Today is the day! Are you ready? (Are we ever really ready?).
In the hero’s journey, this stage is the call to adventure or the call to action. The quest begins! No one knows what will happen, but there’s sure to be tension, excitement, challenges, and growth ahead.
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.” ― Joseph Campbell
What was your call to action? Or, in other words, what made you want to do the project this year? What’s pulling you? It might be a word, a theme, a mantra, a goal.
Write it down and put it somewhere you’ll see it every day – on your desk or your fridge, the cover of your notebook, the lock screen or wallpaper of your phone or computer.
Exploring your why and keeping it at the forefront of your mind will help you when you get stuck.
