  1. Welcome back for another episode of The Exciting Adventures of JediNickD! It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away that I joined this site and started my first challenge.. World 1 was my first extended stay through 22 challenges. I took a hiatus from NF and came back with a new direction for my goals where I warped to World 2, which I defeated in a Boss Fight slaying some mighty big goals. In World 3, I continue to develop my fitness, getting my body in the best shape of my life, even with the Degenerative Disc Disease, Arthritis, Disc Fissures, and more. Through physical therapy exercises and karate, I have maintained my core and back muscles to ease the pressure off my spine, but in the end I defeated World 3 by transforming my life into a new form. With chiropractic care for my spine, hitting the high ranks at karate, starting the new Toastmasters program called Pathways, and working to complete my Novice training at IJRS, World 4 feels like something new everyday. I just keep on L-I-V-I-N, fight the good (and healthy) fight, and level up my life! Challenge Lesson: " I need someone to show me my place in all of this." - Rey, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi {I avoided spoilers this time!} Whenever I take on something new, I look to a role model, mentor, or teacher to help me get started. I usually start with a generalized goal or desire in mind, but through experience and outside help, I mold it into something more finite. On my own, it can be difficult to see the end of the journey. The destination may look different than I expect, or I may be making inaccurate assumptions, or I may be focusing on the wrong descriptive factors of the destination to understand what it is. A mentor, role model, or teacher can help see that destination through the correct perspective and guide to form relevant and achievable goals to get there. The key is to have someone who has done it before. Steve Kamb has written previously about finding a mentor or coach who has done the thing you want to accomplish. I see it in the gym with guys who want to compete in body building linking up with trainers who have competed. At Karate, the instructors recognize struggles in the students which they previously experiences and go to help those students one-on-one. At Toastmasters, I work hard to be that person for all the newcomers to the clubs. For some of my projects, I am doing too much on my own. I have some role models I am looking to emulate things which they do or have done, but I think I need to actually reach out to people and get that perspective on my project struggles to improve and get through some hurdles. My biggest issue with these projects is prioritization, which will never change. They are leisure time activities, which is limited. If I want to be successful, then I need to change something. Having someone to help me find my place is the answer. My Main Quest and Mission: My mission is to be the best Jedi I can be. My main quest is always to enhance my overall health, fitness, and knowledge to be prepared for whatever challenges life could throw at me. As a Jedi, I need to be able to help people, whether that is a life threatening situation or just a charitable one. There is no boss level in Jedi training, there is only tomorrow.
