While undigging from the vacation backlog, I peaked into a BaseCamp account I’m using for a handful of projects and received this message:
Uh. Um. Well. Guess I’ll just toss that To Do list into the trash and head for the beach.
On a related note – while going for my daily walk last Thursday (just happened to be around residential Brussels) I listened to Tim Coyne’s UNKEMPT #12 – Plans.
In it, he digs into a fear I’ve faced head-on more than a couple of times: being responsible for another person’s well-being. Doesn’t matter if this is a partner or a child. The stakes get higher when there’s someone else “riding on your scooter” as Tim puts it.
From my perspective – the good stuff happens on the other side of the fear. There’s something motivating about that obligation.
Hey Tim, metaphorically speaking – maybe it’s time to ditch the scooter. 😉
As always, Tim talks about this fear honestly and openly, if you haven’t given these a listen yet – you should.
