Is It Worth It?

21 Mar

“Let it go. Whatever it is — It’s not worth it.
Focus on your goal. Whatever it is — It IS worth it.
Your mind can only process either one or the other — now, you tell me, which one’s worthy?”Jared Blake DiCroce

I like the way Jared summed up this simple philosophy. (To read more advice from Jared, click on his name)

After so many recent changes in my life, I have come to realize that very little matters to me anymore — or rather, the way I view the things that DO matter has changed dramatically.

People matter.

Health matters.

Freedom and independence matter.

Joy matters.

Doing what is right matters.

… Frankly, anything that does not contribute to the above list is worthless to me now!

    I really hear what you are saying here. I’ve recently done an intensive re-evaluation of my goals and values and I’m finding that if something isn’t in integrity with my values, it just doesn’t matter to me and I’m no longer going to waste time on the things that don’t matter.

    Thank you for this reminder today. 🙂

    What a great philosophy – making your life a clean surface.

    I like your philosophy to life and agree with it – after all, all the things you list are the important things in life.
