INTRODUCTION

6 October 2019

Seeing as though this is my first blog for this site, I thought I would share what I hope to achieve from this site.

As I am sure you have seen from my home page I am about to hit 52. Now I know you are thinking that this is kind of a weird time to be hitting a midlife crisis.

Truth is I have managed to fit a lot of living into my years and have had the privilege of experiencing some pretty amazing things. I have also tried my hand at several strange and interesting things. Perhaps I will share some of these things at a later time.

Moving on to today though, I have had several businesses in my life some did ok and others failed spectacularly. Sometimes it was my fault sometimes it was caused by things beyond my control. However I have never had what I would call major success, I am fortunate enough to be one of those people that are able to do almost everything I put my mind to.

So why are you whining now you might ask, good question. It’s not about whining so much as it’s about taking a step back and reflecting on my life. Why can I do almost anything I set my mind to but I am only able to reach a certain level. And this level is way beyond where I want to be.

I feel like I am only able to rise to the level of my own mediocrity, and then my self-sabotage kicks in. Now these self-sabotaging mechanisms appear to run so deep that I am not even consciously aware of them.

Over the years, I have become a master at surviving. Again, what are you whining about you may ask. Well mastering survival was a fantastic skill to have if you were alive a thousand years or so ago.

I want more though, I have meandered through this life and made many interesting detours yet I have very little in terms of legacy to show for it.

So at the beginning of this year I made a decision to take a serious look at my life and find out what makes me tick and what works for me or doesn’t work for me.

I have decided to document this “experiment” in the hope of finding clarity for myself and as a means of tracking my progress.

I also thought I might not be the only one suffering from, fear, procrastination, brain fog, uncertainty. The list goes on I could probably write an entire book on the feelings, emotions and inaction that arises in me when I think about success and what it means to me.

So, this is going to be a warts and all blog about my journey and what I have discovered and learned to date. I will be sharing tips and techniques that have worked for me and I believe that will work for you.

Join me on my journey and let’s see if we can work this stuff out together.
