I read this book over the weekend. It's not new and I am pretty sure my friend Audra mentioned it to me years ago. A week ago, Chris Guillebeau came up in conversation and I looked him up. I quickly decided to read this book.
I highly recommend it. I have lived a life so far that I feel has a lot of "change the world" and "purpose". I have been a teacher. For the first time in a long time, I am no longer teaching. I loved teaching and it was a passion of mine. It did feel like it left behind a legacy. A legacy of care and love to my students and their families. Now I am not teaching. Who am I without teaching? Honestly, it's a question I am struggling with.
I have heard of people who write down goals and plans. I have never understood the merit of it, until reading his book. I am thinking through the things that I want to continue and perhaps a few things need to fall away.
