Tools needed to find your path.
Welcome to our Find Your Path In Life Series. Get out your opposable thumbs and create the life you dream of! Doug and I are doing it, and you can join us on the journey. Throw yourself into the exercises and thought gymnastics that we present, and figure out what you really want from life.
Do you visualize a brick wall when you wonder, “What am I going to do for a living?”, or “Now what?” ? Don’t worry, we did too. I had brick imprints on my forehead until we discovered our inner monkey sense.
These posts are written as step by step exercises. Start with number one and proceed from there. See? It’s easy! Read our ramblings, look at our example work and then read the exercise at the end of each post. Write down whatever the exercise suggests. Study your own writings. You’ll be surprised at the insight you’ll gain when you allow yourself to write things out. Words become reality.
Doug and I are striking out on our own. We’re asking tough questions of ourselves, and sharing the answers. We’ll give you the framework to ask yourself the same questions, and gain insight into what will make you content.
Come on, grab a machete and clear away some mental brush. We’ll provide the sledgehammer later, once you find the brick wall…
Define your “youhood”. Get to know the real you. Find monkey contentment. Who knows, you may even smile…
Save your exercises. We’re going to build up a body of your own writings and musings that will direct you towards happiness and monkey contentment!
