A pattern of behaviour that has become dull, unproductive, and undesirable but it is extremely tough to change.
Have you ever woke up and fancied doing something but you can't yet because you have to do something else. Getting out of bed to see the day each morning can be an uphill struggle from the start sometimes.
Every morning you have a set routine that you have no choice but to follow. You can tend to feel a sense of doom! You get through the day surprisingly well and fast. You feel a sense of achievement but it's almost bed time already and tomorrows another day that's already been mapped out for you.
Time passes by fast when you're busy. 3 months pass by and you haven't had time to spend quality time with yourself let alone loved ones. I ask myself this. Is this really what life is all about?
My days of the rut started back in my early school days. 20 years later and every now and then I have to remind myself how to avoid getting caught up in a rut. It's natural to fall into a rut. It's a natural process to get out of one.
My Model for escaping the rut
Picture what you want...
Picture how your going to get it...
What's the first thing you need to do...
What's your deadline...
Feeling progress? See progress?
Feeling complete? Getting things done?
Evaluate these steps. Missing anything?
Repeat this model until I can find a more effective way.
Never lose sight of what's important!
I want adventure! I'm a free spirit.
Short Term Wants- I will build my passion around it and build a team that can help me become mobile. I will jot ideas of ideal environments today and advertise job vacancies. I will continue moving with this plan being agile to review it over the next week. I believe it's achievable to have mobility for adventure within the next 3 weeks. I want a holiday to look forward to with my family! Especially with my nan who does so much for us and deserves a break.
Mid Term Wants- I want to run a fitness competition type event. I love being creative and competition events. The atmosphere is exciting!
Long Term Wants- I really desire to set up a fitness retreat in Florida on my favourite beach Tampa Bay. I fell in love with Tampa Bay when I went there with my beautiful wife Alice and my special inlaws. I desire to be in a position to be free of financial concern and to build a legacy with my family. I have a really unique mind. I want to make the fitness industry an honest one and free ordinary people of scare mongerers. One day my business could be collosal and branching out into the theme park world! Ever since I was a little one I dreamed of having my own zoo and I have always been fascinated by museums and theme park shows like the ones at Disney. Maybe I'll put something special together to celebrate how amazing the world can be and inspire billions around the world. Who knows? I'm unique after all.
Note; My key word is want, I don't need to achieve these goals. I think I already have everything I need. I could learn to be more self efficient that way I wouldn't have as much pressure to earn money. Money wouldn't be a need if I could survive without it.
Work in Progress,
