Tackle Them One At A Time
No More Than Three Criteria Per Item
In this series, we’re going to walk through what I’ve learned creating my life situation. I’m going to share how I ticked the boxes on each of those items.
You’ll learn my criteria for each aspect of my life. I hope this helps you build your own.
One of the things that differentiates my approach, I know exactly what I am seeking…
Kids & Family
Clarity Enables Consistent Action
Clarity also enables:
Decisive action when opportunity presents itself.
Comfort with the endless “no thank you’s.”
The wisdom to yield (on everything else).
The ability to understand what motivates others.
Dealing With Dead Ends
One of the replies, to my tweet on retirement, was an observation that not all jobs are suited to part-time work.
From 1990-2000, I worked in one of those jobs.
I loved it.
I plotted my escape.
You are in the wrong place.
Your current life is not a good fit.
You dislike your status quo.
Very useful information. Start planning your escape.1
As a young person, it is more common to discover where we don’t fit, what we dislike, how we don’t want to be… opposition seems to be hardwired into us.
Find Your Fit
Finding My Fit took a decade.
First I had to leave my old life, my old habits behind.
Two years later, I won Ultraman Hawaii.
Five years later, I was married to a kind, gorgeous, professional athlete.
Eight years later, I was living in a new country working as a triathlon coach.
So if you think you’re on the wrong path then congratulations.
You have important knowledge.
Dead End Habits
My job wasn’t my issue.
My issue was me.
Constant external dissatisfaction has an internal cause.
Sure, my career, my location, my peers… were not a good fit.
Everything external can be changed - with effort, over time.
I had been changing locations, jobs, peers… regularly since my teens.
My way of seeing the world, my habits and how I interacted with other people… I was holding myself back.
Without addressing the internal issues, I would have ended up the same guy in a different location.
Each of us, needs to make it happen for ourselves.
