There are a million ways to tell a story. My way, for better or worse, has always been to start with the opposite. On the one hand, this can be exhaustingly incongruent with the generally agreed upon worldview required for existing within our modern structures and norms. And on the other hand, there are secrets and buried treasure hidden in the opposite, the upside-down, the inverse, the counterfactual. I invite you to come step out of line with me, towards a new kind of adventure. Please pack lightly.
Episode details

Wayfinding Topic 4: If you want to know the future, tune into as many intricacies of the present moment as possible. Challenge the assumption that goals should be big and lofty. Consider how the smallest goals can be the most revolutionary goals. Take nothing for granted.

This framework allows us to ground and integrate the dynamism of dreams into daily living. Otherwise our dreams just stay up in dreamland forever and we never get to realize them down here, where we live. 

This is the 1st of a series of 4 categories of small revolutionary goals.
