Life without a deadline

woman on loading dock piled high with boxes
Everything we owned in 1984 fit into a bunch of boxes. We had no deadline to be in Florida by a certain date.

A well-lived, intentional life is a life without deadlines.

Who’s driving?

Once you taste freedom, you will never again be employable. WFAA: work from anywhere anytime.

Your calendar drives you or you drive your calendar.

The new you is better

Our high-mountain HQ in lower middle. To start before sunrise already at 6,600′ is superior to starting at 3,200′, minimum hour drive, and minimum multi-hours hike to get here.

Over-managing and micromanaging are polar opposites. Over-managing is about being intentional where you used to be unintentional.

Keep it to yourself

boy on a pogo stick
Two choices: (1) Jump for joy after you do it. (2) Jump for joy by announcing you’re going to do it. Photo: Me, 10 years old, at cousin’s house.

There’s a sense of accomplishment simply from announcing you are going to do something, like write a book. Announcing is a procrastinator’s miracle drug. Nothing has been accomplished but it feels like a big step has been made. Keep it to yourself and do the work first, then announce your results.
