I’ve always wanted to get a tattoo but I never could figure out what I’d want on my body for the rest of my life. I was in the climbing gym the other day and spotted someone with a compass tattoo and something clicked for me. Suddenly I had all these ideas!
Various quotes an phrases that I live life by started to come to me in iconic forms starting with the compass, which reminded me of line from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People noting how effective people put first things first. They are governed by an internal compass, not just a clock.
I started thinking of a tattoo that purposely reminds me off all the things that push me forward.
A compass = knowing/having a heading in life. clearly knowing your priorities. A compass that doesn’t point North… a compass that points the way FORWARD.
An arrow = also means FORWARD
An Arrow with a heart = follow your heart…. later turned into a heart-beat. Follow the things that make your heart beat faster.
A broken clock = we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Make every second count.
All in alignment = setting up all aspects of my life to push in right direction.
Some Burning Man Elements = one of the places where I’ve felt all these elements in alignment.
