Patience patience patience…and spend time doing what you love.

Blogs will not be built in a day. Okay, perhaps they will, but I’ll still need time and dedication to getting this up and going the way I envision it.

I’ve started getting emails from Jonathan Mead and Paid to Exist. It is an amazing concept really, that you can leave behind all the constraints that exist in the 9 to 5 world and instead cultivate an authentic life following your dreams, interests, and heart…and be, well, paid to exist. I haven’t committed yet to the program; it is scary, and I’m not sure if I’m ready to supplant all my 9 to 5 goals with something more encompassing. But I’m a sucker for self improvement plans (at least learning/reading about them), and looking for the next step. There are so many things that I do well, those natural talents that I enjoy doing well…how can I do more of that? THIS is what I’m asking myself these days.

From the Paid to Exist Compass:

  • What does the best day ever look like to you?
  • What do you want to be remembered for when you are gone?
  • What would work you’d never want to stop pursuing look and feel like?
  • What fuels you, keeps you focused and lights your heart on fire?
