I have a lot of goals and aspirations. I've always had a ‘side project’ in the works one way or another. One of the reasons nothing much has ever come of any of them is I sabotage myself.
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.
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.
A few years ago I started hearing things about how important it was to network. Statements like “connect with people” and “it’s not what you know but, who you know.” We’ve all heard that one before and I have to say that it seems to reign true. More recently I hear this quote thrown around quite a bit. You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. –Jim Rohn
Growing up I hated reading. I wasn’t good at it so I avoided it at all costs. There likely was an actual learning disability there. In all honesty, I’m pretty sure I graduated high school with about a 6th-grade reading level. I never read any of my assignments, somehow cheated on my literature reports and just snuck by. I seriously never read a whole book cover-to-cover until I was out of college. Couldn’t remember what I just read anyway so what was the point?
I've been gone awhile. I reset everything and here's why. This year start off like every other year previous. I set goals and resolutions, or whatever you want to call them, but this year was different. In past years, I set out to achieve something, build, create, deign, you name it. 2014 started off by me saying ‘yes’ to every opportunity which was quickly railroaded. 2016 was the year of 'resetting,' and then creating lots of content.
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.
