Creating our own maps / by Evan La Ruffa

Ding! Ping! Swoosh! Boom!

Alerts of mundane happenings can make us feel like life is one big game of whackamole.

Bam, bam, bam with no rest in sight.

But what if we set a goal, built a plan, and executed it? What if alerts about sales, discounts and events receded because we already knew what we had to do?

Creating our own map is about seeing a future worth working toward, a project to complete… it’s also about believing we matter.

Making our own way isn’t about who signs our paystubs, it’s about whether or not we are part of the process of creating our own map.

Once we are inclusive enough, the maps will multiply.

You don’t have to be Magellan to chart a new course.
