Who are you? What do you want?
“This is not an answering machine, this is a questioning machine. Most people walk through their entire life without knowing the answer to this: Who are you? And what do you want?” – this was my welcome message at my cellphone voice mail for years.
The interesting part is that most of the messages I got was raw laughter or “listen to this” – I even had friends call me up to ask me not to answer the phone the next time they called, because they wanted to play the message to friends.
But these are two brilliant and powerful questions. The answer can be: “me, call me” or it can result in a major midlife crisis.
So I ask you this today, not only to challenge you – but to also because I would love to get to know you.
What do you want?
