If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.

I love this quote by Yogi Berra. I use it a lot in my “day job” because I’m a strategy consultant…constantly driving the point home to my clients that there needs to be, if not a comprehensive multi-level plan, then at least a basic road map.
What if, for once, I don’t have to decide upfront where I want the “someplace else” to be? I had no idea what to really expect when I took on this challenge. My only thought was to jump, because I wasn’t afraid of the risk. So, I think, ending up someplace else is exactly what will happen because it won’t be where I currently am…and it’s okay that I haven’t really decided what that looks like.
When I first started my blog in October, I thought I had a plan. I planned to post weekly: well thought out and hopefully well composed stories about the things I learned through life’s double-dog-dares.
Then the challenge hit and the plan had to change
Unbeknownst to me, this challenge seems to have a Dare-a-Day built into it and I never know what it’s going to be. So far these have been my dares….
Day 1: Jump into the fray
Day 2: Build a habit and not immediately quit
Day 3: Get past needing a perfectly thought-out story
Day 4: Stay open to each day’s new dare
So, fellow bloggers what have your dares and hurdles been as a blogger (this challenge or otherwise)? And how did you handle the dare?
