Groundhog Day

To me this isn’t about the animal, the winter, or when spring will arrive. For me Groundhog Day is about the movie with Bill Murray. The message of the movie is that you can make anything of your life, it’s up to you whether it’s a life you’re proud of or not.

In What Next I write “To me it seems that asking ‘what next’ is really the search for mental and physical stimulation, the search for happiness. Asking ‘what next’ is a way to break the ‘groundhog day syndrome’ so many of us feel.” Too many people use words or phrases like “drudgery,” “same old same old,” or “not much,” to describe their life and what they’re doing on a daily basis. Not me.

Every day is another chance to meet new people, to connect with others on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn, to learn from people who have done the things I want to do. Whether I take the chance or run and hide like the groundhog after seeing its shadow, is up to me.

Tonight I’m once again putting myself in what many people would describe as an awkward situation. I’m going to a restaurant/bar in NY to meet a highly successful entrepreneur who, until yesterday, I had never heard of. Why am I doing that? Because that’s what people who ask “what next” do, they seek out people more successful than them, people they can learn from, and they go for it.

I’m sure it’s going to be a little weird at first but what do I have to loose? That’s the attitude more people should have.

Check back tomorrow for an update on how it went tonight.
