Are you living the lifestyle that you desire? First you have to take the time for introspection – reflect upon your thoughts and attitudes and conduct and desires in order to create that life. In an interview with The Father Life Nigel Marsh, author of Fat Forty and Fired, gives a piece of advice to apply to your own life at least once a year.
Nigel Marsh, author of the book Fat, Forty, and Fired, had this to say in an interview with The Father Life:
“I suppose the greatest lesson I learned is how right Socrates was when he said all those years ago that ‘ the unexamined life is not worth living.’ Making the time and taking the effort to think, truly think, about your life is the main battle.
It is so easy to just exist – to make a living as opposed to making a life. The 5th Century mystic St. Benedict once gave a devoted follower the memorable advice, ‘Pause for a moment, you wretched weakling, and take stock of your miserable existence’.” Not a bad piece of advice to apply to your own life at least once a year.”
To live the lifestyle that we desire – to choose the life we want – we first have to take the time for introspection – we must first reflect upon our thoughts and attitudes and conduct and desires in order to create the life that we wish to live.
