Embarking on a Year-long Journey
Monday, March 15, 2010
This year, I have undertaken the mission of discovering myself for the purpose of figuring out where I am going.
I want to do something or be something. I’m compelled to do something with my life that doesn’t include sitting in a cubicle, working as a cog in a giant machine of a corporation. Don’t get me wrong - there’s nothing wrong with putting in your time for a company that’s worthwhile, but somehow, that just doesn’t fit me. So here I go on my journey.
The premise is simple really: just take time to learn who I am, what things I like and what I am good at. It may, in fact, sound too simple. The odd thing is that I’m one of those people who simply doesn’t take time to figure out my strengths. I am well aware of weaknesses and things I struggle with what I can do to remediate these issues, but when it comes down to it, knowing that isn’t going to propel me in one direction or another.
This year, the way I am going to explore is to:
- Talk to people who know me and can give some insight into what you think I might excel at in the world
- Try things that are new and interesting to me, things that challenge me and bring out a sense of adventure within me
- Read and research new ideas and innovations
- Listen to people who have forged their own path and are the wiser for it
I’m really excited about this! This will definitely be an adventure.
If you are one of those people who knows me and want to give input, please contact me! I’d LOVE to hear from you!
Stay tuned for more adventures in my journey of self-exploration.
