Sailing with our family over the holidays brings our WHY into clear focus, solidifying why our decision to explore opportunities that bring time freedom back into our lives was the right one…why finding the time to bring new experiences into the lives of our children was the best one…and why taking our work (if you can call it that) with us wherever we go, from writing a blog post on our tablet from the cockpit of our sailboat, inter-connected to the online cloud, was the perfect choice. As we reflect on our lives at the end of this year, and as we anxiously await all of the exciting and new avenues we will explore into the new year, we look forward to sharing what we have learned as we grow our "sea-legs" in the new frontiers of the online world.
Finding your true Why, your true North, requires a lot of self-examination. Realizing what is important to you…figuring out what you want to accomplish in the time you have - and you really don't know how much time that really is - means starting to focus in on what really matters to you. Is it spending time with your kids when they're at the age of discovery and wonder? Is it exploring places that you were always curious about, both across town or across the globe? Is it helping the world one person at a time, or simply getting to know the world, one person at a time?
Remember that sailing your life's Why is a journey - it's your journey. It is a trip worth sharing with others, you will be surprised at how interested others might be about your travels! Go ahead and share it, write a blog, or share your experiences with us. We would love to hear about it. Just imagine yourself in a rocking chair on your front porch at 100 looking back at your Life. Imagine yourself having no regrets on the road you've taken. Just imagine how you'll just close your eyes and smile.
Until next time…
Scott and Heidi
