The plan, in writing

I’m a firm believer that if you write down your goals and see them on paper, there is a certain accountability that comes from it. Like damn, now I have to do it. It’s on paper. So my ultimate goal (in writing) for this new path in life, well, is to live. To be awake and aware of this Earth and life, and what it offers to each and every person. I want to get off the beaten path and live a life free of routine and fear as Lindsey Tramuta says in her blog post, Liberating Yourself from Fear and Routine to Achieve Greatness. Her pre-requisites to achieving the Untemplate lifestyle (another great resource) are thus:

1. Passion, 2. Curiosity, 3. Confidence, and 4. Fearlessness

Passion, check. Curiosity, check. Confidence, it’s growing, so check. Fearlessness, well…I think as long as I don’t end up in the middle of the wilderness somewhere, I’ll be ok. I think one to add to that is Courage. Because if you lack that, really, you’re screwed.

But back to the plan. Here it is….oops, and there it went.

I can’t give it all away now. Stay tuned….I’m just buttering you up for it.

  1. Totally agree with you, I carry a library of notebooks with me where I write literally EVERYTHING down 🙂 ideas, to dos, goals, dreams, it really helps in fulfilling them!

    • I love it! I have only two notebooks now, but I’m going to take as many as I can when I travel. Ha, who needs more clothes? It’s going to be all journals and books.
