Something Different - A Short Survey About Living Free

I'm on the road most of this week. I'm making a quick trip from West Virginia to central Pennsylvania. From Pennsylvania I'll travel south to the outer Washington, DC suburbs in Virginia near Dulles International Airport to attend the annual Veteran Speakers Retreat. As you may recall, I coordinated and ran this retreat for 12 years. Now, I'm back to simply attending as a participant. When the retreat ends I'll be completing a small project for a long-time client in Fairfax, Virginia.

Finally, I'll head west to Winchester, Virginia (my former hometown) to pick up my tax returns for last year (yes, I'm on an extension) from my CPA, before returning to base camp in West Virginia. It's always a challenge to keep up with blogging when I'm on the road. It's especially challenging when I'll be participating in the events of the retreat and interacting with old and new friends during the course of the long weekend event.

I've decided this will be a great time to do a very short survey. I will appreciate it if you'll take this survey.

It only has three questions, none of them should take longer than a few seconds for you to react to each question and respond by simply marking a button in the rating section of each question. The survey is anonymous. So, please be completely honest when you respond. I'll allow the survey to run for two weeks. After that it will be deactivated. I'll tally the responses and then report the findings here on the blog.

The only purpose of the survey is to gain a better understanding about, you, the reader, to determine how I may be able to provide better content to serve you better.

So, here is the survey and thank you in advance for taking the few moments to respond to the three questions.

It will be interesting to see the results of this.
It would have been nice had you separated all the topics you listed as elements of freedom in the first paragraph. I would think it would be interesting to see how people rate different aspects of freedom in their lives (as compared to their total perceived level of freedom).
As I am sure is the case with most people, in my life, some elements are very free, while others are very restrictive.

Thanks for your thoughts. I will compile the results and publish them in a couple weeks.

I wanted this survey to be quick, simple and easy. I didn't want to burden people with a time consuming process. If I get a good response to this one (typically only a small percentage will actually respond to such a request), I may do some more surveys in the future to explore the individual areas in that descriptive paragraph on the first question.

I appreciate your taking time to make the suggestion.
