Hi, welcome to episode one of Cape Cod Gunny - "What do I want to be when I grow up".
That's a very difficult question to answer sometimes. My daughter asked me that when she was young well I asked her basically "Melissa what do you want to be when you grow up?"
She says "I don't know?"
I said, "Well, start making a list of things you don't want to do and don't do it and eventually you will figure out what you want to be when you grow up."
So, to make it easier I came up with a different idea. Create two lists. One list is things that you want to do and the other list is things that you don't want to do and don't do it.
In fact you can actually create your like bucket and don't like bucket.
We went to IKEA yesterday, my wife and I and, I found the perfect box to use for your like bucket. We saw this on the shelf, and it's called a sockerbit.
I said "Wow look at that." Lisa says to me, "Yeah that'll work". "Yeah but I don't want to be opening the top."
So, right next to it they had this and it's also a sockerbit.
This one is $2.99 and this two-piece is $3.99. These two cost like seven bucks.
And my wife says "I bet you that top will fit on there!"
And you know what it does. So we took the top off and put it on this and this is your like bucket. And you can take scraps of paper, you scribble something on a piece of paper, a 3x5 card, anything, and put in all of this is what I like stuff.
Then you also have to create your other bucket for stuff that I don't like. And it's just as important to have a don't like bucket because that way you don't want to do things that are in here you want to concentrate only on what you're like bucket is.
So, this is Cape Cod Gunny episode one what do I want to be when I grow up. If you don't know, start by creating your like bucket and your don't like bucket. Once a month open up your like bucket and see if you find your passion.
Thanks for watching.
This is Cape Cod Gunny talk to you later.
