I’ve been thinking in ways that I’ve never thought before, life has changed for me and lately I’m in a constant state of flux.
Last year, I wanted to accomplish certain goals and change my lifestyle all around. I was only partially successful!
I was successfully in accomplishing measurable goals like weight loss and financial goals.
I was unsuccessful in change my lifestyle in a meaningful, productive or challenging way.
I’ve discovered that when I establish a plan, historically something always blocks me in my progress. This year I was full steam ahead and making great progress when BAM, I got vertigo like symptoms that I’m still fighting to a certain extent. I’m bending around the health problem, but it’s still taking a toll on my plans!
Another way that I’ve changed is that I no longer see just one or two ways, but instead I see an issue from multiple directions and angles. I believe I’ve always seen a few multiple viewpoints, but now I see even more and from different sociology-economical viewpoints. I’m not sure if I like it, but I also have come to believe that no one answer is right, but also that there are solutions that are statistically prone to a higher probability of success.
On the investing plain, I’ve discovered that often times, I won’t be able to predict what is a hit or miss. Take texting for example, when it first came out I thought that it didn’t make sense, but now I find myself even using the medium. How that for a kick in the pants!
Another thing is Facebook. While I understood the appeal, I thought some things were better left in the past, but to my surprise others don’t seem to think the same as I. I do think that it’s funny that a lot of people get arrested because they post their pictures or videos of crimes they committed on their Facebook account. While I have a personal account, I don’t use it much because I value my privacy. It’s a choice, no right or wrong way about it.
While I like writing about financial tips and tricks I’ve discovered and about my journey to financial independence, lately I thoughts are all over the place and it’s making it hard for me to concentrate on the niche that I enjoy so much. Hopefully in 2013, my mind will settle and my health will return!
If I remain healthy, I’m hope to be able to bring more value to online environment by creating useful online applications (we’ll see).
Congratulations everybody for surviving 12/21/2012, in some ways it was the end of the “old” world. Here is to the new world! Make you mark!
