Contemplating Adventure as I get Chopped Up by Professionals
And now for some ridiculousness...

Knowing Your NOTs

I find that knowing

what is NOT right

what we DON'T want

what is NOT interesting

where we DON'T what to go

what we DON'T want to spend time doing

the actions that WON'T lead to success

and what we can't do

is really, really helpful when trying to determine how to best live. And if we want to experience more adventure and misadventure, then it is doubly important that we acknowledge what we should not allow to get in our way.

What should not be on your list? 

Identifying our NOTs can be painful because we've invested time in energy in them - sometimes a lot of time and energy. Maybe our persona is wrapped up in this thing that is no longer fueling our energy or interest.

  • I'm an athlete
  • I'm a best-selling author
  • I'm an inventor
  • I'm a community leader
  • I'm female comic of the year
  • I'm teaching

Uncommit - decommit - not sure what the right word would be - from a something (or someone?) that is no longer a good use of time and is getting in the way of your progress and opportunity.
