3 key moments in a human life

Warren Rustand said that there are 3 key moments in a human life:

  1. Realise – Realise why you are here.  Realise what is your gift that must be shared with the world. 
  2. Decide – Decide to do something about it.
  3. Act – Actually do something about it.
There are a few lucky people that get moments 1, 2 and 3 together when they are young – successful sports stars (Rafa Nadal, Christiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi); great solo musicians (Barry Douglas, Yo Yo Ma). 
For the rest of us, this occurs later in life.
In the normal human life, moment 1 tends to occur around the age of 45.  Moment 2 happens about 10 years later, around 55.
And, Moment 3…   moment 3 happens at the time of the first heart attack.
I wrote about Warren Rustand (Rights Without Responsibilities) in February 2010 after my trip to the Entrepreneurs’s Organisation University in Saudi Arabia.
