I make treasure maps. Is your life an adventure?
I can help you chart your course to the treasures you seek. I’ve set out an adventure with a team of the best explorers, most daring discoverers and fearless pirates the world has ever seen. This team cuts through endless seas of information overload in the dark of night in pursuit of the treasures that some people think no longer exist…but they are wrong. We get stuck, we get lost…it’s a very confusing and overwhelming world; this team can show us the way. (Read about some of the team in The Top 4 Most Likely People to Change Your Life…for the Better.)
What I hope to leave behind is a set of maps and charts for my kids. More importantly, I hope to be able to teach them to make their own maps…to find the treasures they seek. You are welcome to come along and use these maps.
BACKGROUND: It took me years to figure out what my path was. I read dozens of self-help books, took online quizzes, searched my soul and still found no answers. It seemed that as soon as I found something that fit and started moving in that direction, regardless of how excited I was, it was only a matter of time before I lost enthusiasm and felt that I was trying to live someone else’s life. Then after years and years of this (about 11 years to be exact) it hit me…
This site is about learning to make maps. Plain and simple. Visual aids to get us from here to there, wherever your here or there happens to be. Making good maps is a skill that anyone can learn. The tools that can be used are limitless and I will cover as many as I can as I continue to explore and refine my own map habit. I would love your feedback – the good, the bad and the ugly – just give it to me (I’ve been an IT Manager for 5 years and have developed a relatively thick skin to criticism and try to learn from it when I can).
My name is gavin and I have the map habit.
