I’ve spent some months thinking about what I want to do when I grow up and where (and how) I would like to live. The result is three main goals, two old but rephrased and one new. I’m sticking my head out by posting my goals here but it’s good for me to be able to go back and look at them when things go slow.
I posted about My 3 Words for 2011 and two of my three goals can be connected back to them.
Connect and Interact
Connect goes inwards (connect to my inner self) as well as outwards (connect to more people in real life and virtually). Together we can achieve much more.
Interact is defined in a glossary as “act in such a way as to have an effect on another.” To me it translates into being visible and valuable. I include creating relationships and to collaborate. Learn and share are other activities under this goal.
I intend to communicate more, online and offline. That means more talking, writing and taking part in discussions.
When it comes to writing I have set a goal of writing at least 200 words five days a week. I’m aware of that it’s a low word count, my primary goal is to create a writing habit that sticks. Then I’ll raise by a hundred words at a time up to 500 words each day I write. I intend to post at least weekly in each of my blogs (see below) and also intend to start writing on that book of mine.
Become location independent
There are a bunch of hurdles, some of them big, before making location independence a reality but it’s lifted to a goal of mine.
Location independent living
So far I have lived most of my life in and around Helsingborg. Things have changed in my life lately and it no longer has to stay that way. I love Helsingborg but there are many more places where I would love to stay. Becoming a true nomad (a person with no settled home) feels like a huge step for me. I’ll most likely aim for a base and then stay for shorter or longer periods elsewhere.
Location independent work
This is more a change of mindset. Writing can be done anywhere, no one – me included – care where it’s done. Client sessions are a bit different. Meeting face to face rules but virtual meetings create results too. Internet makes virtual meetings possible and easy, regardless of where the client and I are located.
