What Do You Want To Do With Your Life?

In addition to consulting micro cap and small cap public companies on business strategy, investor relations and marketing...I commonly consult with startups and entrepreneurs launching or growing their business.  Regardless of the size of the company I frequently realize that people are more interested in other businesses.  Not because they have entrepreneurial A.D.D., but because their passion is in another field. 

I digress.  If you are trying to figure out what you want to do with your life, here are two questions that can help.

There are two questions you should ask yourself when you are trying to figure out what you want to do with your life.

Question 1:
What would you do if money was no object? If you were a trillion-dollar person, what would you spend your time on?

Write it down. No matter how stupid it sounds, write it down.

Question 2:
What do you want to be remembered for?

Write your eulogy. Yeah you heard that correct. Write down what someone will say about you at your funeral. Write out your timeline and your story. Tell the people at your funeral all of the accolades you have accomplished in your life.

The combination of these two questions should lead you to determine what area you are interested in working in throughout your life and what drives you. It will also give you a list of benchmarks and accomplishments that you want to achieve before your death. The clock's ticking. In my experience, the thing or career path you should be taking is something that you loved as a child and for years and years. You just haven't figured out how to make money doing it yet. But the first step is figuring out exactly what you want to do and what makes you happy, and what you want to be remembered for. Once you know that, now it's time to make a business model out of what you love.  Hope this helps, I know its' helped me...
