THE METAPHOR. We are on a lake, in a row boat, one oar, and in a heavy fog. We THINK there is a shore ahead of us, but we can't see it, not sure what we will find when we land.
Currently, feels like we're rowing in a circle, not getting anywhere.
I think there are a few different shore lines ahead.
1) Freedom and Independence.
2) Need, frustration and lack of resources.
I want to help people to row their little boats to shore line #1.
HOW? By planning, and taking meaningful action in the direction of your goals, making adjustments as you go.
This from an outline of my latest report, which was getting way too big, and out of control. So, I went back to the drawing board, and this is what I came up with. And I could be wrong.
It isn't ONLY about the money.
But it is MOSTLY about the money. See, income is what is so tenuous, so unpredictable for millions...today. Income of tomorrow is the big uncertainty.
Of course, survival. But once we seemingly have this crisis "under control" and the pent up desire for some normalcy kicks in, we have to look at our incomes.
SOOOOO, adjusting my report for INCOME goals of the near future.
Seems to me the uncertainty of the situation makes most people FEAR the future. Most of the people I talk to roll their eyes at every government mandated closure or freedom-destroying rule. We want the malarky to stop.
Just yesterday I found out that a certain doctor (you know who it is) has patents for a vaccine for COVID... Way before the present pandemic... I digress.
In any case, helping people make more to handle anything coming down the pike seems a wise move.
