We all have memberships. Formally, we belong to clubs, organizations, social networks, and more. More importantly, we also belong to our families, friends, communities, and our world.
We need to break out of the staleness of the status quo. We need to make conscious choices to create the lives we live. We need an awakening of sorts.
We need to remember why we do what we do, who we are trying to be, and how we want to move next. We need to embrace and engage the memberships in our lives with passion. We need to not just remember, but to also ReMember. (Note: I know a guy who wrote a book with that title. You should totally check it out.)
Here’s how (otherwise known as my fab five):
- RePurpose: Return to the mission.
- ReLease: Let go of your baggage.
- ReCast: Create a new vision for the future.
- ReSpond: Put compelling action into motion.
- Own It: Dare to live the life you want.
When we remember these messages every day in a distracting world, we ReMember: we actively recommit to our most precious memberships, relationships, and work in the world.
