What Is An Adventure?
What is an adventure?
It is something I've been thinking about a lot over the last few days.
Ever since a friend came over to talk about how things were going after the changes we've made.
She made me think more about what we were doing as a company and why we are doing it.
We've always sold things, but it's not the products that drive us, it's what they enable you to do.
What problems they help you to solve and what adventures they help you have.
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Rich, Get Outside!
I thought, as I writing about adventure, I should get outside of the office.
I was working from home anyway and I wanted to shoot some video to go with this post and thought why not have a little mini adventure at the same time.
I've come outside, I've got the fire going in the wood burner and here we are.
The purpose of asking the question is to dispel any thoughts or the myth that adventures are reserved for the elite.
To tell you that adventure doesn't have to be a huge monster activity.
That actually, the adventure can mean a million different things to a million different people.
If I'm going to have any chance of encouraging you to get outside more often and have even more fun with your family, I need to understand that what you consider to be adventurous could be massively different to someone else reading this post.
I'm very aware of what I do to satisfy my thirst for adventure is very, very different from what Rach, my fiancee, might consider being adventurous.
Something I'll talk about a little later!
I wanted us to start having that conversation with you about adventure.
What that means to you, and how we can help encourage you to go and have done a little bit more.
What is an adventure?
We asked this very question over on our Facebook Page and this is what you said:
That's, what I'm doing now. Having a little adventure...
Sat by a fire, in my garden in December, working on this blog.
It doesn't have to be scaling some massive peak somewhere or running across America.
Those things are adventures, but they may not be your adventure.
Let's talk about what little adventures you can do in and around the home.
Then in your hometown.
Let's start small and build them up.
Are you adventurous?
Do you consider yourself adventurous?
No, why not?
If you do, tell me about the adventures that you've been on.
For those of you that are asking how can you be more adventurous, I need to know where your comfort zone ends or starts, depending on which way you look at it.
What would you consider to be within your comfort zone?
What would you consider to be out of it?
Let's see if we can bridge the gap between the two.
