What You Want Drives Everything

A lot of people I talk to are running on autopilot.

Their daily mode of operation is reacting to the situations that a lifetime of decisions has led them to.

If you ask them, “What do you want?” they can’t give you a clear and immediate answer.

Which makes me wonder:

How can you decide what to do every day if you don’t know what you want?

It’s like driving around without knowing where you want to end up.

How do you know which turns to take?

At best, you’ll end up merely dodging dangerous situations to eventually end up somewhere uninteresting.
