I used to drive a lot for work, when I was adjuncting at multiple colleges in the area. I drove maybe 3 or 4 thousand miles a month sometimes. It didn’t bother me that much, because I actually love car rides. I tend to think really well in the car and like to connect the dots on ideas I’ve been toying around with. These are great times to come up with keywords for Google searches.
Sometimes, driving home late at night, my imagination sees connections that I was too busy to see previously, and my thoughts dance around, building bridges. I’m not the fastest thinker, but given enough time I can break down any subject with the best of them (thank you Internet for the loads of information to answer ponderings).
Sometimes strategy and pivots take a while too. I usually have long term and short term goals running side by side on my agenda. Check off enough short-term goals and I end up reaching my long-term goal. What’s working, what’s not working, and what I need to do next to get to my long-term goal.
Everybody talks about making a lot of money, but I consider that my end goal: I have several other goals I need to achieve to get there. I want to strategize well enough to learn along the way and eventually hit that end goal.
What do you tend to think about a lot? What are some goals you have set for yourself, or for your business?
