One of the main focuses of this website is for me to practice my writing, and my cognitive function. With that said, not every blog post will be good, In fact, far from it. But I will trudge on and continue to post, because I simply must. I used to write these posts for Northwest Forge, but that business has grown to the point where it no longer has any use for the writings of a man who is constantly learning.
I'm about three fourths through a cheap bottle of Merlot, and the words are feelings flowy.
Let's get started.
Over the past 2 months I have taken a long hard look at where I am. I am constantly looking for the best tools to live a fulfilling life, and I abandon good tools that I've been using for better tools that I have no idea how to use. This is a problem. If I can't commit to one system, then the data gained from the old system is fruitless. There must be a continuation. We all know the person/business/thing that does one thing really well. It sticks out in our mind with vivaciously. I'm the opposite of that. I'm into too many things. I do too much.
And i don't care.
Life is too short to not be myself, so that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to be Mike and everyone else can take it or leave it.
The delete key has been my friend for some time, and I tend to delete everything I write in keeping with the pointless chase of perfection. I'm abandoning that dishonest venture for a more human one: truth.
I am me and no one else can duplicate that.
I'm a personal trainer, podcaster, helper outer, web designer, and musician. I'm done being polished and fake. I'm going to be me. I'm going to be vulnerable. Because it takes guts, and guts is enough.
