Day 15 of #Trust30 – One Thing by Colin Wright

Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Take a moment, step back from your concerns, and focus on one thing: You have one life to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted. Sounds simple, but when you really focus on it, let it seep into your consciousness, you realize you only have about 100 years to get every single thing you’ve ever wanted to do. No second chances. This is your only shot. Suddenly, this means you should have started yesterday. No more waiting for permission or resources to start. Today is the day you make the rest of your life happen. Write down one thing you’ve always wanted to do and how you will achieve that goal. Don’t be afraid to be very specific in how you’ll achieve it: once you start achieving, your goals will get bigger and your capability to meet them will grow.

I’m going to take a break from the “what I want to be when I grow up” post and just say that one of my lifetime goals is to travel more.

This might be an understatement of the year, but there are so many amazing and beautiful places to see and I want to see as many as I can.  We took a family vacation last year with the kiddos making stops in San Francisco, a week in Hawaii (for a wedding) and Colorado Springs on the way home.  Two weeks of travel with the kids and it was awesome.

I saw the looks we got when we got on the plane with a 1 1/2 year-old and a 6 year-old and those people didn’t hear a peep out of my kids, well maybe some laughing…the most annoying thing on the plane was a little dog under the seat behind us that whined all the way from Honolulu to Denver.

I love visiting new places, dumping our luggage in the hotel and setting out for exploration.  I love not really having an agenda or a destination in mind.  I love to just roam.

So, how am I going to meet my goal of traveling?  Hmmmm….that whole work thing would have to slip in here.

My plan?  To work my ass off.
