Fear and adventure

Fear and adventure

Two powerful and inextricably linked things.

Last week we welcomed one of our brilliant original HOW speakers Mikaela Toczek back to our membership to chat about adventures and microadventures.

Those smaller adventures right from your doorstep and reasons why these are so good for your soul. Alistair Humpheries talks about flipping the 9-5pm and getting out after work for an over night microadventure to be back at your desk at 9am the next day!

Elizabeth Gilbert, from her book Big Magic writes about how she addresses her fear when unknown outcomes are in the horizon:

Dearest Fear.

Creativity and I are about to go on a road trip together. I understand you’ll be joining us, because you alway do.

There’s plenty of room in this vehicle for all of us, so make yourself at home, but understand this: Creativity and I are the only ones who will be making any decisions along the way.

You’re allowed to have a seat, and you’re allowed to have a voice, but you are not allowed to have a vote. You’re not allowed to touch the road maps, you’re not allowed to suggest detours; you’re not allowed to fiddle with the temperature.

Dude, you’re not even allowed to touch the radio. But above all else, my dear old friend, you are absolutely forbidden to drive.

Happy Adventuring.
