Find Your Own Adventure
by bizshop

Those who think adventure is dead are simply unwilling to find it. We have the capability today to know more information in five minutes than could be known in five decades a short time ago. There is great adventure waiting in anything new. Yet most people spend their time rooted in the familiar. The TV goes on when they get home. They take the same route to work every day. They haven't studied a new skill for many years. Then they complain about the lack of adventure!

Boredom is an internal problem!

Get out of your rut!
Learn a new language.
Unplug your television.
Get up an hour earlier and take a long walk.
Practice drawing cartoons of people you see.
Drive out of town after dark, just to look at the sky.
Learn how to give a good massage.
Take an object you use everyday and learn how it is made and then make one (bind a book, sew a shirt, anything).
Board an unfamiliar local bus, and just ride it all the way around.
Take a night class in an unfamiliar subject.
Really explore your public library. Devote a whole day.
Take the bus instead of your car one day a week, or ride a bike.
Make a point of getting to know somebody new.
Drive exactly 25 miles in one direction, then write down everything you see.
Pick a country you've never been to and find out all you can about it.
Practice writing with your other hand.
Learn how to mindmap.
Volunteer at your local charity.
Try any new food or drink you have a chance to.
Order #14 at every new restaurant, without looking at the menu.
Savor life.
We only pass this way once.
Life is an adventure.
Live it large!
