LOOKING BACK, LOOKING AHEAD
(Published: 2010-01-03)

The month of January is named after Janus, the mythological Roman god of gates and doorways, beginnings and endings. He is most often depicted as having two heads facing in opposite directions.

Janus is the perfect metaphor for looking back at the past as we prepare for what’s ahead in the future. You’ve probably had your fill of retrospectives by now, so I’ll limit myself to a few thoughts on what I hope lies ahead.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how big our world is and how small-minded we’ve become; how quick we are to judge and how slow to understand. Technology places the resources of the world at our fingertips, yet we have trouble seeing past the ends of our noses.

Time to take a walk in another world. Resolve to leave the screens of your ‘virtual world’ momentarily behind and plan a ‘real world’ adventure in 2010. Here’s my A to Z inspiration for your journey.

Adventure calls.
Blaze a new trail.
Cross a continent.
Dare to discover.
Escape the routine.
Find a fresh perspective.
Go slow; gaze absentmindedly and savor every moment.
Have some fun!
Invest now in future memories.
Journeys are the midwives of thought…..
Keep a journal.
Leave prejudice and narrow-mindedness behind.
Make for the horizon and meet new people.
Navigate the unknown.
Observe, and open your mind.
Pursue a road less traveled.
Quest for truth.
Rely on yourself.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Take a risk.
Unleash your curiosity.
Venture further.
Why wait?
eXpect the unexpected…..say
Yes to adventure….journey with
Zeal!

St. Augustine said: “The world is a book; those who don’t travel read only one page.” Resolve to turn a page in 2010.

I wish you all wonderful adventures in the year ahead.
