It's time for you. Can't just stops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and dreens. After encountering hundreds of high achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reach your goals. And now for today's question. If I had to give a eulogy at my own funeral, what would I say about me? Well, if this isn't one of the most classic questions of all time, you've probably heard the old, you know, write out your eulogy type of question or exercise, and I'm thinking today, maybe it's not just about maybe it's two separate exercises. Maybe it's what would I...

...say about me today, and what would I like to be able to say about me into those two match maybe that's a more interesting exercise than just what would what would I want to be said about me at my funeral? You know, actually taking a taking the temperature of where you are versus where you want to be in this area and I'm sure if I'm honest and I do this, there's going to be some glaring differences between where I want to be and where I am. Where what I would honestly be able to say today? You know, I have this idealized version of myself that I'm I'm all these things. And if I'm being really honest, though, am I doing the actions that show that I'm really that thing? And maybe I'm not, and maybe that's what this, you know, doing this today, is going to help me get back in line for and get back on the path to...

...being where I want to be. It's a constant course correction, isn't it? This whole life thing it is. Wouldn't it be just so much easier if we just set it and forget it and hey, we never have to worry about that again? But it's not that way, right. It's a constant course correction. It's constantly looking at where I am I, where do I want to go? Where am I, where do I want to go, and what's going to help me get there, what's going to what's going to give me the life I want? And it's constantly flowing and changing and I think that's why something is classic as this whole Eulogy Exercise Never goes out of style, because it's not like it's something you can do once and forget about it. You constantly have to be vigilant to be who you really want to be. It's not easy. It's not easy. See You tomorrow.
