Hatching My Escape Plan


Drain boy by phill.d.So, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my Plan to Escape Mediocrity. I swear it feels like I am masterminding a breakout from Alcatraz. (Cue Mission Impossible music!)

Seriously, I think if I – and anyone else who wants to come along – will ever break free from mediocrity and into a life and business filled with authentic adventure, we need a plan, a map, a blueprint so we can tell if we are on the right track.

I want to share what I have come up with so far. These are in no particular order because no one is going to have the exact same escape route. But I think we can at least use them to stake out where we need to begin digging the tunnels.

My plan now is to write a blog post for each one of these so we can elaborate and discuss them.

My rucksack is packed – have a compass, a shovel, and a canteen. Anyone else coming?!

Blueprint for a Kick-Butt Escape Plan

  1. Accept Responsibility, or Not. (wrote blog posts about this here and here.)
  2. Define and Defend Your Integrity.
  3. Check Your Assumptions.
  4. Consider Your Choices.
  5. Pay Attention.
  6. Get Into Gratitude.
  7. Secure Your Spiritual Core.
  8. Play to Your Strengths.
  9. Seek Wise Counsel.
  10. Protect Your Priorities.

***Emergency Plan for when you get totally lost: Go find someone who needs help and help them.***
