First, let me wish everyone all my best for a Happy and Healthy New Year! It’s crazy to think that 2019 is even a year, sounds more like those old science fiction novels (ok I’m 53, I know that’s old).
Many people ask me every year if I do anything exciting, and usually the answer is no. There are a few reasons……a) It’s amateur night for drunks, so I don’t want to be caught on the road and b) I live in a rural area, so there’s no night life to speak of here. I would have to drive at least 45 minutes to go somewhere sort of interesting. There’s always the casino, but we know how that’ll turn out!
Instead, I was planning my “year”…..goals, ambitions, dreams, etc.. I want 2019 to be the “Year of Captain Sweatpants” meaning that I want this year to be the year I can give up my day job and do this full time. I have been able to learn a ton in the past 3 months and I’m seeing results!
It can be done, but it won’t be easy. It takes a lot of work, planning, prepping and learning from those more experienced, but I’m putting in the effort and it’s paying off. I have to keep the momentum going and not get distracted by any negative forces out there. I hope to help others as well as I learn, paying it forward per se, that’s the real payoff.
So when you ask, “Hey Dan did you do anything exciting last night?” I can respond with, “I sure did, I was creating my plan to take over the world!” which is a lot better than that guy just waking up at 1pm wondering what happened last night.
