Facebook has tried to ruin my blog but I’m not going to let it win! I have my own existence that cannot be contained by it. I’ve gots to break free of the chains of doing just enough. Just enough to get by. Just enough to be happy. Just enough to be content. Just enough is enough, but I want more now. I know that I can do more with my life and the truth remains, I’ll never know unless I try.
Ideally by my 40th birthday (2.5 years from now), I’ll only be working a couple of jobs teaching English and more of my money will come from writing and photography and motivational seminars. I have what I need to take it to the next level. All I need to do now is implement.
I got another job today. That means that I have about 12 jobs now. 2 of them are not running right now but will start next month. It’s more than enough work. I don’t need a lot of money. I want to have a more independent life where I work less for the same amount of money so I have more time to do what I want to do. I’m happy to be a teacher maybe 10-15 hours a week but the rest needs to be for me.
I’ll be in Edinburgh in 23 days. I plan to take at least 100 photos in 2+ days of shooting, hopefully the weather cooperates.
I’ve done some prep work for my next motivational seminar, this one entitled “Yes You Can!”. It’s going to require work but it interests me. Yes I can!
I’ve got a meeting this week about my website. Ideally by spring I’d have over 50 prints available for purchase in Europe and then in summer find an American printer. I want people all over the world to buy my photographs printed onto canvas and I’m in effect just the middle man. I want to sell things while I’m sleeping.
In the next 3 weeks I’m going to focus on a few things:
*Trying to finish editing my second novel, “Using Toonies” and prepare it as an e-book.
*Focus on the next few weeks of work as they will make the end into February smoother.
Other plans for the spring now include putting together an event for my e-book/photo website that will have my buddy Alex as a DJ.
I’m going to Macedonia and Kosovo next month and New York and Boston in May. I’ll be in California in September. I’ve got plans.
Now this year is about putting all these little snowballs into motion so that by this time in a year I’ll have a few snowballs mashed together into one bigger snowball that maybe can even begin to roll on its own.
