Instead of thinking about what you might accomplish in your day, year, or life, focus instead on how others might be impacted by your words and actions. This life isn’t about us. It’s about God and others, although you would never know it by much of our modern culture. Forget about trying to learn this truth from Hollywood or Madison Avenue.
This life – your life – exists solely to glorify God and to serve others (Matthew 22:37-39). So, instead of calculating what you might do with your life, perhaps instead determine how your life can have the greatest impact for God and for others. This, after all, is the meaning of life.
