I have started to ask myself three important questions — how much of my time today helped me develop spiritually? How much helped promote my creativity and how much time did I spend on reaching out to help others develop? The short answer amounts to about 25% or less of each day.
It's not a mistake that I've found myself dwelling somewhere in the middle part of my life — but it's only the middle if I actually live to be 108 years old. A more accurate guess means that I've passed the middle mark several years back.
If I'm going to double or triple that percentage when would be a good time to start? Which now leads me to the largest question of all — what exactly am I waiting for?
I've always been investing in the spiritual, the creative and into others. But now there's an urgency I'm feeling in my soul more than I've felt it ever before — like I'm awakening from a long mind numbing kind of sleep.
I'm marking it down by acknowledging that I must act now without delay. Without any regrets.

So it begins. Right now. Will you join me?
