Dave Rat Blog - Peppers Peru, The Decision Triangle
There are three primary variables forming a triangle that resembles a three cornered pyramid viewed from above. The three poInts are: enjoyment, education and enrichment, with the center-point being healthiness connecting them all. Whenever facing a decision on how or whether to expend a portion of my life in one direction or another, I ask myself "will I learn new and exciting things? Will I have fun and enjoy remembering the adventure? Will I return with enhanced life stability?"
The more "yes's" or "no's" I answer and the more powerful they are, the easier the decision becomes. What I seek is balance, a well rounded mix of 'yes' is better than a huge 'yes' and three solid 'no's.' For example: for me, I have no interest in doing something that pays massive money yet is miserable, mundane and unhealthy.
So to that end, one of the aspects I am embracing on this tour is to try and surf as many countries as possible between airports, hotels and rock shows.
Thank you Paulo, Juano and Harold for the awesome surf adventure in Peru and thank you Joe Ryan for lining it up!
I am a few days behind but next bloggery stop is peru and chile gigs while we get ready to rock Buenos Aires in reality time.
