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).
