Invitation: Let's Get Planning for a Satisfying 2021

I'll be taking the next two-three weeks to create my 2021 plan. I look forward to generating Big Hairy Audacious Agile Goals BHAAGS (extra "A" intentional) and a scenario plan story that make the hairs on the back of my neck stand and tingle. There's no downside to thinking big, as long as I have a process that allows me to track my progress and make adjustments. I'll use my Panda Planner to take stock of my daily achievements and plan for an adventurous and misadventurous day, week, month, and year. I'll be blogging about this. But for now, here's my first order of business.

Note: If you'd like to work on your 2021 plan, I've created a private and temporary Facebook Group. You can join me here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/736192860340186

  1. December 15-31st. Generate a vision story for 2021. Create a picture for what an adventurous and audacious year looks like. For me, for where I'm at in my life/health, for this time. By the 28th, I hope to have distilled and crafted a story that expresses my intention for 2021. Here's a copy of my 2019 Goal Statement that I'll be using as my template. Notice that the top portion expressed my key themes and thrusts and the bottom was my scenario plan (expressed in past tense). The way you format or color your story plan is up to you. I did mine this way because it's a perfect fit to adhere to the back page of my planner and I love ORANGE.

Why blog? Again?

Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again? Why am I blogging again?

Only acceptable answers:

To have fun.

To think through things through writing about them.

To contribute.

To share what fascinates me.

That is all. I just deleted the bloated paragraph I'd written about the glory days of blogging because it was all blah, blah, blah.

This is not me; she's way cooler.

How to Have a More Misadventurous Life: And Why You Should

Welcome to my new weblog!

I hope you'll find this a welcome place for entertainment, inspiration, or to plan your great day or week.

Why this blog?

Most people love stories with twists, near misses, conflict, and flawed heroes—in fiction and real life.

Whether we’re chatting it up at a family reunion, reconnecting with a friend, or reflecting on our lives, the stories we recall are often those where things went seriously sideways.  The times we nearly failed or did something we didn’t know was possible. We triumphed, or quasi-triumphed, through grit and a healthy dose of devil-may-care attitude. We played full out.

Why now?

Reflecting on crazy but true stories can be fun, but we have the opportunity to look forward and be more deliberate about the stories we choose to play a starring role in. By learning and practicing several life hacks, we can live a more misadventurous life.

Why me?

I want to have a more misadventurous life and I'd love to help you generate more memorable stories, too. And it's fun to write about this stuff! Better than documenting the health benefits of flossing our teeth...hehehe.
