adventure check (off) list

submission for the daily adventure check list assignment. by- Courtney

1.  Take a photo everyday

… (yeah and I KNOW I just bought a new camera…)


2.  Write

I met my morning pages ritual head on this week. (My ritual is 3 pages of free-writing every single day in my journal.) I also adopted a new organizing method inspired by index cards and the following news article:

3. Express yourself

The more you give, the more of yourself you put forth…does equate to getting more. This week I remembered what it means to be on a team with your friends and what it feels like to accomplish something in stride. This week I invited a new friend to a new yoga class that I’d been saying for a very long time, I would try. I will remember this when I put something off again…and again for someday…later…

I attended my first AcroYoga class this weekend.


4.  Submit

I sent a one-liner to the local newspaper for a “headline this cartoon” contest  (I have yet to see if it made it to print.) I submitted 25 lines based on the photo prompt for Writer’s Digest Magazine (contest #61.) My dad and I finally compiled a video clip highlighting some of our adventures on our hunt for Forrest Fenn’s treasure this summer. We submitted the video to a production team that has expressed interest in our quest. Perhaps a camera crew will accompany us on our next trip to the search site in 2015 and perhaps it will all be made into an episodic series, coming soon to a television near you.

daily adventure check list.

check list

living an adventurous life does not usually happen in an instant.  it is a constant and consistent effort to move towards the daring, the uncomfortable and the exciting.  adventure is a mindset, it is a habit, it is a choice.

this week we urge you to be consistent in your adventures by completing a certain number of tasks daily.  but how can adventure be formulated into a list you ask?  freedom through discipline.  freedom through discipline, our adventure seeking friends!

adventure check list:

1.  take a photo everyday.  this photo should be interesting, exciting, thought provoking-something that you are proud to display.

2.  write.  a paragraph, a story, an anecdote, or even a well crafted sentence.

3.  find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.  express your opinion.  challenge the status quo.  frighten yourself.  impress yourself.

4.  submit your work!  there are countless writing competitions and photo contests out there.  go find one!  in fact, find one every day and go for it!  because, why not?!  put yourself out there! someone has to win and it might as well be you, adventure seeker!

post a record of your completed check list every day and make adventure become a habit.  share your experiences with us at adventureclubinteractive@gmail.com
