I Was Distracted with Poker This Week

I realized about a week ago that WSOP.com is livestreaming the final tables of many of the events taking place this summer, which took away my attention from writing on the blog. Of course, this is something I learn about at the END of the WSOP, when many of the events are already over. Fortunately, …

My New Merit Badge Quest

Josh McCoy, 14, made headlines earlier this month by earning all 135 Boy Scout merit badges. It took him three years to get them all, ranging from American Business to Woodwork, from Disabilities Awareness to Pioneering. He isn’t the first to accomplish this feat (252 Boy Scouts have also accomplished this in the organization’s history) and …

All The Things I’ve Stopped (Part 3 of 9)

things that i've stopped

For the third part in this series, I’m going to evaluate my 50 blog post topics list. I wrote this list so I wouldn’t get stuck with writer’s block and stop blogging. I didn’t like the blog post ideas that I was coming up with just so I could get a post up, so I …

All The Things I’ve Stopped (Part 2 of 9)

SuperBetter

I’m going to bet that a few people thought that I failed at finishing this blog series, much like the projects that are going to be mentioned in this blog series. But that is not the case! I did want to finish the Blogging Heroes blog post before continuing with the series, and I got …

All The Things I’ve Stopped (Part 1 of 9)

the streak has ended

Ever since my blogging streak ended, I’ve thought about all the things that I said I was going to do on this blog. With the exception of one or two, I stopped doing all of them within a few months. Besides the blogging streak, there was only one other endeavor that ended in a matter …

1st Post of the New Year!

Happy 2014!

Happy New Year! Last year, I pledged to blog every single day, and that lasted about a month. Ever since then, my blogging has essentially been a series of fits and starts. I do it for a week or two, only to run out of time, ideas, or both. Even with my 50 blog post …

Why Am I Here?

why am i here

And How to Figure Out Why You’re Here Too I picked up a book from the library called, Hacking Your Education: Ditch the Lectures, Save Tens of Thousands, and Learn More than Your Peers Ever Will. It’s kind of obvious from the title what it’s about. I’ve read a few snippets here and there, and …

Setting My September Goals

thinking about being awesome

I know it’s a bit late to do this, but better late than never. Part of what it means to be awesome is to set goals, to create action plans to meet those goals, and then actually meet those goals. I’m going to set myself for awesomeness for the rest of the month, and eventually …

Small Change in Plans

change in plans

I know I’ve changed my plans, like, 550 times (545 of those times were plans that were never started), but this is the 550th time that I am changing my plans regarding this blog. I can’t guarantee this is the last time I’m changing my plans, but that’s what’s happening. My former business coach wouldn’t …

This Week’s Questions Absolutely Suck

the questions are questionable

It’s probably a little fortuitous that I didn’t answer any questions from last week because this week’s questions are absolutely abysmal. Some of the US questions are out of left field, the international questions are somewhat interesting, but incredibly difficult to tackle if you don’t know anything about what’s going on. Which I don’t, so …
