Why a map is important-Know your A to B

We’re all pilgrims on the same journey – but some pilgrims have better road maps.
Nelson DeMille

The best memories I have from when I was a little kid was all the trips we took with the family. My dad Lars was the “captain of the ship” and he made sure we understood, before “leaving the shore”, where we were headed and how long it  would take to get there.

He, like the true captain he his, spread the map across the kitchen table and said: “Ok kids, where are we?” Me and my brother raised to put our fingers on the right spot on the map. We didn’t always get it right but at least we were enthusiastic about it. “Ok great, and were are we going?” This was a little bit trickier but we made our best guess and pointed proudly on a spot on the map. “yes, almost but we are going here” our father said as he gently pulled one of our fingers to the right place on the map.

He further told us how long it would take to get there. He also pointed out approximately were we would make stops to eat our lunch etc. So, when our journey started we knew fairly well how long it would take, when we could eat our lunch and take a bathroom break. Of course, bathroom breaks were always more frequent then infrequent, but hey, we were kids with a deep love for juice:)

Yes, I think you know were I’m going with this. Just like my dad planned our journeys when I was a kid showing us the map before driving towards our destination, it can be a great help for us to look at the map before each day and see were we are going. Yes, the work day is usually already planned out as 9-5 so there is little we can do about that but how are we planning our free time? Do we have a map for the hours from 5-11?

Let us discover how we can optimize these hours!

This and more in tomorrows post. For now, start thinking around the concept of having a map. See what comes to mind and smile!

Plan your journey-plan your day!

I´m going to start this blog with telling you something amazing. Its something that will revolutionize your way of thinking about planning your life. It will alternate your view on your journey in general and shift your awareness and rock you to the core. I hope you are sitting down because this will blow your mind. It blew mine, Are you ready? Here we go. 1, 2, 3…

You have 24 hours per day! Yes, you read me correctly, you HAVE 24 hours per day!

Ok, I admit it, I was trying to draw you in by opening up with an amazing claim but I did that purposefully to make a point. We all know that we have 24 hours a day to plan with and we all know that those 24 hours are gone when the clock hits twelve. The question is, are we planning with them? Do we see them as the pot of gold that they are?

Every night at the same time you are given a new set of hours to plan with and with them a new opportunity to plan them as well as you can. The question is: Are we?

This will be the red thread of this blog. I will share how to optimize our free time, work-outs and how planning your day is the most important task of your day.

I will share ideas that I have come up with and I will also share ideas that I have read or heard other people put forth that I find highly inspiring. Together we can plan your journey, become more effective and use every hour to our advantage!

I wish you all a successful 2012!
