You’ve got that idea and you want to make happen. How do you go about it? Well, sitting on your butt all day won’t help.
It helps to get out of the house once in a while. Give yourself some time away from the computer or what ever you happen to be doing. Go for a walk, bike ride, or run. It’ll help you cool off and relieve stress. This tactic works for me quite often. I feel exhausted but refreshed at the same time. If you know what I mean.
After a short break to rest up, I’m ready to go back at my planning.
Now that you’ve had a chance to relax and do something different for a change, it’s time to start putting things all together. You need a plan to help you get that plan going. In other words, you have to create a plan to get yourself off the ground. This is the second step and very important.
Without a strategy to get off the ground, you may as well hang it up. This is where a lot of people fail. Trust me, I know a thing or two about failing. Idea after idea, excuse after excuse, and what do I have to show for? Nothing. This is my attempt at actually making something work for a change. Now I need a strategy.
Where do you want to go?
First off, we have to figure out where we want to go. I’ve decided on England. I want to see various parts of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The UK is a great place to start. Lots to do, lots to see. When I’m done with the UK, I’ll head off to Scandinavia. Very beautiful country lies in Scandinavia. Much untouched beauty there.
Not only do we have to know where we want to go, but we have to know what we want to do. The basics I know. I want to immerse myself into the cultures, taste the food, experience the life of the people, learn their language, etc. It will be a whole new take on a journey that will be filmed and photographed for the world to see.
How are you going to fund this project?
I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but traveling is expensive. Filming and Photographing foreign lands, takes a lot of money. I think a great place to start would be Kickstarter. Many shows and films have got off the ground via pledges through Kickstarter, not just films though, art projects and many other things as well. Just about anything you can think of.
The problem for me at the moment is going to be coming up with a Business Plan. That’s basically what I need to succeed. I need to figure out what kind of equipment I’m going to have to take with me, the associate cost with traveling, how much I’ll need to spend on food, any clothing expenses I’ll incur, sleeping quarters, and even how I’m going to put all of that together.
Where to go from here?
From here on out, there’s no looking back. I’ve got to make myself get up each day and do some research. Find out as much as I can about what I want to accomplish out of this journey. So, I’m committing myself to at least two hours of research every day to gather the information I need. I’ll come up with an estimated cost of this trip and I’m sure it’ll add up. Documentaries aren’t cheap. Once I’ve gathered all the information I need, I can head off to Kickstarter.
It’s all uphill from here. Strap yourself in for the ride.
Ever notice how people change? Some people change trying to be like other people. Others change for a need more or less. Then there are those who are forced to change.
I Choose to change because right now, my life is in Chaos. It’s Hecktic. There is nothing worse than being 30 years old and having done nothing with your life. So, here’s what I’m going to start doing to make it better.
Sense I’m avid about losing weight and even possibly running a marathon, I need to get out there and start hangin with people that already do that. So, that’s what I’m going to do. If you want to be successful, you’ve got to hang out around successful people. If you want to be Fit, you’ve got to hang out around Fit people.
Why is this important? Influence. People in our lives influence us everyday. If you hang out with Smart people, guess what, you’re going to have the urge to become smarter, and hopefully do just that. Heaven forbid the general population get any dumber.
Some people have family who are just lazy, obese, can’t get off their butts for nothing. What do you do about that? Well, for starters, instead of hanging out with the people just like you at school or work. Start making new friends. Have that desire to make changes in your life. Your new friends will respect you for that and probably will even help you.
Networking. I’m going to start Networking a heck of a lot more. People that you talk to and connect with, that’s what it’s about nowadays. If you have connections, you’ll go far. If you have connections, you can get yourself out there, become known.
Sense Changes are inevitable, why not start making your own changes now? No excuses. So, my question for you today is this.
What kind of changes are you going to start making in your life? Start today. Otherwise, you’ll end up like me, 30 years old, (or older) and not getting anywhere in life. It’s never too late to start now. Join me in this #OccupyThisChange movement.
