Everybody needs a comfortable place to start . . . so just find yours. You could start with a list of "stories" you want to tell – maybe one a week – that you can write and organize later (see the Lifebook); or you could list your "life locales" – all the places you've ever lived (see Maps) – as this is a GREAT way to organize your photos, etc.; or you could start by doing a simple inventory of your photos, memorabilia, docs, hobbies, collections, and artifacts – that you can organize down the line. The message here . . . Start NOW . . . organize LATER!.
Here's a Hint –
Contrary to popular belief, you don't really need to KNOW exactly where your work (and play) may take you. Sometimes it's better to just EXPRESS yourself – as you will – on subjects that are most important. And like beads on a bracelet, you can order & organize them later . . . when you have a better idea of what you've got.
