The Fools Journey

Every journey is a Fools Journey. Entrepreneurship is a Fools Journey. Trying to scale the Corporate Ladder it is Fools Journey. Frodo embarks himself into a Fools Journey. Luke Skywalker also did. Have you?

A Fool according to the dictionary it is:
a person who acts unwisely or imprudently; a silly person

The issue here is what defines “unwisely or imprudently”. Anything that defies the status quo (and some even will argue that everything that doesn’t defy that same status quo) is a Fools Journey.

Write the book. Create a Seminar. Code the Software. Pick the phone. Ignore the phone. Follow the call.

History is full of Fools. Those that were incredibly successful and those that fail miserably. What makes the Fools journey worst? Taking it and failing on every attempt or not taking it and failed by default?

I have done both, I have taken the Fools Journey and failed in every attempt (or learn how not to do things in every attempt as Tomas Alva Edison will say about the lightbulb) and not taking it and failed by default. Without a doubt, the first option was better. The failure tastes different.

I have written (as if others want to read what I have to say), I have taught (as if you have, the knowledge that others need), I have created and record Podcasts (as if others are interested in listening to the things I have to say), I have helped others (that you are assuming need my help).

All those things are part of my Fools Journey and the reality is that every time I have to embark into that Fool Journey, every time I have written, teach, create or record a podcast or helped someone, even when I have failed miserably the results had been simply fantastic and incredible.

This is not a normal April Fools Day. Today it is April Fools Day on the Year 2020 and as others have mentioned, you may get a different o kind of clarity, a 2020 vision on your Fools Journeys.

Use this time to leave the farm behind as Luke Skywalker did. The stormtroopers may come tomorrow and exterminate everything. Use this time to move forward on your Fools Journey.

Write (as your words may reach someone that wants to read them). Teach (as you have knowledge that others need). Created and Record Podcasts (as others may be interested in listening to the things I have to say). Help Others (because you do not know who may need your help).

Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP) Wednesday Night Edition #7 (01-08-2020)

We are GTDers looking for greater accountability to setting aside time to perform our Weekly Reviews. This is a weekly event where you can join other GTDers who are doing their Weekly Reviews.

Also, check out this episode of ProductivityCast, Episode 045, “Weekly Review: Getting Things Done (GTD),” via https://productivitycast.net/045 or your favorite podcast app!

Rules:

1) Show up at the time of the Weekly Review Accountability Party (WRAP). We use Google Meet (https://meet.google.com/dre-rswh-cyi), a video meeting application, to host this WRAP; you need to use the link provided bellow to connect with the group…it’s free for you to do so.

2) Start your video, say hello to the group, mix and mingle before we all get started.

I suggest, if you haven’t done so before, complete the GTD-Q to know where you are at: https://gettingthingsdone.com/gtd-q/. (I do this before every Weekly Review to help me track how well my system is keeping me in the C&C quadrant. You may not wish to do this weekly; that’s OK.)

I will walk everyone through a quick introduction of the Weekly Review, we’ll introduce ourselves briefly, and then I’ll mute everyone’s microphones.

3) Start your Weekly Review. Please stay muted as not to distract others, but stay on video for accountability.

We allot two hours for the event, but some will do their Weekly Review in more time, some in less time. If we get to two hours and you’re still working on your Weekly Review, that’s fine. The host will end the Zoom, but you should keep going to complete yours!

Is Resistance having the best of you?

I found the Resistance concept (yes, Resistance with capital R) the first time on the book TheWar of Art of Steve Pressfield and I have been fascinated by it for the longest time.
Also for the longest time, Resistance has been getting a lot of times the best of me. I am a Writer. Yes, I do a lot more things that just write. I am a Business Development Professional and a Best Selling Author that enjoys Connecting Invisible Dots for People and Organizations. That’s a long title, but it is what I do.
I wish to tell you that I battle with Resistance only on my writings, but the reality is that I battle against resistance in everything I do. Resistance is Self-Sabotage at his best.
Resistance has had the best of this blog. Resistance has had the best of my next book. Resistance has had the best of me many times.
The Good news is that you can try again and by trying again you may have a chance to beat Resistance at least today.
Today I beat you! See you tomorrow.
