I am a firm believer that everyone should have a (or some) personal project(s) that consume a small percentage of their time. I'm not talking about home projects like cleaning the garage or building that shelf in the utility room. I am talking about side gigs, a passion project - something you enjoy doing outside of your job that already makes a little extra money, or could real soon.
At the writting of this post, I'm fairly certain no one reads these posts anyway. If you somehow stumbled upon this post or this excerpt, I appreciate you. I'm wiriting this post particually to just get started again and map out my plan for where content will belong from this point foward. In this post I share no goals for my future writing; I simply share my new direction and how I plan to syndicate what I beleive is worth sharing.
There are three things that are the most coveted. Ask anyone and you’ll know. More money, More time, More(better) health. Of those three things you can choose what ultimately is the most important.You can prioritize what you will focus on the most. But be careful how you review the progress you make. You may have two of the three locked down, but struggled with the third.
Don't take it personally. It’s just a matter of fact. Sorry, not sorry. I’m a successful mother fucker. Not because I have millions in the bank (I don’t) and not because I’ve built some ridiculous empire (I haven’t). It's because I’m constantly in pursuit of something. A better body, optimal health, and time/financial freedom.
I sometimes have folks around me ask what they should do or how they can get started if they have an idea or want to start building a following online. I’ll never tout myself as an expert in this area but I have gathered plenty of information on the topic and found certain points to be of great value.
Progress, not perfection. Profound huh?... How do we start something new? How do we really start to build new habits? I'll share what has been working for me. I sometimes don't get it though. I'm pretty sure most don’t. This idea of just doing something to get the ball rolling. Usually, before I sit down to start writing a post or program some silly code for something I am working on I have to “be in the zone,” or have everything just right.
I did it again. I can't really tell you why yet, aside from the fact that I just haven't found my groove, 'flow', niche, or even myself honestly. As my domain is name is up for renewal again I realize that I purchased rosswickman.com at the end of 2012. I thought I was a pretty neat bigshot back then. My own name as a domain and just venturing into the wonderful world of entrepreneurialism.
