As I assimilate, decompress and rest after being bounced through my 3rd World Domination Summit in Portland, I have a strong desire not to write a post about my experience there.
I’m not going to tell you what I learned or what my take-aways are. I’m not going to tell you about the truly wonderful friends I met, both old and new. I’m not going to share anything about the conference, because, honestly, that doesn’t matter.
#WDS2013 reminded me fiercely of our ceaseless capability to contribute, so let me ask you something.
What if there was nothing casual about today?
What if today wasn’t just another day where you do your stuff, just like you normally would?
What if today was special?
I’d suggest that it is, but of course we all go about our lives as we normally do and rarely see it as anything other than our “regular old life“.
So for today, for just this day, I want you to take a stand in your life.
Do it right now. Literally. Get out of your seat and stand up.
Take the decision that there’s nothing random, wandering or indifferent about today. Take the chance to declare what matters, whether to yourself, to a loved one or to the whole damn world.
Assert your intention.
Just decide that you won’t let any more time go by without taking a damn chance for something that feels true.
Don’t overthink it. Don’t sweat it. Don’t think it needs to be a certain size or a certain way. That’s all bullshit.
You’re here for a reason – because you have a life that can materially contribute.
So tell me, what does taking a stand in your life look like?
