How am I Doing?

Have you ever wondered how you were doing?  Have you ever wished there were a way to somewhat objectively find a way to tangibly measure if you are heading the right direction?

What if I were to give you the gift of time travel?  The ability to look back at the cumulative effects of your decisions weeks, months, and even years ago.  The gift is granted.

The product of your decisions, albeit good, bad, or more likely some combination of both, are all around you.  That which surrounds you today, is largely a result of the choices made in the past.  It is the fruit of the seeds you have previously sown.  If you are not happy with your weight, your house, your relationships, your finances, your career, your faith, it is likely you have made the wrong choices in the past.  On the contrary, if you are rich, thin and happy, you have likely made many right (although not necessarily easy, or the path of least resistance) choices.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am not too naive to understand there are exceptions; bad things happening to good people.  But if we are honest, and keep it completely real, we have to concede that products of our previous decisions are all around us.

If you love what you see; do more of the same.  Continue to grow and balance your life.  You are on the path to Oola!  If you like me and most people, and see areas to improve, take ownership in the poor choices in your past, forgive yourself, and decide to move forward and balance and grow your life.  This is the pursuit of Oola!
