When I’m out on a long walk, I orient and motivate myself by saying “if you can see it, you can get to it”. This is particularly useful on a day when all the elements are in your favor, but holds true even when the path is less certain.
Quick, Rough, and Useful
Instead of making resolutions this year, I sketched up a quick visual map of my learning plan. Once everything was out on paper, I could see it was too much to tackle immediately, but by bringing it onto a timeline, I could start to orient and adjust. Duration, priority, and opportunity all play into when and how I can start to address some of the things I want to learn more about.
Seeing It is Motivation
I’ve already started acting on it and I’m open to adapting the plan when life and work and time and opportunity start having their impacts. Nothing is set in stone, but I have an idea of where I’m going. I’m motivated to do something, so let the lessons continue and the skill set evolve.
