Oh, uncharted territories of 2018... What will you contain?
I have a secret.
And the secret has to do with BIG changes that are afoot for this coming year.
Big, exciting, life-altering changes that will radically alter the way I work (and, for my clients, the way we work together); while providing lots of rich and unparalleled story material for your reading (and/or viewing) pleasure.
The course is set. The winds are brisk. An uncertain future beckons from the far side of the moon.
The last time I embarked on something as epic as this -- something that would demand all of my attention, resolve, and fortitude -- I didn't yet know how BIG it would become.
I'm talking about the time I accompanied my brother on a one-way flight to Atlanta, Georgia, for "the first two weeks" of HIS epic adventure thru-hiking the 2,000+ mile Appalachian Trail -- and decided, once I was out there, to put everything on hold, and keep going for 6 more months.
All the way, across thirteen states... to Mt. Katahdin.
In the months leading up to departure, HE was the one researching gear and consulting multiple spreadsheets and sawing the end off his toothbrush to shave a half-ounce off his pack weight...
... Which is what allowed ME to show up, a week or two before he was due to leave, and suggest that I "see him off" for the start of it.
At the time, I didn't even have hiking poles. That's how committed I was going into it.
That time, I got to skip over all the anxiety that comes with anticipating the thing.
Now, though, I don't have that luxury.
Now, I've been the one researching, planning, and working hard to get all the pieces into place.
Now, the BIG THING is almost here, looming on the not-so-distant horizon; far enough to retain an air of mystery, and yet close enough to be inevitable.
And I can feel it coming. Just about 12 weeks away.
I'll share more details in a future post...
But for this week, a question:
If you were to see 2018 as the year you took action on that BIG dream...
The year you gave up incremental change in favor of the holistic, immersive, reality-altering kind...
What would that look like, for you?
What is the BIG THING that you wish you had the time/money/freedom/courage to pursue?
And IF you were to act on it in 2018 -- who might you become, because of it?
