Everybody needs a plan. Heck, even Scooby Doo and the gang had a plan to catch the evil ghost. Everybody in the group had a role and together they made it, maybe not exactly as they thought they would, but in the end they caught the bad guy. So, let’s plan to make a plan. This means we hafta ask some questions.
- What? What do you wanna do? Dare I even ask? What can you accomplish? The answer is simple and yet extremely difficult. What are you good at? Drawing? Writing? Helping people? Think about it and listen to your heart. Look for that thing you LOVE to do.
- Here’s a no brainer question. When? The simple answer. NOW. The complex answer. NOW. Which leads to…
- How? Get started. Work toward your goal. Research, Google is your friend. You like to draw? Take lessons. Read artsy books. Study the legends. Copycat the legends. You want to write? Dude, you gotta read. You hafta write every single day, whether you feel like it or not. Take a course. Find a mentor. Start a project and finish it! You want to help people? Research. Go back to college. Study hard. Became a social worker. Volunteer at nursing homes. Do something every day to get you closer to your goal.
- Another no-brainer. Why? Why not? You want to be happy. You want to be you. To make money. To help others. Look deeply into your life and if you feel the need to make a change. Do it. Do it for yourself.
Be true to yourself.
