The Timeline

Yesterday I was feeling a bit nostalgic. I spent a little time looking back at some old pictures from high school and other moments from years past. I could not believe how much things have changed. The styles of clothes. The younger looks that have now become aged and mature. The way of life that has changed as we grew older. I thought back and realized how everything has changed. I thought about how our daily schedules that used to involve my friends and I waking up in the morning for high school and then eventually going off to college and now focusing on working, graduate schools, and our adult futures. The timeline of life is quite extraordinary. It plays back in my mind like a television show. Memories are all that we have left of those youthful teenager days. Some of the moments brought back laughter as I recalled them. Some brought disbelief and regret. At first, I said to myself "Man, I sure would like to go back and do that again". I then realized that everything happens for a reason and all of those experiences were apart of the learning experience called life. I have grown up and matured. I stopped looking back and now looking forward to the next step.

Going All Out

A year ago I had an idea of creating as many media outlets on the internet as I could dream of. The possibilities were endless. I thought of so many new ideas that I wanted to bring to life. Reality set in. One year later, I find these ideas either struggling to gain exposure or still under construction. Many never debuted. I had a headache trying to figure out how to manage all of the sites. I still wanted to move forward with my film projects along with updating and innovating my new websites and projects. I kept the mindset of putting it off until the following day. I realized a year later that I am only human and it would be virtually impossible for me to execute all of my potential projects effectively with updated content. I got so frustrated that I almost wanted to give up. I decided not to. When something goes wrong we must try again. We must re-invent ourselves and try again from a different approach. Instead of operating a series of sites, I will be consolidating a number of my ideas into four or five sites. My original plan was fourteen or fifteen. With more of my energy and attention flowing to fewer outlets, the effectiveness of each site will be greater. I have a plan in mind for a prosperous new year ahead. I plan on going all with several new ideas over time. I plan on being patient with everything and will release everything once it is fully perfected. Last year was the inception. This year was the trial and error period. Next year will hopefully be the solution. The same goes for anyone else with a potential project in mind. Do not give up. Try different approaches until you get the desired result. Have a great day.
