One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.

See what you can find

Exploration is more than just going where you have never been. It is going where you have never been and carrying with you all your capabilities and your knowledge.

Consider what a potent combination that can be. Exploration gives you the opportunity to apply existing competence to new situations.

Explore with your feet, with your mind, or with your heart. Ideally, explore with them all.

Begin a story even though you are not sure how it will end. Put all you know and all you can do into that story.

As your story unfolds you’ll find yourself growing more knowledgeable, more capable. You’ll be eager to explore again and again.

What have you been preparing yourself to explore? Set off in that direction and see what you can find.

— Ralph Marston
