Talking. About Everything.

i love stuff

I like just about everything. I think everything is neat and that everything is fascinating to somebody. One of my favorite aspects to writing articles for the college newspaper was talking to the people who were putting on various events, or who were trying to start a club, or who were behind some sort of …

I Want to Talk About All the Things

i want to do all the things

When most beginners start blogging, all them blogging and social media gurus tell you that you gotta pick something. Nobody likes jacks- and janes-of-all-trades, so you need to pick something and specialize in it and build a community around that one topic you picked. It’s easier that way. It’s easier to attract a community. It’s …

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 …

I Finally Have a File Cabinet!

wooden file cabinet

It was almost a year ago that I set out to purchase a file cabinet for my home office. I have lamented many times about not having quite enough to buy my file cabinet, whether it’s not having enough points, or not having enough money, or not having the time to pick one out. Well, …

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 …

Thinking about Being Awesome, and About Doing It

Lately, it’s felt like I’ve lost identity capital, that I haven’t done or accomplished much over the past few months. I’ve actually completed my SuperBetter quests to be more awesome (it was a very small Power Pack) and I don’t think I’m any more awesome than I was before I started. Granted, I still haven’t …

Structuring My Time, Busting that Routine

Streamlining Your Awesome

Supposedly, there are only two things you do each day: things you like doing/are good at and things you hate doing/are not good at. Streamlining your awesome(ness) means thinking about the things that fall into the latter category and finding a way to do them less or to have someone else do them. As part …

I Don’t Think I Took a Big Enough Risk

As part of my new set of SuperBetter quests to be better at being awesome, I am to reflect on my experience coming out of my comfort zone. Quite frankly, I think I need to this whole thing over because I didn’t take a big enough risk. I need a bigger risk, something that is …

Me and My Comfort Zone

coming out of my comfort zone

I’m pretty much done with using SuperBetter to eat healthier, and as a whole, I think I’ve established a few more good eating habits. I’m conscious of including a fiber-rich food with each meal and of avoiding processed foods since they don’t have fiber (or much of anything when it comes to nutrition). I’ve finished …
