There Are Patterns In Everything

Last week I noticed the patterns in the world around me.There were lines and circles. Spots and specks. Everything is made up of something. It tells its own story.

Color in Some Spaces

Remember that maps are designed to tell where things are. A map gives you an idea of the distance between one thing and another. It also tells you of all the possibilities.

Color in the spaces on your map by putting your feet into action. Go places and learn what it has to offer. One of the things I love about traveling the US is the rich history of each location. Every place has it’s own story to tell.

Part of this journey is making those stories your own. I still have 15 states out of the 50 to see visit. Many of those states are in the great northwest. I look forward to the adventure.

Map Something Out

When you are going somewhere, map something out so that you will have a sense of where you are going. A map will give you a landscape of what you will encounter on the way so that there are no big surprises.  It will also tell you how you will travel and how much ground you will cover.

When I start fleshing out an idea, I map it out. Since I am a visual person, there are little shapes here that hold small ideas and big shapes there that hold big ideas. The whole thing will become my response to the journey that I am on.

Your map doesn’t have to look like everyone else. It just has to tell you the information you need when you need it. It can be a representation of items to remind you what you need to do.

It can show where you start and how far you have gone.   It will give you a visual representation of your journey also reminding you of what you have been through. Sometimes at the end of the year, we review our progress and it doesn’t seem like we have done much.  It may seem like we stay in the same place for a long time, but we forget about the times we go up high mountains or down to deep valleys. We should account for those times and think about what we learned in the process.
