I'm going to spare you tales of more fucking snow, and just say, it's snowing again. Also my propane is down to just 20% full again, after only refilling it 1 month ago and being told that it needed filling about every 4 months. No coyotes encountered in the cold, driving snow on our walk today though, so that's a good thing.
Anyway, today to focus on other things besides the trials and tribulations of mountain life...
This is not something that happens often, but I think I underestimated how much use I got out of living in a place that was warm all year since 2002, and having a full time job in the years in NYC right before that.
Turns out, I use a lot of my free time to just walk or sit outdoors. I don't really need more stimulation than that for hours out of each day. The rest of the day I can easily fill with cooking all my meals from scratch, puttering around online, meditation, and writing. In the evenings I typically just watch videos or surf the internet.
I have some volunteer obligations and a group meditation I often go to, but those take up just hours per week. So once you take out all the outdoor time (because it's simply too cold out there) I seem to run out of things I want to do.
Now in a couple weeks I will be heading to a warmer place with no coyotes, and will be there most of the rest of the Winter. But this still highlights that I simply need more creative activity in my life, even if I can get back to where I'm distracted from that by the sheer joy of being out in nature for hours each day.
More Service, More Money
In my entire life, I've never been able to maintain much interest in any hobby that wasn't monetized. Well unless you consider spiritual study and practice a hobby. I consider it a survival skill, which you would understand if you had my childhood.
So as I start thinking of new things to fill my time, I know immediately that I want to help people in new ways and do so in a manner that also generates more money for me to invest in crypto and precious metals.
I would also like for it to involve others, as my life is entirely too solitary now that I've moved away from where all my longterm friends are.
Some things I'm currently considering:
- Studying for the exam to be licensed as an Investment Advisor then using that to do all sorts of interesting workshops, videos, workbooks, masterminds, etc.
- Building a community greenhouse on my open land that uses a water catchment system
- Getting my crypto mastermind group going again to give folks new to crypto a way of pooling knowledge and making better decisions together
Just thinking out loud. This is my no means an exhaustive list of possibilities.
If you too have been thinking about monetizing some way of helping others, you are invited to brainstorm/collaborate with me.
Do you see anything in the above list you'd like to do some form of? Can you see how it might be collaborative? Any collaborative ideas not directly related to this list?
