‘Make it so’! In navigating change who makes it so? You do of course.
Your reality is what you want to experience, you will filter information that way. You will only take in the information that you can delete distort and generalize from your past experiences. And then, you will ‘make it so’ in the words of Jean Luke from Star Trek. (sorry I can’t resist it, but only the Trekkies will appreciate it!)
The command to ‘make it so’, is not a question it is how it is. So in stating a command, as you go on your adventures, there is no uncertainty only absoluteness. There are certain things we command of ourselves, standards and our expectation of self and others to make our experience more of what we want and how we want others to experience.
You might command of yourself that you surround yourself with people you can learn from, so you are continuously growing, or that you stand by certain principles and values as you discover the world around you, however, most of this is done unconsciously. Of course, it’s always good if there are a few ‘bum clenching moments’ because then you know you are pushing boundaries for yourself. And that’s how you know it’s a good adventure and it is worthwhile.
In navigating life’s adventures, you can be certain the only sure thing in life is change. Everything changes and the more we fight it or resist it, the less flow we experience. Navigating change is a systematic approach to ‘make it so’ And as Capt Pickard would say.
3 Ways to ‘Make It So’
Navigating change is easily done more efficiently when you are able to visualise the outcomes to ‘make it so’ toward what you want to experience.
1. Writing it down what you would like to experience it even better Draw it if you want to be creative to make it even more powerful.
2. Verbalising it out loud so that you feel the feelings of having as you evoke the emotions around plotting your path.
3. Visualise it the way you want to experience it.
This is most effectively done when you set some goals and outcomes in place, just as you would plan a holiday or another Galaxy in the case of Star Treks Capt Pickard. You must know what you want to experience, then you plot a destination and plan accordingly to ‘Make it so’.
There is no doubt that change is challenging, but it is even more challenging when you don’t know where your going or know what it is you want in the first place. But, where there is a challenge there is growth. Right? Regardless of your awareness of growth, you still have more information than you did before.
In the past when you have found yourself looking down the barrel of change have found strength in ourselves you didn’t know we had, and therein lies the beauty of change. This change may have been a desire to change jobs, taking action on beginning your idea to market, relationships change or finding a new direction. Sometimes we are not in control of the initial change but we do have control on how we drive the change and get the desired outcome.
Change can look like a horrific crazy event but can also be a blessing. Mostly if we choose to notice we bring that change on yourself. I remember saying to my partner as we went camping one day, “wouldn’t it be good if we could pack up our life as we know it and live on the road?’. Twelve months later we were travelling and living on the road.
New Experience of Freedom
As a digital nomad, we experience change each day on so many levels. New people, new places, new experiences, new challenges of connectivity. Our new experience of freedom is how we decided to live and experience the world around us.
The world is my home and my base is where my heart is most happy, with the people I love. Where I am most happy is in the outdoors and in nature. As I write this I am sitting on my camp chair in Mono QLD’s outback, working on my Microsoft Surface Pro on the back of my 4 wheel drive tailgate with the dog at my feet as the raven ‘caw’ and birds ‘chirping’ in the background. My life experience was different 12 months ago and now with all the startups, we have had the pleasure to work with I have more information than I did and the experience has changed me as I have more information and experience to draw on now.

Depending on how you have experienced life yourself to date, you may or may not have an experience that you can relate to how I choose to do life and what I am describing here, but I have and I carefully designed it this way. It might even make your head tilt and say “huh, you what?” Why would you do that? I couldn’t do that. And that is Ok in fact it is perfect. Because you see, my experience is not your experience and you will allow yourself to conceive something you find familiar.
People always ask us ‘where are we from and where are we going?’ What they really want to know is ‘why are you here?’ What are you doing in my town, myspace, and ultimately ‘how will this affect me?’ It is a natural survival skill we pull away when we don’t understand something.

A Spirit of Adventure
On my journey, through this divine life, I have been given, I have experienced so many great things, from living in the outback on Aboriginal missions to living in the desert in a five-star hotel and flying with Royalty and the craziness that comes in between. Fortunately for me, I have been very blessed with a ‘spirit of adventure’ (which we all have inside us depending on if we let it out to play) enables me to do what I do the way I do it. I am just exploring life my way. Of course, it is not without its challenges, like learning the art of telling my story in a way that it will give value, and encourage you on your own journey, with the knowledge you are not alone anything is possible. My parents bought me up in the Northern Territory and as a child, I was fortunate to experience life in the outback on Aboriginal missions.
The Purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. Eleanor Roosevelt

Understanding Your Personality Type
Begin with understanding who you are in can help you to identify and find out who’s who in the zoo. This was a game changer and for me. It helped me accept myself for who I am and that parts of me were, in fact, the whole zoo and that we play roles in our life to suit the circumstances, so the question is how long have you played that role for and is it still relevant to who you are today.
