If you know where you are going, plot your course on a map. It makes sense. It gives you the precise instructions you need to get to your destination. Deciding where you want to go in life is much the same. If you know who you want to be or what you want to do, there will be certain steps you can identify and action to set you on the right course.
But what if you don’t know what you want to do? What then?
It can be very easy to sit around waiting for inspiration or looking for ideas, and getting so caught up in it all that you never end up taking any action at all. Years pass by and suddenly all you have is ‘if only I had…..’ or ‘what if….’.
So many people say this, but it is true; just do it! Get cracking and do something. Anything. It’s got to be easier to get to an unknown destination if you at least set off. It’s not the most direct route but who knows what you might discover on your journey.
This whole blogging every day for 100 days is a bit like the second scenario. I’m 23 days into the challenge now and whilst I am enjoying creating different content and blog posts, I am still not sure where it is all going. I didn’t set off with an action plan because it was an impulsive challenge take-up. Being nearly a quarter of the way through, I am starting to feel like I am getting into my stride. Even if I only post a micro blog, it feels great to not break the chain.
This is post 23 of 100 blogs in 100 days.
