What Even Matters?

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

This blog post was inspired by my recent podcast that unpacks "What Even Matters".


So much of our life is spent on things that lack "Worth"... they are truly worthless when you look at the summation of what they give us. I was recently talking to a group of my friends about this very topic of worth.


We talked about this interesting perspective that an item can both contain worth and can be worthless depending on the situation.


Lets think about it like this, "Watching a TV Show ๐Ÿ“บ". This show can contain worth and it can be worthless.

  • Worth = I had a long day and I worked hard and I need to unwind and TV show will help me relax and rest.

  • Worthless = I am not tired, I have a lot I could do in the day, I think I am just going to watch this show because I am not sure what else to do.

Interesting eh? I thought so for sure!

On the podcast (SPOILER ALERT) we talk about this idea of death. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Yeah I know I think I just lost 80% of the readers at this point ๐Ÿ˜…


Stick with me for a second though! Death is something that does come at the end of our life, so what is it that we even what to make sure we have done? What is it that we want to discover about ourselves, or what passions do we have inside of us that we want to share with the world. If we are lucky we will make it to the average age of a person living in the U.S., but life is complicated and messy. So the only true time that we are promised is the now.


So Beginning to Begin starts with TODAY. Its not a depressing thought as so much an inspiring thought to remember that there is a timeline. There is a deadline, so lets make the most of our life. Are we needing to spend more time with Family? Are we needing to watch less TV and pursue something with more worth in our lives? My vote is yes! ๐Ÿ‘

We talk about a few other ideas on the podcast, we talk about finding your Why. The core of what you should be doing. Why are you building {Fill in the Blank}, why are you caring for {Fill in the Blank} why are you helping people with {Fill in the Blank}. If your not that far into realizing your dreams, that is 100% okay....ideal actually ๐Ÿ˜Šbecause as you start to build this thing you can "Start with Why" (Book by Simeon Sinek).


Knowing which dreams to pursue can be tricky. It really can if you are like me with 100 different ideas every day of the week. It can be hard to know which dreams you should pursue VS. which dreams don't matter as much. It can lead to indecision because

you want to pick the best and most lasting dream. Well if your there like I was, then read the book Dream Big by Bob Goff. He is a great author (He also reads his own audible) talking about how to find these Dreams that are lasting. Go Read it! You Got This!


Everyone I have ever talked to wants to pursue a life that matters. It can be really hard to find what matters in your life. It can be hard to unlock what you should be doing, but starting is sometimes the biggest obstacle.


My Grandpa always had this phrase, "If you start then you are 50% done".

I am sure some data analyst out there might some plot holes ๐Ÿ˜† BUT the idea is that, we spend SO MUCH OF OUR TIME thinking that we are going to do something, but once we start we realize it was a lot easier than we thought.


So if you want to start discovering what even matters, then read Dream Big, then read Finding your Why. Then become a member of Beginning to Begin ๐Ÿ˜‰..jk.....but really ๐Ÿ˜‚


Seriously though, I want to help you accomplish the ideas that are stuck in your head. I want you to realize your own dreams!
