What really set them apart from the rest?

What did

Picasso
and
Hitler,

Mozart
and 
Osama,

Elvis
and
Prince,

JFK
and
Fidel,

Jack Kerouac
and 
Jack the Ripper

have in common?

They all had a goal, a purpose, that drove their daily lives. A direction, intentionally mapped, for them to pursue with conviction.

Direction doesn’t always lead to happiness. But it does guarantee purposeful movement. (Whether it’s “progress” or not is up for debate).

And 90% of our struggles start with starting. Looking at our compass, committing to one, defined direction and taking the first step toward getting there.

If you haven’t ever taken control over your direction, now is a great time of year to start.

Make a goal for 2017. Pick a direction for your life.

Break it down into a repeatable 30-minute block of time that you can commit to every day next year.

Take the first step toward the future of your choosing.
