The Challenge: 365 Days of Discovery – Who am I?

Posted on Updated on

How often do we take the time to truly understand who we are and what we want from life? Some of us more than others, but in general, we exert very little energy and patience devoted to truly touching the surface of each component of our existence.

And so… perhaps because I turn 40 this week… or maybe it’s finding a plethora of free time on my hands… or by chance it’s that my mind is more relaxed and open these days… I am putting forth a challenge to myself:

365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life. I will post a characteristic about myself and reflect on it in a blog post for the next 365 days: a full year of discovery into directing the course of my future.

I suppose some could find this indulgent. Believe I am just talking about myself for the sake of hearing myself talk. But it’s not about hearing; it’s about listening. I intend to cover the good and the bad. The areas I excel and the areas I need help.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor.

When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life.

All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man.

Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

And fair for all to comment. Let click to the first post.

      Thank you! I have the first few in mind… but I want each one to spark from pure creativity and in-the-moment discovery.
