Go Do It!

Where do you want to go?  What do you want to do?  What is standing in your way?  What is holding you back?  

Time - a lot of us think time is standing in our way.  Guess what we all have the same amount of time.  The demands on our time, always exceed the time that is available.  Everyday, we let things slip, so that other things get done.  The difference between those who go and do what they want to do, and those who don't, is making different decisions about what you are not going to do, or are going to spend less time doing today.  Many of us fear that if we work fewer hours, either our work will not get done, or our employers will decide they don't need us.  Through my medical adventures back in May - July of 2015, I learned that the office didn't stop getting work done when I was not there, and at the end they were very glad to have me back - they kept saying things like, I didn't really understand what you did, until I tried to do it.  

Money - I tend to travel cheap - travel is a priority for me - I drive a lesser car - I fly more and stay in nicer hotels - I am a bargain shopper on clothes - I find fun adventures along the way.  I leverage frequent traveler programs for free or reduced cost air travel, free and reduced price hotel rooms.  I focus nearly all of my travel on two airlines, and two hotel groups.  I use credit cards that earn me extra frequent flyer or hotel points.    

What is standing in the way of you next adventure?  What choices can you make to make the adventure happen?

  1. Standing in my way today is shoulder pain. I sure hope this surgery recovers soon, it's been 6 months today. I have to figure out how to get past this. I do fly out to Ft Lauderdale tomorrow in a First class round trip seat since this is my birthday trip to my favorite men's resort near the beach. I've started buying more first class seats of recent, the space is worth the cost for me these days. I use one airline in order to maintain platinum status.
