What’s your Life Goal in 6 words?

March 27, 2015

Twitter has been buzzing with people’s #6WordLifeGoal recently. And while some in the Twittersphere aspire to promote animal rescue, others want to travel more or spend more time with family. Still others hope to “change the world” by reuniting boy band One Direction with their recently parted brother, Zayn Malik!

But the question “What is your 6-word life goal?” is actually quite profound. In fact, some of the answers we heard from our colleagues here at Linkage are downright inspiring.

Many were about family…

“Be balanced, kind, and family focused.” —Kelly Gruber, Office Manager

“Guide my family through all obstacles.” —Joe Sinopli, Senior Programming Project Manager

“Love, family, horizons expanding, travel, equity.” —Lauren Rodriguez, Consultant

“Be the best father and husband.” —Demetriouse Russell, Director of Strategic Accounts

Some were more philosophical…

“Enjoy today; don’t worry about tomorrow.” —Sarah Breigle, Marketing Director

“Help people live their best life” —Sarah Bettman,  Principal Consultant

“To be a force for good.” —Owen Broch, Development Training Specialist

And others were practical…
