Could vs Should

What would your life be like if you replaced the picture in your head of "Should be" with "Could Be."?

What would you do?

With whom would you do it?

What would you change today, right now?

What COULD you be doing now instead of SHOULD be?

Who would you become?

(From Matt is a 35-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. Matt achieved this goal pretty early and enjoyed it for a while, but eventually realized there might be other stuff he was missing out on. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he'd saved to wander around Asia until it ran out.

A few months into his trip, a travel buddy gave Matt an idea. They were standing around taking pictures in Hanoi, and his friend said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do that dance. I'll record it." He was referring to a particular dance Matt does. It's actually the only dance Matt does. He does it badly. Anyway, this turned out to be a very good idea.

Watch the video and as my friend Bronwyn says, "Smile with me." Not only did I smile with Bronwyn, but I got a little teary-eyed too. Enjoy.

What are you doing with your life? Is it what you want? It may not be what you expected, but is it what you want? Is it what you COULD be doing?
