A Conversation: What’s Important to you?

Tony and I often chat on IM, email, phone, and now Twitter.  Usually, we are joking around or talking about some crazy idea we have.  Every once in a while we will chat about more serious topics.  This is a good example of one of those times.

Tony Kimberly: Can I ask you a weird question?

Matt Bernier: sure

Tony Kimberly: What’s important to you?

Matt Bernier: What do you mean by that?

Tony Kimberly: Uhh, in the long run, in life.  What’s important to you.

Tony Kimberly: I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching and deciding what I want out of life and what I want to do/accomplish

Matt Bernier: To be happy, around the people I love, and to be comfortable in the life I have

Tony Kimberly: Kind of separate of that (but not) I had a good discussion with Beth earlier about Values, which seems kind of bigger.  So I was trying to think of it as ‘Guiding Principles’

Matt Bernier: And to know that I earned my position in life with the feeling of accomplishment that goes with earning it.

Tony Kimberly: I like that

Matt Bernier: You gotta know where you want to go, to know how you are going to get there

Tony Kimberly: yeah, so I’ve known for a long time some of the things I want to accomplish in life but I feel like I haven’t defined some other things that I want to experience.  Its really weird because I’ve always pictured myself doing these things alone and I recently realized that when I picture my future I still picture it alone.

Matt Bernier: I do that a lot too. I think that is what many of Mel and my fights are really about.  Much of that comes from the fact that when you are working towards your goals, you do it by yourself.  Whether or not you plan on taking the results of those goals and making them available for more than yourself does not really matter when you are working and have your head down.

Matt Bernier: I just make a point to remember that the things I am doing now are for both Melissa and myself.  This actually gives me more motivation to do them right, and push them out in the world

Tony Kimberly: Yeah, I think that’s awesome.
