When you know what’s next . . .

Our first step begins on an azimuth.

Yep! We’re striking out in a direction towards something.

So . . . who determines this azimuth if not we?

With each ensuing step, fear of the unknown begins to surface leading to worry – a trepidation that can stop even the most stalwart of travelers as realization sets in that each step takes us further from our origin – that place we were standing prior to taking that first step.


At what point will we cross that line of demarcation – the point of no return?

We try our best to strategize and plan and develop work flows so as to more accurately predict what’s to come.

Try as we might, always in the back of our consciousness there’s this twinge of uncertainty.

OMG! What will happen if we go all this effort, and things don’t pan out as we expected?

How embarrassing to FAIL for all of our friends, family, and associates to witness, right?

Faith takes the reigns, and we continue forward.

So . . . the truth . . . We do not and cannot with certainty KNOW what’s next (Just ask Donald & Hillary).

It’s that first step’s fault and the simple little premise that we were born to travel a Hero’s Journey for all the days of our lives.

Oh yes and Murphy who has consistently reminded us that almost nothing of significance happens according to the plan.

Yet we continue forth.

Initially, this post was about the life of an entrepreneur.

Half way through, it dawned on me that this is about all people who have chosen to follow their hearts (Passion) – consistently show up and are present in all things that matter to them – are committed to being truthful to themselves and others, and let go without judgement.

YOU are one of these people!

I’m proud of you!

Happy trails!
