  7. 7. THE ROAD NOT TAKEN Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. ATX Journey Entrepreneur
  8. 8. What is the “Goal” of a Journeyer? Sinatra For what is a (journeyer), what has she got? If not herself, then she has naught To say the things she truly feels and not the words of one who kneels The record shows I took the blows and did it my way! ATX Journey Entrepreneur

  10. 10. STAGE 1 Land of the safety/outcome • 1 model of a phenomenon • Answers, given to us by - parents, society, etc. • The meaning of life is outsourced and you simply follow. Success is externally defined and measured. • Safety: conform to the norm • Outcome: make some kind of predefined result • Theme Song: Everybody wants to rule the world! • ACTION: Accept • their way Society is totally optimized for S1 ATX Journey Entrepreneur
  11. 11. STAGE 2 The treacherous sea of duality and letting go • 2 models: use #2 to push away from S1 • Buddha goes to the forest • Pi is cast into the ocean • Key action: Letting go of S1 • misunderstood by s1 as “enlightenment.” • Buddhism, yoga, meditation, • Difficulty/Allure & Challenge of S2 • THEME SONG: Washing of the Water • ACTION: Reject • Another Way ATX Journey Entrepreneur
  12. 12. STAGE 3 The shore of your way • A new model! • You take on the responsibility for yourself. You become your greatest art project and work to become more of yourself every day. • Remove the excess, distill and occupy your unique spot in the universe. • you-ing • THEME SONG: Get Up!, My Way • ACTION: Curate • my way ATX Journey Entrepreneur
