So I took a big leap and registered for the 2012 World Domination Summit hosted by The Art of Non-Conformity’s Chris Guillebeau. By the way – do you know his work? If not, I highly recommend you poke around his site (linked above) and see if anything speaks to you.
Why is it a big leap? Well, my dear old Dad would point out that technically I’m still unemployed yet just plopped down a chunk of change for an event that is 10 months – and the length of a continent – away. But, more significantly, it’s a leap towards intentionally creating the life I want to be living.
Why did I do it? Because there will be a room full of thinkers, doers and livers there and I want in! It’s as simple as that. When I was
laid off freed from the bonds of a soul-sucking j-o-b 9 months ago, I decided to start designing my ideal life for real. I’d been thinking about what it looks like – my ideal life – since I did Mondo Beyondo in January 2009 (Andrea & Jen ~ I hope you are at WDS again!). And being reorged out of that job felt like the Universe giving me a Golden Ticket. Since then, I’ve been taking a series of baby steps and now I’m starting to run with it. OK, speed walk. Hey, you gotta start somewhere (seriously – just do it!)
I read the post 72 Hacks & Beliefs to Live & Work on Your Terms – from People Actually Doing it (World Domination Summit Recap) by 2011 WDS attendee Scott Dinsmore and decided this is exactly the kind of juicy stuff I want to roll around in. You should check it out ~ you may find some excellent nuggets (warning: you’ll also probably find a few new blogs to follow)!
If you’re going to WDS, I look forward to playing with you! Interest piqued? For now registration is closed but limited seats will go on sale in January. See http://worlddominationsummit.com/register/ for details.
Have you thought about how living the life of your dreams would feel? Go ahead, dream a little…
