|(CONTEMPLATING THE BIG QUESTION OF "WHAT NOW?")|
No, no... I can do anything that I want…Go to the beach, go to one of my local coffee shops, sleep in, go workout, or do absolutely nothing. A funny thing happens – or should I say happened to me.
I have realized that the “structured Kurt” (who I have endlessly tried to ditch and replace with the just “go with the flow Kurt") is in reality rather stubborn. What I have come to know about myself is that I really do need some structure, otherwise I don’t feel good internally. And more than that, I guess I just need to be minimally “productive” with my day to feel fulfilled. Whether that means to spend 2 hours a day working on one of my online businesses or writing this blog entry – I feel way better once I complete my “goal of the day”. But once I do complete it – I then feel like I can do what I feel like…e.g. surf, beach, read, gym, etc. So what I have decided is that the “semi structured Kurt” is the way to go!
So what does this mean beyond the day to day? Now comes the very BIG question…how should I spend all of my time and energy? Having a corporate job for 9 years, I didn’t have the luxury of doing what I wanted – you have to act and do what’s in the best interest of the company and now suddenly I can actually spend it on what I want to. I have decided for my year here that these are the goals that I wanted to accomplish. In the spirit of accountability I have decided to share them with you so that you (friends and family) can help keep me on course. But please keep in mind – there are likely to be several course adjustments along the way.
