2 Essential Questions to Answer When Starting an Online Course

Living My Dream Right Now
I keep telling myself that one day I’ll travel the world. One day I’ll get two dogs. One day I’ll take a road trip around the US. One day I’ll own a Bed & Breakfast.
I have these amazing dreams, but they all have the same theme in common – they’re hopes and dreams for the future. It’s always ONE DAY.
Recently, I’ve decided to hell with one day! I’m going to start checking off my bucket list right now.
Creating change and reaching goals, I’ve learned, starts with taking action. My wildest dreams can come true if I just plan and work towards achieving them and not day dreaming about some imaginary time in the future.
My pre-Mid-Life Crisis
So, I made my dream of owning a convertible come true by buying a 1991 Mazda Miata.
I’m loving the driving experience – the wind blowing in my hair, the sun shining on my face, and the scent of diesel fuel wafting in the air.
I love my car, but there’s only one problem – she’s HIGH Maintenance. The buying process took less then a week — the fastest I’ve ever purchased a car.
She beeps at me. She only starts up when the temperature’s just right. She leaks oil. Her plastic window in the back is cruddy making it difficult to see out. And, she vibrates when I reach 60 mph.
After owning it for a few months, I’m wondering why I didn’t ask MORE questions before buying because if I had, I would have been more prepared with its small problems.
