100 Day Challenge - Day 54 - The Plank Was Walked

Yesterday I asked my boss if I could take 6 months off work from 1 Jan 2010. He agreed.

If all goes well and I can build an online income stream, I am hoping not to go back to work at all.

Sometime next year I will be living my perfect day.

What am I going to do in those 6 months?
Write a book. Or an ebook. Write poetry and publish it on the web. Create interesting, lovely or funny videos, put them on You Tube. Be passionate. Write a web app that will solve a problem in people’s lives. Become a watchdog to replace the faltering newspapers. Explore the world, and blog about it. Try something you’ve always been afraid to try, and put it on video. Be yourself, loudly. Start a new company, doing only one thing, but doing it very well. Start a business that does a service you’ve always wanted, or that you are frustrated with in other companies because the service sucks. Put your heart into something. Say something that no one else dares to say. Do something others are afraid to do. Help someone no one else cares to help. Make the lives of others better. Make music that makes others want to weep, to laugh, to create. Inspire others by being inspiring. Teach young people to do amazing things. Write a play, get others to act in it, record it. Empower others to do things they’ve never been able to do before. Read, and read, and then write. Love, and love, and then help others to love. Do something good and ask others to pass it on. Be profound. Find focus in a world without it. Become minimalist in a world of dizzying complexity. Reach out to those who are frustrated, depressed, angry, confused, sad, hurt. Be the voice for those without one. Learn, do, then teach. Meet new people, become fast friends. Dare to be wrong. Take lots and lots of pictures. Explore new cultures. Be different. Paint a huge mural. Create a web comic. Be a dork, but do it boldly. Interview people. Observe people. Create new clothes. Take old stuff and make new stuff from it. Read weird stuff. Study the greats, and emulate them. Be interested in others. Surprise people. Start a blog, write at least a little each day. Cook great food, and share it. Be open-minded. Help someone else start a small business. Focus on less but do it better. Help others achieve their dreams. Put a smile on someone’s face, every day. Start an open-source project. Make a podcast. Start a movement. Be brave. Be honest. Be hilarious. Get really, really good at something. Practice a lot. A lot. Start now. Try.

  1. Awesome stuff Katie, I can't wait to see where you go with this.

  2. Yay for you. I'm so excited and happy for you. I only said to myself earlier today "when one door closes, another one opens". Tell you later.

    I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  4. That's great Katie, you are talented your perfect life is starting already!!

  5. Go KatieP! That takes a lot of intestinal fortitude (guts) to do that. What a wonderful position you are in your life to be able to do that - I mean 'head space' really, I know nothing about the rest of your life!

    You will be walking the plank big time. Congratulations, I sorta know where you've come from from another forum and think it's mind blowing. I don't think you know how much of an inspiration you are to me and many others, or perhaps you do, I hope you do.

    My journey is taking a lot longer but it goes to show that you can be so similar in some ways (height, start weight at the beginning etc) but the head is where it is at. If you are not in the right headspace, nothing will happen, perhaps that's the biggest challenge, changing your headspace and believing.

    Hope one day soon I will be in Sydney and able to actually meet. Erika

  6. @Liz - I can wait to see either!

    @Shelley - I'm excited too

    @Patricia - thanks for stopping by and welcome ♥

    @Cathy - how fantastic it is that we can create any future (and present) that we want

    @Erika - You know, you are probably the person who has 'known' me for the longest time in cyberspace - I appreciate your support so much. I agree that headspace is everything. Come to Sydney soon, I can't wait to meet you in person.
