Yes, I’m Talking to You. Dammit, Pay Attention!
Pull your seat a little closer, sit up straight, close your gaping mouth and listen.
Really. Focus. Pay attention…
You’re sitting there, behind your desk, in front of your computer screen.
Maybe it’s Tuesday today, but that isn’t important. It could be Monday, it could be Wednesday, it could be any work day of the week.
This week, next week, next month. It’s all the same.
Same desk, same PC. Same Tuesday. Same, same, same.
Wouldn’t you like a little change in your life?
Couldn’t you use a little change in your life?
I received a comment today. Some guy asking about getting a Czech driving license on my Czech driving license post.
Then it hit me – I haven’t received a comment in a long while.
No one asking “But what about…?” or “How would I…?”
Well, what about you? Why haven’t You written that question?
Am I writing this for my health? No. Sure, writing this blog gives me a smile.
But more importantly, it should be giving you ideas, motivation, the “ah-ha” moment to start a plan, screaming “By God, I’m going to Do It!”.
Before I dive into creating some all-encompassing how-to guide…let me ask some beginner questions:
1. Do you have a passport?
May seem simple, but it’s important, so I’ll repeat it. Get a passport. Caution: when you hold it in your hand, you may experience a little tingle. It’s normal.
2. Do you have your shit in order?
I mean, no $30,000 credit card debt, no summons in the mailbox, no parole officer hassling you… If none apply, you’re good to go.
3. Are you generally a happy person?
The answer is likely yes. However, if you feel like slicing your wrists after watching a sad TV commercial, then culture shock may not sit well with you. If you are a generally happy person, then you’re good to go.
Can You Do It? – Yes!
Deciding to just pack it all up and experience life elsewhere ….it’s not a hard decision.
It’s a very easy one. The hard part is in doing it.
They did it.
But it can be done. Most recently, just this past weekend, a couple I know (through this blog) did it. (Damn, I can almost hear the Dora the Explorer end theme song: “We Did It – Hooray!”)
Just a few months ago, I got a “What if…?” question from a sweet, young couple from Arizona. Now they live and are teaching in Prague, Czech Republic.
They did it. And so can You.
So, are you ready? If so, I guarantee I will move you overseas.
I look forward to hearing from you.
