  1. Flow of events :
    1. Saturday, March 14
      1. I met with Jacob to discuss JWRD options and strategy.
      2. I continued the OS threads on complexity and next steps with trinque.
    2. Sunday, March 15
      1. I wrote a microblog published in #o that addressed some next steps and questions following the closure of TMSR and discussed in channel.
    3. Monday March 16
      1. I asked the primary question Jacob and I were considering : How will TMSR closure effect Bitcoin and what should we do about it ? Diana Coman helped us realize Bitcoin will continue to Bitcoin without TMSR and it makes sense to continue making it central in our service offering.
    4. Tuesday March 17
      1. I shared what I had of the JWRD sales article. It was identified I was making unnecessary projection and plan to shift to a more direct approach established.
      2. I commented on trilema to thank MP and give notice of postponement of CR visit due to border closure.
    5. Wednesday March 18
      1. I worked on the JWRD sales article.
    6. Thursday March 19
      1. I worked on the JWRD sales article.
      2. In the evening I learned Panama decided to close border to travelers for 30 days, starting Sunday, spent Thursday night into Friday morning discussing my options and deciding what to do.
      3. Friday March 20
        1. Started planning and packing for travels, divided my things into replaceable and irrepaceble.
      4. Saturday March 21
        1. Finished packing and tying up loose ends, left for airport.
      5. Sunday March 22
        1. Crossed border and started settling in VT.
    7. How I changed :
      1. I came to terms with the closure of TMSR and started to map out what I am to do about it.
      2. I took a hard look at my status in Panama and Vermont.
      3. I decided to shift my physical presence for the indefinite future.
      4. While I started strong with the daily reviews, I completely dropped them for several days. This week should have been when I leveraged the tool the most instead of choosing not to.

    Summary

    It's not every week you take a life altering decision. My mindset is to prepare to return to Panama in April, while also preparing to live in Vermont for six months if the border remains closed. Use the leverage I have here to further my progress on the long term goals I have been working to achieve.

    Perhaps it isn't but do note that it's what you do each and every day, day after day that decides the outcome of even such seemingly momentous decisions. And it is indeed true that it's way easier to take even seemingly hard/difficult decisions in the moment/as required by outside events than to abide afterwards by their results.

    Thanks. The process of leaving did involve reflecting on the past several years and how what I did and didn't do lead up to making the decision to leave. I left 8 years ago expecting a crisis and to leave Panama was in part an admission of defeat in preparing myself to live there. With that being said, I re-established communication with my family 3.5 years ago and spent substantial time/energy on building the relationships. To have trust in those relationships is a sign of success.

    The decision was to use the strength of the family and hometown relationships to prepare myself to return stronger and weather the later waves of the crisis there.
