Well, it seems that I get the most productive in Fall/Winter – seeing as I haven’t written in this since this time period last year.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about getting back into this daily journal of sorts. I am embarking on a big life change in the next 8 months, one that will take me completely outside of my comfort zone. I want to share that experience here, even if no one reads it, so I can go back and look at my journey to remind myself how far I’ve grown and accomplished.
I know there are a LOT of hard times ahead and will need some kind of motivation and reminder of WHY I’m doing what I’m doing.
This is me being proactive for once in my life and preparing for challenges that lie ahead.
I also plan to include book reviews and notes about podcasts or videos I’ve listened to, as I recognize that I consume a TON of content, and can barely remember a damn thing about them. I’m hoping that by explaining and reviewing that information that I will remember it better and allow it to have a bigger impact on my life. You know, so I’m not just consuming, consuming, consuming solely for the sake of entertainment.
I’m not sure I’ve expressed this here yet, but I am embarking on a journey to quit my job. I am going to go full-time with my side business of helping online business owners with their marketing. I am working towards being a full-time entrepreneur, as they call it.
Hopefully, this explanation of how I’m planning to do this, along with the struggles and learnings I’ve had can help someone in the future who takes a similar path. If not, it’ll at least be a good reminder of what I’ve been through and how far I’ve come.
P.S. – I guess it’s kind of obvious that I’m doing this as anonymous, solely because my current employer doesn’t know that I have the plan to do this so soon. Will I reveal myself later? I haven’t decided yet — that’ll be something I think about once I actually accomplish what I’ve set out to do.
