2010 Survey Results

After a long day in the sun at the 2010 Crossfit Games in LA, I've flopped into my Aeron in the RV, which is parked near my old stomping grounds in Hollywood. I found an amazing parking spot right near the Farmer's Market that has no street cleaning and is always empty at night. You'd be surprised how important things like street cleaning become when you live in an RV. Anyway, I don't have enough energy left to pull myself out of my chair, so it's time to tally up the survey results from a couple weeks ago and share what I learned.

Life Nomadic

This one was totally unexpected. Around a third of the people who responded said that they want more Life Nomadic. To be totally honest, I didn't know people were that interested in it. The site, when it was separate, never developed the same sort of following this site has.

The Empowering Feeling of Taking Immediate Action

On The Barely Shaky Baboon

Many times I'll get a great idea, and just think to myself "that's a good idea, I should do that". Then it's set to the side, put on a list, or just forgotten.

One day I had an idea for a video I wanted to create, it was going to be a video about my life to show to friends and family before I left for 2 years. I had the thought " that's a good idea, but I know myself, if I don't do this right now the likelihood of actually doing it will be less than 50%". I had time available so I just started working on it, and it came out great.

This experience taught me that there's no sense in waiting to act. There's no better time than the present. And it felt amazing because I actually did it. Which is very empowering.

Many times i don't think of the ramifications of planning to do something or even just saying I'm going to do it. It's kind of like a little promise to myself, and then when I don't do it I lose some self respect because the next time I think about doing something I'll remember that I didn't do the last thing I was going to do.

It's as if a friend tells you he's going to do something for you and then doesn't do it, but worse because I have no one to blame or scapegoat, it's all on me.
