Goal Oriented

Secondly we live in a goal oriented culture.

Need Must Do Or Die

Want to becomes need to. Must do. Do or die.

Relentless

More importantly when I’m pursuing a goal I can be relentless.

Frustrated

Consequently I found myself in Arkansas the other day, frustrated and ticked off.

Preconceived Notions About The Day

To clarify I had this image in my head of just how the day was going to go. I would end up at the perfect campsite, right by the side of the road!

Arkansas

Certainly I had meticulously planned my transit through Arkansas.

Coffee Filters?

And then I ran out of coffee filters.

Haywire

As a result my day went haywire.

Off Intention…Off Course

In short I ended up on a highway I never intended to be on and wasn’t sure where I was going.

Change Your Attitude Brah

Ride Up Front With Me

Even more in this podcast you get to ride up front with me!

Lessons Learned

In the same vein there are many lessons I learn on the road.

Where’s The Fire?

For one thing I can forget I don’t have a tether and I don’t need to press on as though there’s no tomorrow.

How I Learn

Moreover this is how I can learn lessons that have applications to every day life.

Bliss Isn’t Always As Easy As It Looks

In addition though I talk about travel zen, reaching that state of bliss isn’t always as easy as I think it will be.

Ouachita National Forest

Finally I had to shift gears as I headed through the gorgeous Ouachita National Forest on my way to Dallas, Texas.

Short But Complex

In conclusion this is a short podcast about a complex issue.

Plans?

To sum up what happens when life doesn’t quite go the way we planned and expected?

We Don’t Need No Stinking Plans

In short sometimes the best things in life are the results of mistakes and miscalculations.

Now About Those Coffee Filters!

Or because someone runs out of coffee filters.

Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986

Springbreak Part2 The Interviews

Firstly it’s Springbreak and time for some interviews in Part2 of my travels to Florida this spring. Learn more in Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986.

Interesting People?

Secondly as a nomad Podcaster people I meet always say, “Boy you must interview some really interesting people”.

Certainly there are interesting people out here.

Until…

But generally speaking I find most people don’t have much to say when you stick a microphone in their face.

Interviews…Meh

Even more I am not big on interviews.

The Thing In Podcasting

Yes, interviews seems to be ‘the thing’ in Podcasting.

However I don’t do what everyone else does.

I Do Find People To Interview

Every now and then I run across people to interview, though.

For example two young spring breakers in Panama City Beach, Florida.

And a truly engaging woman who owns a coffee shop in Madison, Florida.

As a result Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986 is a unique podcast for me.

Different Approaches To Life

Most importantly these interviews illustrate different approaches to life at different times in life.

Something Real

In short I’m looking for something real out here.

No Small Talk

I don’t want to engage in small talk, especially when it comes to interviews.

Long Term Effects Of The Pandemic

In the same vein I ask how today’s younger people feel the Pandemic might effect their lives in the future.

Coffee House

And I wonder how an internationally traveled and accomplished woman decides to run a great coffee house in a small town in the Florida Panhandle in addition to other demanding interests.

I think the answer is truly enlightening.

Unique Times

Finally we are living in unique times.

Huge Opportunities

While there are challenges there are also huge opportunities if we have the right mindset.

Florida!

In conclusion I’ve always thought Florida is one of the best examples of this reality.

The Sunshine State

To sum up I’ve been coming down to the Sunshine State since I was a kid.

Never Ceases To Surprise

The People of Florida and those who come here here to change their lives, never cease to surprise me.

Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975

This Nomad Avoids National Insanity

Firstly listen to Nomad-Avoids-National-Insanity-Bob Davis Podcast 975. And to my New Years Podcast here.

Peace In Campground

Secondly I have new respect for nomads and travelers who seek the peace of the campground.

New Year New Themes

Above all this podcast continues some of the themes of my new years podcast.

It’s Not Over

I don’t think the craziness is over, for example.

And we’re not going to resolve our differences anytime soon.

Hit The Road

As a result I have gone on the road. Permanently.

Not Touching Nomads

In short most of the things that are driving people crazy right now aren’t touching me.

A Fire And A Sunset Is A Good Cure

In the same vein sitting by a fire and watching the sunset will cure almost any neurosis!

Back In The Day

For example a few years ago I would have been all over the mess in the US Capitol this week.

No more.

Political Talk Is Bad Energy

To clarify many of my new listeners and subscribers don’t want the bad energy political talk brings.

Sick To Death Of It All

Even more many of my long term people are just sick to death of the whole thing.

I don’t blame them.

Coffee, Fire and Sunset

Moreover when I put the sunset, coffee and fire together, who cares?

Welcome To The Epoch Of Upheaval

Finally I would be a fool to deny we’re living through a significant period of upheaval.

No Triggers

But if you allow yourself to be triggered by every event you’re going to have a tough time.

Let Outcomes Go For Now

In addition it’s not a good idea to attach our attention to outcomes.

Stay Flexible

Most importantly we have to stay flexible.

Change and Challenge Ahead

That is to say even more change and challenge is ahead.

Pace yourselves.

The Wilderness Helps

Meanwhile getting out in the wilderness anywhere can’t hurt.
