Today I've been trying to sit down and de-clutter the jumble of goals and aims that are currently "stored" in my mind. I set down some of my goals for the coming year... ( a lot of these have now rolled on from last year!!) oops... ;) I thought I'd attempt some mind-mapping, I was never particularly good at images and flowcharts - always preferred Lists and numbers more. However, I persevered and it is amazing what your mind can achieve when you let it loose.
Now in front of me I have a simple A4 page showing "Financial Freedom" in the middle, with lots of different lines sticking out with all my ideas of how I want to achieve that. I don't know if I will ever actually get a chance to do all those projects and implement all those ideas, but now they are there as a point of reference, and I can start thinking a bit more clearly.
My next aim is to sort out my bookmark folder into categories so at least I can find what I need when I need it! However, a job better left till the morning I think ;)

Hello! Welcome to my little space on the world wide web where I'll be attempting to Journal my steps on what I've poetically named : "My Journey of Discovery".
My dream for the past few years has been to gain Financial Freedom and become completely Debt Free. Its a lofty aspiration and one that I know is shared by many people across the globe! So many of us start business ventures and seek new challenges wanting to earn more and then if anything like me, slowly the excitement fades, the buzz dies down and before we know it, the great idea, the illustrious dream is forgotten and boxed away into a dusty corner of our minds.
I am guilty of being a "dreamer". I start ventures, go on courses, buy stock for resale, learn new skills and get excited with new ideas. But then I take my eye off the ball and get stuck into "life" and before I know it, the idea is shelved for a later date. So, what I'm hoping to do with this Blog is journal my actions and my projects. Perhaps this can help me focus my thoughts, my actions and my energy. Perhaps this will help me sort out the jumbled up cluttered cavern of ideas that is my brain and help me get on the road to success! I know I can be so much more than I currently am. I know I have it within me to move forward, achieve success... but all I need to do is Focus, Concentrate and most importantly stop Procrastinating!
I had to think long and hard about the Title and finally settled for this one as I remembered these lovely quotes I had scribbled down what seems like ages ago :
“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” - Greg Andersen
“Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” - Alex Noble
Thank you for taking the time to drop by, I hope you enjoy my ramblings and feel free to leave me a comment or two.
Wish me luck as I start my journey, and lets see what weird and wonderful things I will discover along the way...
