Paradigm Shift - Part One

Currently, I am struggling. I have many areas in my personal life that I wish to improve upon. I hope to be a successful and productive person; I hope I am able to use this blog and potentially the support of others who wish to be successful themselves in order to set and reach reasonable goals that will--over time--help me reach a point where I can say I've given it my all.

I'd also like to recognize that I have the potential to do great things. I have a lot of interests, but I haven't found a way to maximize that potential in order to accomplish things that are important to me. I have so many passions, yet I haven't been able to find a set of behaviors to follow that aids me in reaching my goals.

In a sense, this blog is an experiment. I continue to tell myself that this isn't just a desperate attempt at getting attention--a question that could be asked for almost all blogs--but that instead I can use this environment (with which I am very comfortable) as a way of keeping myself accountable, perhaps get some advice from complete strangers who have similar struggles, or whatever else I can get out of it that can be deemed useful, really.

I will make revisions to posts. My writing process is still developing, and the laziness in me never seems to want to do more than one draft before posting to the internet. Maybe I'd be able to illustrate my ideas with more clarity and focus if I'd actually take the time to do so... but I believe my "write it and post it"-strategy will be sufficient for now. If I decide a post warrants a revision, I will do so.

I understand that, at the moment, my purpose for this blog may not be entirely clear. This is fine. Once I get more of an idea of exactly what I want to use this for, I will take proper action. I could easily apply a vague label like "I want to be more productive" to the blog, but the impersonal feelings generated by recycled ideas just isn't going to cut it. Another one of the themes of this blog is original thought; something I'd like to encourage to everyone out there.

More later.

Hello there! I could have sworn I've been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it's new to
me. Anyways, I'm definitely glad I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
