Some go through life with a plan, some coast, and other just wing it. I like to think I have a combination of a plan and winging it. So a technical wing?! I plan stuff out, HA just look at my tracker spreadsheet (breaks EVERYthing down), but at the same time I love to keep my options open for winging it. Some days, just need to see where the adventure takes ya by saying, “YES!”. I did that hardcore for a few years, which I am paying for it now debt wise. Might have said, “yes” a little more than I should have. BUT I gotta say, it was fantastic! I learned so much about myself, the world, direction I want to go with my life, and so so much more. I would not trade it for anything or say I regret it, because I don’t regret anything in life. Everything we experience is just that, an experience. Something we can learn and grow from; or something we can look back and reflect on how awesome or terrible a situation was. Either way, we are here, together, around the universe, at this point in time. Past is the past. It molded us into who we are today, but it does not dictate when to stop molding. We decide that. To keep on keeping on, to add more layers, or to take the design in a new direction.
Recently, I figured out there are better and smarter ways to have both a plan and winging it. Having the plan helps me I stay on track with my goals. Yet, being able to wing it allows me to keep my inner child alive. This is something I focused intensely on this past year. Due to that, I am going to be launching my own Stand-Up Paddle boarding outing service called, SUPing with Rozyboom! This service I fully believe I will be fantastic at! Combining my passions for SUPing with photography, travel, teaching, mentoring, and all things outdoors into one. Taking people out for their first time paddling, learning new skills, exploring paddle destinations, or simply pushing themselves to level up. This would not be possible if I didn’t plan. Registering, investing, building, creating, tracking, singing up, allocating, and so on are all aspects of kicking a business off the ground. My favorite part, is reached out to companies to team up or to pick the brains of others. I also enjoy making short term goals, long term goals, potential expansions, and other future state aspirations. It helps give me a direction, since I am easily distracted.
