This is a 52 question Countdown, I got the idea from a NY Times Article that says it only takes 36 questions to fall in love. This weeks question:
Is there something that you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it?
"Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.;" (John Greenleaf Whittier)
It has been said that a dream is a wish your heart makes. But a dream is only a dream if you don't act on it. I am blessed, I have a career that teaches me how to plan unimaginably impossible and complex goals, and to break them down into achievable accomplishments. So when I tell you that it is my dream to have a Zeppelin R/V like the old man on Up and travel the world. The reason I haven't done it yet isn't because it's impossible… it's because I'm doing the tasks that lead up to that goal.
The dream to fly … wasn't impossible, it was just something that took a little time, same with photography, same with a degree in the first place.
Here are some of my dreams, that I've had for a long time, and why I haven't done it yet:
- Write a book – This is in process, but not in quick process, between my many priorities, it's not highest on the list. I look forward to the time when I have more time, but this goal doesn't feed into my other goals enough to be a higher priority.
- Build a Home Recording Studio – First I did all the research for this, then I decided that before I do this, I need to be able to play music with myself when I sing.
- Learn Guitar – In process and it feeds into building a home recording studio.
- Create a business – In progress, there are many sub-elements to the business I'm growing, and each one is being handled.
What are some of the things you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it?
