You can talk about it. You can dream about it. You can even recommend it to others. But can you LIVE it?
I hope so. I think so. Maybe. Fine, okay…
Once again, I have entered the ranks of the unemployed…by choice. After three wonderful years of working and growing in a job with terrific people, it is time to move on. It became very clear that the only way to live the life I wanted to live…is to actually live it.
30 Days of YES is about helping people live their purpose – they’re YES! It is about bringing full attention and intention to everything you do – and to be mindfully in the moment.
From day one of beginning this little idea called 30 Days of YES, I knew this is what I wanted to do. It wasn’t a fun project, hobby, or something to work on in my free-time. This is my calling!
Peter Block wrote a whole book around the premise, The Answer to How is Yes.
It is time I follow my own advice and do the same. I don’t know “how” this is going to evolve and develop. But I do know the power in saying YES to the things in life that inspire and invoke in us our passion and purpose. I am not even concerned with what it is going to look like because I know that following this intention will lead me directly to where I need to be…in that moment…this moment.
I quit my job, and said YES to my purpose.
I no longer have a home. I don’t have a permanent address. If you need to send me something, e-mail me first
My wife and I have desired being able to take our kids on a trip across the country to give them the experience classrooms can’t provide. We said YES to this idea long before we knew HOW it could happen. The HOW is always the details…the doubt…the fear. The HOW sucks away your energy and convinces you “It can’t be done!” The HOW is a dream killer.
YES sets you free. We still don’t know all of the details to how our road trip is going to work, but the gaps are beginning to fill in. Friends have offered their homes. We bought a 9 person tent on clearance, so now we can sleep in your backyard…seriously
Come September the Thomas Party of 5 will be hitting the road. I am looking for people to interview along the way so that I can share their YES stories. If you know someone I should talk to – please be in touch. If you have a backyard that fits a 9 person tent – also look me up.
If you are ready to say YES to yourself, instead of giving in to your HOW…check out 30 Days of YES: 101 and 30 Days of YES: Fitness. Both programs begin July 1st – and both programs just might transform your life.
Are you ready to say YES?
