Do you know the meaning of your life? That is a wake-up call to think!

Is your life on autopilot? Are you still dreaming of your future? Do you act?

When I was a kid, there was a cartoon that played on Saturday mornings; "The Jetsons." You may remember. It made us dream of what the future could be with its flying cars and futuristic cities.

It's been a long time since I've seen a cartoon or similar show. I don't have young children, but this type of show seems to be long gone.

What makes children dream today? Because it is the dreams of some kids who have created the Elon Musk and Jeff Besos of our today's world. And before them, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

I do not know? I currently don't have any answers.

Maybe it's a question of age. Am I too old at 50 to dream of the future?

Today, my future is tomorrow, the next 5 to 10 years. Not really in 100 years!


We learned that we cannot know where we are going if we do not know where we come from, but I will add that we cannot know where we are going if we do not know what we want.

We must try to answer this question as early as possible in our lives, even if it is inevitable that our needs will change along the way.

Knowing what you want to accomplish in your lifetime is part of the answer to why you are here.

That is a challenging question to answer. For some, it takes a lifetime; for others, there will never be an answer.


Reading an article this morning by one of my favourite authors made me realize how much our lives are on autopilot.

In fact, according to him, more than 97% of the population lives by automatism. Without a long-term vision, without interest in innovating our life in general.

We repeat the same gestures, routes, work, restaurants, etc. Day after day, always the same routines.

Everything, again, comes down to one choice; follow the herd or create your own reality. Unique, innovative, exciting, thrilling.

From the start, our parents create a mould for us in which we evolve according to their desires and visions of life. Then, for most of us, we just continue to wander in that same mould.

Over the years, we add new relationships that come from moulds similar to ours, and life often becomes a long series of continuous redundancies.

Only when we decide to break this mould that our evolution fully resume its course.

For my part, it was only when I decided to break out of my mould that my life, both professional and personal, began to evolve significantly, even unexpectedly.

So ask yourself the following questions:

How long has your life been on autopilot?

What will you decide to do to change that?
