No man is an island. For that matter, neither is any woman, child or organism of any type. If you breathe, you need a community. Now I’m sure that there are the odd thing here or there that contradict this, but from a generalized standpoint, our relationships with others are one of the essential things that define our lives.

Let’s take a look at some practical application:

There’re numerous things going on around you at any given time. At the same time, I hear people talking about being bored or lonely. What’s stopping you from asking that person out across the table? Fear of rejection? Or maybe you want to go and dance at a party, but you’re worried about what people might think. Guess what, guys? A lot of this stuff is inconsequential.

What do you want to be known for?

Kevin is one of my favourite people to talk to lately; I can pretty much fire any question at him and he’ll mull it over and come up with a highly detailed response, usually after I’m asleep, there for me to find whenever I next open my computer. The question this time?

“What do you want to be known for?”

Not the easiest question to answer! There was a time where I didn’t really have a plan for what I wanted to be doing in the next 6 months. Next year. Next five years. Heck, there was a time where I was living cheque to cheque without any care for what was happening in the next few days; I just lived for the moment as if nothing else ever mattered. I’ll tell you right now that that’s not the way to be and that consumer debt is a demon that you should vanquish as soon as possible, but that’s another post unto itself. If you want me to drop some knowledge on that (with my little brother the Financial Rep as the guest speaker—all Palmers have worked in a bank at one point or another…), let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to make it happen!
