No More “Day One”‘s.

September 27, 2011

It has been quite some time since I last wrote what I was up to, which isn’t a good thing since this website is a privilege and I should not abuse it.  However I shall correct that, or try my best to, and really integrate this website in my day to day like it deserves to be.

Now…

The purpose of this website was to write about the things I don’t know, and how I come about getting to know these things.  Be it a movie, book, or some life skill, I want to talk about it here.  Since April I’ve been all over the place, trying to do too many things at once, and not really accomplishing much.  Two things have changed in my life though, that are making me put my foot down and make sure progress actually happens.

Looking back at all the activities and skills I’ve tackled from childhood to now, I’ve had many “Day One”’s.  You know, you get up, you have a little fire in your eye and you look at the thing you’ve been trying to get better at or learn and declare that you will conquer it once and for all.  “All right, day one, going to do xxxx, let’s go!”.  (A good example of an “update” that would be plastered on someone’s personal site at their favorite social network) Eventually the practice falls by the wayside due to other things in life or just pure laziness, and then something will spark interest again way later and you’re at “Day One” again.

This is not groundbreaking news but I’ve decided this whole “Day One” debacle is a giant waste of time.  Working out for a period and getting somewhat fit, just to regress then start over, is a pain.  Consistency would have granted much better results than trying to perform in bursts.  Again, this isn’t something everyone doesn’t know already.  I mention it though because I’ve made the decision to eliminate the whole cycle because I honestly don’t think I have time for this “Day One” thing anymore.  I’m young yes, but I’ve been at the same point physically and mentally for a while, and I hate stagnation.  I may know a lot more about different bits of tech, skills, and whatnot than I did a few years back, but there aren’t many tangible skills that have come from that.  That needs to change.

The number of the day I’m on right now isn’t known to me, but I have a flow going and I refuse to go back to a “Day One” situation if I have anything to do with it.  I’ll put up a revised itinerary sometime tomorrow.
