My Plan for 2014
I’ve never publicly posted anything like this because despite seeming extroverted to the untrained eye, I’m quite the introvert. I’m really private…and “I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my shit.”
Anyway, this year, I’ve decided to take my writing in a new direction which warrants me being more transparent. That new direction involves more ME. I’ve spent a lot of time writing in an authoritative tone about a lot of things – business, women’s issues, social change, etc – for various publications.
Now I’m ready to talk more about myself, my life, things that interest me, and what I’m working on. People give me the impression that they think I’m hiding or being secretive. That’s not the case.
So here’s the low down on this year:
Last year was a rocket ride. So many totally unexpected things happened (good and not-so-good) that I finished 2013 catching my breath and trying to figure out what I wanted to do this year.
I have 2 primary overarching goals:
- Swing for the fences.
2. Stay open…to new and unexpected people, places, things, and ideas.
Like any good personal development junkie, I have goals. But this year, it’s not as much about the goals themselves as much as it is about becoming who I’m meant to be.
I’m currently reading Mastery by Robert Greene and in the book, he details the winding journeys of masters. They frequently go through these meandering periods where they’re learning various disciplines, having a variety of experiences, and wandering through life.
But not all who wander are lost.
To the untrained eye, I’ve wandered. But really, I’ve explored. I’ve been curious about the world and people and life. And that has given me a unique perspective on things and refined my raw talents.
So now I feel better equipped to go after the things I want and build things I believe in.
All in all, I’m excited about 2014 and ready to do what I do best: make moves and make magic.
