Tuesday Travel Tip: Look Before You Leap

{Theo, planning his next move}
I often have the pleasure of cat sitting Theo. He is a pleasant cat who lives in a pleasant apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Like many cats, he loves to climb to the highest available surface, and then leap from one place to the next. The part that fascinates me is that I always know where he's going to jump. He looks at his target, pauses, adjusts his body, and then jumps. Maybe we should be doing the same every time we leap into something.
  1. Look. Know where you're going.
  2. Pause. Consider whether this is really where you want to go.
  3. Adjust. What needs to be lined up before you leap?
  4. Jump. Once you decide to go, completely commit to it.
Perhaps by following this careful planning process, you too can always land on your feet, just like Theo.

For additional ways to land on your feet, check out my new book, "Urban Nomad USA: Travel Sized Life Coaching for Journeys of All Sorts" now available for purchase! Better yet, contact Dawn to arrange for a live book release cabaret with your organization in August, 2012.
