Pragmatic Technologies for Life and Business Success®
Whenever I travel, I’m always looking for something adventurous to do: climb mountains, find the best view of the sunset, explore local gardens. Even when I’m at home, I seek out adventure in my everyday life. This “adventure mindset” has led me down unbeaten paths to extraordinary experiences—both in my personal life, and in my business.
What kind of adventures are you creating in your own world?
Without adventure, life can quickly become boring, and we start to become complacent. Creating adventure—seeking out new and different experiences—is what gives meaning and excitement to our lives and businesses. Just yesterday, I took an early morning flight to Phoenix and headed straight to the city’s beautiful botanical gardens. I spent the day photographing exotic plants and gorgeous scenery, seeing things I never had before. Instead, I could have been relaxing at my hotel —but where’s the adventure in that? These found moments of discovering something new are what make life worth living.
The same is true for your business. While being adventurous at work won’t always yield amazing results, it’s always worthwhile to get out of your comfort zone. Otherwise, your business is sure to become stagnant. Just think of the great innovators who have changed the course of humanity over the centuries—Edison, Archimedes, Galileo—all people with an adventure mindset who were never content with the status quo.
You might not be inventing the first light bulb, but your adventures can still have a powerful, lasting impact on your own life and business, your family, friends, and customers. To adopt an adventure mindset, try asking yourself the following 5 questions:
Remember, adventures are the key to staying excited about life and business. Without it, the creative spark fades just a little more with every year that passes by. Don’t be afraid to chart new adventures that might lead nowhere. They’ll eventually lead you to the greatest adventures of all.
Are you creating adventures in your life and business? It’s time to start pushing the boundaries and expanding the landscape of your life and work.
