WORDPRESS ATE MY BLOG POST!
I wish I could explain it, but somehow my published post from last week has evaporated into thin air. Apologies to those who subscribe to the blog and clicked through to find The Dreaded 404 Error.
Let’s try this again. Travel, Unplugged: 2.0.
Today’s post title is a bit tongue-in-cheek, as very little traveling these days is, in my opinion, “unplugged.” Few of us would dare venture to the supermarket – never mind overseas – without tech in tow.
Nowadays, there is an almost infinite number of ways to document your every move (at the supermarket or overseas). Snapchat. Twitter. Instagram. Facebook. Tumblr. iMessage. FaceTime. Line. Whatsapp. The list goes on… and on… and on.
Is it just me, or is technology making our world smaller?
One of the greatest and most dangerous truths about the world we live in is that we have access to endless opportunity: places to be, places to see, people to meet, things to do. We are in an age of hyperstimulation, where virtually everything is at our disposal, and everything is at our disposal virtually. As a result, we place immense pressure on ourselves to seize as many of these opportunities as possible, as often as possible.
It’s a lot… and sometimes, “a lot” can become “too much.” When this perceptual shift happens, one option in particular tends to rear its ugly head: the option to quit.
At the end of yesterday’s post, I promised to share some “insider intel” on how to deliver a seamless interview from start to finish…
…because you never know when you might find yourself on the other end of the mic.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had the pleasure of showcasing powerful, influential women from my home province of Saskatchewan on the cover of PINK Magazine for the past two and a half years.
If you’ll join me, I’d like to take you on a behind-the-scenes journey of the work I do for this darling publication.
Can you believe it? We’re halfway through the #my500words challenge!
Before I dive headfirst into today’s topic – long-term goals – I want to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has shown their support for this wacky little social experiment of mine. From words of encouragement to post suggestions and social media shares, you all have been the best accountability partners a gal could ask for. I mean it: go give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back (or glass of wine or whatever your indulgence of choice may be).
Alright, it’s goal time.
