Do You Have a GPS for Your Life?

Posted by on December 31st, 2012 with 0 Comments

And what if you did?

“A goal is to your life as a map is to your journey”
Monica Wofford, Contagious Quotations

A GPS tells us where we departed from, where our arrival point is, and where we are in relation to the two points. It can also tell us if we’re off-track, show us points of interest, offer up alternative routes, and do much more.

If you had an LPS – a Life Positioning Satellite – that showed you where you are currently located on your life path, and gave you directions to your destination, would you use it? Would you cling to every command it gave? Would you trust it?

Personally, I don’t use a GPS. I’ve got some sort of Luddite gene in me that makes me refuse technology crutches. I’ve always trusted my ‘inner compass’ and it’s worked well for me.

But I don’t totally trust my life to my inner compass. My Life Positioning Satellite consists of my goals, my values, and my wife. Between those three inputs, I have a pretty good idea where I stand and where I’m going. The LPS makes sure that my inner compass doesn’t take me too far off track.

What is your Life Positioning Satellite? Is it your parents? Your spouse? Your God? A mentor? Is it a mission or vision? Your goals or values? Or are you winging it?

I’ve been spending the past couple of days looking at last years goals and working on this year’s goals. It’s a good practice to get out my compass, find my ‘true north’, and make sure that my current path is taking me where I want to go.

How about you?
