Redefining The End

So what would I be wishing I'd spent more time doing when I was laying on my death bed? This question really stuck with me. As I contemplated the end I pictured myself in those last moments. Who would be there? What would they say to me regarding my life? Maybe more importantly, who wouldn't be there? Who had I left behind that would cause me great remorse in my final moments?

While I can't know for sure, what I can do today is re-define the way I want the end to look for me. And re-defining the end means I've got to re-define "success" in my life. After all, the way you define success will define your path, and the path you're on will determine your destination. For example, if you're travelling today and define success over the next 12 hours as getting from Ohio to Florida, your path will be defined as South (hopefully) and thus your destination will be determined by your path. However, if your path is ill-defined (i.e. North) you'll never get to your desired destination and you'll have regrets about the end.

To that end, I've redefined success in my life, which has redefined my path, which will ultimately determine my destination. Here goes...

SUCCESS: A wife who loves me, kids who know me, friends who need me.
