Quought for the Day #12 – Rick Cockrum

Talk about variety – Rick Cockrum wears many hats. Rick runs a software company which develops software for personal effectiveness. He is a philosopher. He and his wife operate a single screen theater and best of all, he runs a personal development blog (which is almost a collection of his articles) where he writes on variety of topics.

Rick sent a question that is so timely and provides a new perspective on planning for your new year.

Optimist warning: Once you read this question, either you are thinking or you are lying that you are not thinking 🙂

Here’s Rick’s Quought for the Day

“In twenty years, what do you want to remember?”

Rick’s note accompanying the question: The point of the question is that in setting goals, we look at the next day, week, year, 5 years, lifetime. I want to turn the question around. Often people look differently at the importance of what they’re planning if they think of remembering it, rather than trying to do it.

Quought = Question that provokes thought. Questions are important. Thinking is important. Questions that make you think are very important!
