Now, I get it. It looks like that!

I can't remember everything. It's a failing, but this book goes a long way toward helping me stay on track. I have had four different editions of these maps on my wall over the last ten years and, without them, I'm not sure where I'd be. I'd start out in one place and then imagine where I wanted to be. I made up some things that I thought would get me there. All this was represented on the map, which was on the wall, in color - 4' x 8'. When I recognized that I might be a bit off in the weeds or, if I found myself at a crossroads and had forgotten my destination, I could look up at the wall and see the whole plan. Not only where I was going, but where I had been. It was hard to miss. I could see my progress, take some consolation in that, and then nudge myself back onto the right path. Somehow, I always got to where I wanted to go. Then, I'd make a new map.
This book explains the process in a way that is clear and direct. It helps orient you toward change and says, try thinking about this, try thinking about that, and then get out of your head and put it on paper. What a relief to have it all where I can see it. Now, all I have to do is start walking and follow the path I've created for myself.
