Staying Active Is Important

Chess routine

In life, the need to understand what got us to where we are is Important. The reason is simple, we need to keep growing, and the best way to do that is to stick with what works. The world doesn’t stop to rest and say that it has done enough. The world keeps on moving and growing, learning and capitalizing upon what is known. If we are to stay relevant, we need to stay abreast of the new knowledge and understand how it works with what we already know.

Many times, as people succeed, they wish to sit back in the comfortable chair. They want to enjoy what they’ve done and the rewards they have reaped. And yet you take a look at those who do more and live longer and have more productive lives, the one thing you notice is they are always active. They have their schedules and their standard routine which they stick to on a regular basis.

My mom is 88 years old. Although my mom has her fair share of health concerns, she still does the laundry on a weekly basis. If you look to the actors of Hollywood, beloved actors who last the longest are those who stay active and keep to their routines.  Some of the biggest names in finance, live lives of simplicity and routine.

Having a passion for capitalizing upon, a daily routine we do our best to follow regardless of the situations, and having the desire to learn and know more, are the tools that help us stay active and feel engaged. We should never give up on ourselves. And we should always remember, it’s all the little things which add up to give us a great life.

Thank you for being with me today, I look forward to being with you again tomorrow.

In the meantime, have some fun and don’t forget to smile. It makes everybody wonder what you’re up to.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
