As I write, we're in the car heading up to Whistler to do some skiing. We're talking about the fact that we're (already!) at the end of another year Because we're big dreamers and plotters, we always like to take a look at what's been going on and to ponder what's ahead. The last couple of years have been like no other, and we hope to further fine tune things in 2010. We've transformed our world in a major way so that we're living a life that is in sync with what's most important to us. No more waiting for "the right time" because that, too often, means never.
So, in 2010, we remain most interested in living authentically - seeing the world, exploring how we're all connected and making a living doing something we love along the way. Thinking freely and living deliberately help us to stay focused on what's most important rather than buying into templated notions of life that don't fit. We're lucky to have family and friends who offer support and don't think we're completely out of our minds.
2008 and 2009 have been all about building our business in the interest of pursuing our "perfect" life. Working virtually allowed us to be away from our Seattle home base for more than 16 weeks in 2009. During that time, we remained available for work 99% of the time - even on a ship in the middle of the ocean.
Before we embrace 2010 with a vengeance, we're going to go off the grid for a few days over the new year holiday. We'll be taking some time away WITHOUT being available for work. If 2010 is going to be even better than 2009, we need to rest up and recharge.
