On 1% of My Health...




As I stated in a recent post I've spent the past year or so building and running my company, while that journey is always a great one, I let a lot of things slide, my health being one of them. Before kicking off on this entrepreneurial endeavor I was working out four to five times a week. Most of my workouts were focused on getting stronger so they mostly consisted of lifting a lot of heavy things and capped off with a tad bit of cardio for good measure.

I actually really like heavy strength workouts, I like the feeling of being big, of being strong, I really enjoy smashing a large meal after a heavy workout. Maybe it's a mental block, but I feel that if I'm not lifting heavy or pushing myself in some strength increasing activity I am not getting better. As stupid as I know this sounds, it's a mindset I find myself struggling with.

There Was a Time I Wrote a lot.

There was a time where I wrote a lot. I had multiple weekly columns in various papers or websites. I also contributed numerous stand-alone articles to websites and magazines every month. It was a ton of work, but also very gratifying.

That all started to slow down a few years ago. At the time I was focused on designing and planning a new media company I had the idea for. There always has to be trade-offs. As much as I enjoy writing and having my work published I was excited about the prospect of starting a new company and was willing to make that swap.

I didn't stop all at once, it was a gradual transition over a few months time. As I began to spend more time on the business plan and getting the pieces in place the number of writing gigs I took gradually fell off.

These were tradeoffs I felt I had to make in order to put more time into designing and launching the new business, and they paid off. While I still spend a considerable amount of time building and running my media company I am at a point where I feel I can get back to writing a bit more.

And that is what I envision this blog will be, a chance to write about the things that tickle my mind at the moment. Most of what I write here will be opinion based and much of it will be fairly raw. But It's for my enjoyment, there won't be a schedule of when posts will drop or any reliable frequency. Just the musings of a random guy.

Well, I finally got this first post under my belt. Let's see what happens, shall we?
