My mission is to build my camper. I have plans I purchased for the project and I have been gathering materials for months. I also have a dedicated facebook page for builders that I can, and do, access.
Assignment 1: Find your true purpose
To put in perspective, I am a 69 year old, retired, addictions counselor. My income is limited to a small rental income and my social security.
I want to do this to achieve freedom. More specifically, I want to travel the US and see places I have never seen before, like the Grand Canyon, Mt St Helens, the Rockies, the Pacific Ocean. And when I think of the travel, I get excited to accomplish this!
Assignment 2: Turn the world into your motivator.
1. watching videos of people traveling (daily),
2. seeing other people towing campers,
3. Talking to others about my plans,
4. planning a trip with a friend,
5. a sense of accomplishment.
Assignment 3: Sharpen your goal
I will have accomplished my goal the first night I sleep in my camper, whilst traveling.
Assignment 4: Formulate an effective plan.
Actually going to the shop (my garage 100' from my house), and working on the camper. I will go to the shop each day, Monday thru Thursday, at 1:00PM and quit working around 5. I will clean the shop on Saturday, after work. ( I work 1.5 days a week in a small hardware store and lumber yard.) I will set an alarm on my phone to remind myself.
Assignment 5: Create a habit building schedule
I believe that I did this in #4.
Assignment 6. Stay energetic.
Also did this in #4 by leaving mornings and evenings free, and all day Sunday.
