  8. 8. Final, Polished Piece: The Finish Line: Was it Worth the Trip</li></li></ul><li>Choose a Road <br />Consider your options.<br />Are there boundaries? Will you stay close to home or travel far? Is time a factor?<br />Can you find reliable directions to guide and support you on this journey?<br />Can you picture a route to your destination? Is it clear and direct or fuzzy and circuitous? <br />Choose one destination. Is it interesting, meaningful, and logical?<br />
  9. 9. A Meaningful Journey<br />Why are you making this journey?<br />Is there a purpose? Do you have a goal or mission to accomplish?<br />Whatwill you gain from the experience?<br />Will the journey be meaningful and worthwhile to you and to others?<br />
  10. 10. Draw a Map<br />Keep your destination and purpose in mind and plan your trip carefully. <br />What questions and concerns do you have?<br />Did you find reliable directions and information to guide you?<br />What steps will you need to take? In what order? Which steps are most important?<br />Will others be able to follow your path? <br />
  11. 11. Drive All Night<br />Follow Your Map & Enjoy the Ride! <br />Bike. Drive. Run. Sail. Walk. Fly.<br />Think. Compose. Write <br />
  12. 12. Rest Stop<br />Take a break. Breathe. <br />Reflect on the journey. Are you making progress?<br />Does this destination and direction still feel right and make sense to you?<br />Are you still on the right track?<br />Are you curious about a different destination or perhaps an alternative route to your original<br /> destination.<br />
  13. 13. Ask for Directions <br />Be open to new ideas and ask for feedback.<br />Ask others if you are on the right track or if there is an alternate path worth considering?<br />Is your map realistic, reasonable, and clear?<br />What additional information is needed?<br />What can you do to make the trip more interesting and meaningful?<br />
  14. 14. U Turn<br />If the route does not seem right, change direction.<br />Is there a different road that can take you to your original destination?<br />Do you need to begin again with a whole new destination?<br />Consider your options before you get back on the road.<br />
  15. 15. On the Road Again<br />Do you have a revised plan or perhaps even a different destination?<br />Does this revised plan or new destination make more sense to you and to others?<br />Do you need more information? Do you have new questions, ideas, or concerns?<br />Stay on track and follow your revised plan.<br />
  16. 16. Are We There Yet?<br />Examine your work carefully.<br />Do you have all of your ducks in a row?<br />Do you need to fix, change, adjust, or rearrange anything? <br />Does your work need a basic tune-up or a complete overhaul? <br />
  17. 17. The Finish Line <br />Reflect on what the journey has meant to you and what it might mean to others.<br />Did you end up where you intended when you started this journey?<br />What has been the most challenging part of the journey? What has been the most rewarding?<br />Have your ideas and views changed after going through this experience?<br />C. Lambe 2011<br />
