This will be a fun list for me.
So, thirty is eyeing me hard.
As it approaches, I mostly think…age doesn’t matter as much as it did when I was 16, but the magnitude of adulthood grows heavier by the day. Friends I grew up with are now a part of raising our future. College buddies are becoming local leaders. Every day, I sense that now, more than ever, my involvement is needed in something bigger than myself.
That being said…
adulting is hard.
The pressures of leadership, the threads of consequential outcomes, and navigating the endless politics of people, and while just maintaining the basics of life could have oneself feeling stretched. Our entrenched responsibilities pulling our energy and focus away from our long-term vision of success. Making it so easy to lose focus on our most honest desires.
When I start to lose focus…I make a list.
This list will be a mix of fun things and things I should have mastered by the time I reach 30.
