Do What You Want

What a novel idea!  Just go about your daily life doing what you want when you want.  But it doesn’t work that way for you!  Me either!  I’m still trying to perfect my approach.

On the surface, the idea has a wonderful sense to it, though.  So, why not figure out a way to be able to live your life with that sense?  It would seem to be possible because others appear to do it.

Take the late, great Barbara Jordan for instance.  Here’s what she has to say on the subject.  “All my growth and development led me to believe that if you really do the right thing, and if you play by the rules, and you’ve got good enough solid judgment and common sense, that you’re going to be able to do whatever you want to do with your life.”  From my view, Barbara Jordan seemed to live the sentiment expressed in that statement in a very large way.

So to summarize, if you want to do what you want, you have to:



    •  Exercise good judgment and common sense in everything that you do


    • You can’t cheat…ever!


    • In all things, you must focus on what is the right thing


  • Finally, act on everything related to the above three items in a lifelong effort
