Interesting. I am almost always in the Crazy Maker quadrant. I've been taking the GTD-Q test off and on since 2009 or so. I've been in the Crazy Maker quadrant 15 times, Captain and Commander 7 and Responder once. For me Crazy Maker happens all the time because I have many varied interests. I work for myself so I am CEO, CFO, Shipping, labor etc. etc. etc all at once. I program computers, spin yarn, weave, knit, quilt, sew and make scrapbooks. I take photographs, have dabbled in pen and ink drawings watercolors, oil pants, chalk pastels and naalbinding,. I can play recorder and French horn but haven't done anything musically for years. I'm interested in history, read science fiction, crime novels and techno thrillers, love genetics and am involved in local food and organic and alternative agriculture. I enjoy shooting sports and have hunted and fished when I can. I enjoy talking about medieval armor and space cities sometimes with eh same person and in the same conversation. I've enjoyed travel when I've done it and would like to do more. I serve on 2 boards of directors, one our local ditch company and one a sheep association. I am active in local and national politics, writing letters, attending meetings and generally working to try to further the goals I consider important.

My goal is to try to get closer to Captain and Commander more of the time. I'd love to feel I am not falling behind with more things to do that I have time to do them in.
So to get there, what are the secret dreams you have now or had as a kid on what you wanted to be? What hobbies do you enjoy now or think you might enjoy? What is the one thing you never did as a child that you wanted to? Can you do that thing now? Brainstorm the wild and crazy off the wall scenarios and then see if there are elemenets in there you want to actually do.
