What makes you want to start your day?

Life, beautiful life! A brisk run. Lots of coffee. Nothing.

Do you set realistic goals?

Yes, reasonable, but challenging. I'm better with short-term than long-term. Goals? Yes. Realistic? We'll see. If I get out of bed, goal attained!

Did you go after your dreams?

Yes, and I am living them! No, I was too afraid. No, they weren't very practical. No, but I still can! Yes, my dreams evolved as I did.

Are you influenced by your surroundings?

No, my surroundings are influenced by me! I’m fairly adaptable. I have more energy when it’s sunny. Yes, I have a messy home and a messy life.

How do you feel about taking risks?

It’s the only way to live life to the fullest. Small risks make life more interesting. Risk is ok, if it’s properly analyzed. Go for it ONLY if you have nothing left to lose.

Do you have to give back to be truly fulfilled?

Absolutely. You don’t have to, but it really helps. That’s what the do-gooder’s are for. Everyone should try it and see for themselves.
