a josh technique

we were sitting around talking of where he wanted to go,
what he wanted to do and josh pulled out what he called
one of his favorite pieces of advice.

i was curious. what would it be.
turned out i had never heard it before.
and turned out the timing was really good for me as well.

i'll be workin' on trying this, so i thought i'd share it here too!

he called it something like 'the nine lives technique.'
something like that.

if you're trying to figure out what you want to do, where you want
to go....what you want to be when you grow up (which many of us
try to figure out for a long long long time....) you write out nine
different scenarios of dream lives you'd like.

the idea is that if you try to do just one, you're gonna get stuck,
and locked in, worried about picking just the right thing.
but if you roll with nine, you can really get to free flowing.and
different things will repeat, themes will come out, and you can
see a whole lot when you look at them all together.

i thought that was such a great idea!

i'm thinking i may be sitting down trying it and so i thought i'd
toss it here for others to play with!

thank you, josh!
