What would you do?

What would you do if you knew, 100% for sure, no doubt about it, guaranteed, knew that you could not fail?

Are you currently doing that thing anyways?

I’ve been thinking about question #1 all day. I know what I would do: I’d train for an Ironman distance triathlon and I’d write. I’d write my blog, I’d write more articles (I had two published last year, which was exciting, but I’ve done jack about doing more since then), I’d pay attention to the story ideas that come to me and I’d write.

As for question #2, the answer is kinda, sorta in some half-assed ways I do those things. But, if I am being honest with myself, I don’t really try.

What about you? I’d really love to read your comments on this to questions.

    I would : 1) train for the Comrades Marathon
    2) write and write and write and write whatever I wanted to, for days and weeks at a time
    3) study film making
    4) teach some.
    I am currently doing #4, a tiny bit of #2, and none of #’s 1 and 3. I’m not quite sure what I’m waiting for…

    #1 – I would quit this stupid job and open my own business, probably something like doggie daycare or pet photography.
    #2 – Not really, but sort of. I need this stupid job right now but I am planning to get myself a nice camera and play around more with photography again.
