People tend to believe that to chase a dream, one must keep working on it at full speed and total intensity until they achieve it. And while you DEFINITELY need commitment and consistency to get anywhere having a super-hardcore approach all the time can be a giant mistake.
For example, the physically intense 1000 mile solo canoe trip that I did in the summer of 2019 took years to organise, and it would have been silly to burn myself out in the first couple days. To really make a dream come true, you need to spend most of your energy planning and training mentally so you don’t exhaust yourself physically!
I recorded this podcast on the topic of following your dreams while in my tent on the first day of The 1000 Mile Solo. I hope you find some useful tidbits in it for following your own dreams, whatever they may be!
