    I love this, and it’s an idea I’ve been pondering recently. How do I balance striving for new goals personally and professionally with that total acceptance of where I am now. I haven’t worded that very well, but I guess the balance of being present while planning for the future and having goals.

      That is so well said, I get exactly what you mean and I’ve spent the last seven years devoted to pursuing the answers to that question. In fact, I have an announcement next week about a secret project I’ve been working on that shares the approach I have discovered helps to resolve that tension between striving and acceptance. Stay tuned!
