I just concluded a lengthy project and I’m coming down off the adrenaline rush of the satisfaction of meaningful work. Have you ever experienced that feeling? There’s this glow about you. People are curious as to why you’re so happy and they’re so miserable. They’re saying, “I’ll have what he’s having.”
You take off on a journey with an end game in mind (unintentional plug 😉 ) that’s specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound (also known as SMART goals.) During the process, you learn a lot about yourself, and the ones that joined you for the ride. When it’s over, you reflect. I’m in reflection overtime.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been in the mood to write anything of significance. I’m, as they say, just chillin.
My original goal, since jumping into the blog pool, was to write something, anything, no matter what, every seven days. Though, I made myself a promise. I wasn’t going to get all tied up in knots if I missed a week every now and then. Never beat yourself up; it’s just not worth it.
So, let’s take a look at the archives. You might enjoy a sampling of a few of my faves:

Maybe none of those posts rings your bell. As they say, when the student’s ready, the information will appear. What’s most important to you right now?
Shift your eyes to the margin and pick a blog category that lights you up, or makes you squirm in your seat.
I hope you find “the post” that gives you some movement. If not, what would you like me to write about? Make a comment or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Two more things. I encourage you to enroll and receive my weekly posts for free. It’s a piece of cake. Register by email or RSS.
Second, help me spread the word and pass this blog link to your circle of influence. Maybe they’ll read one sentence that creates a shift that leads to them to a win!
For now, I’m off to the golf course to relax, reflect, and have fun.
