Analysis Paralysis

I have the trip planned. I am writing posts to inform you folks how I went about planning the trip. I just listened to thisĀ podcast that featured one of my inspirations. It was great to hear of his travels and very inspirational. He talked about how he gets asked all the time about how to start and what people should do to begin. He said it is best to just have the idea and go. You don’t want to spend too much time planning or you will never get out.

I’ve heard it described as “analysis paralysis” It means you spend so much time planning and thinking that you are unable to do the thing it is you were planning to do.

I feel myself falling into this paralysis. I want to do this trip more than you can imagine. As I look at the road maps, trip guides and thing to do’s I want to do it all. I know I can’t do it all so, I spend hours narrowing down the things I really want to do.

May, the month I would like to set off, is rapidly approaching. I have no money, zero views on my website and no sponsors. I fear that I won’t be able to go on this amazing journey and that thought really scares me. I need to spend some time reaching out to a larger audience. My Facebook friends and family haven’t helped spread the word as much as I’d imagined.

Have a great day

It all started with a dream

I was taking a nap one Saturday afternoon, dreaming of an epic adventure!

I was on a road trip. Going from National Park to National Park, on one continuous journey. Experiencing all that this beautiful land has to offer. When I woke up, I realized I was back on my couch, in the “real world”.

I knew then, I had to go about planning this trip. Before I forgot about it.
