I started yet again another website. I get turned on and excited to start writing about things I like. I get engaged more in life and the regular grind of a labor job doesn’t get me down. I become more turned on and live in the future and am prepared for what is to come. So, why don’t I write on this blog as much as I would like. Because on some level I feel like a fraud when I do. I have gone back and read some real great post that I had written a year ago, two years ago, and I say to myself where is this guy in my life. I want to live the positive words that I write. I love reading and writing inspiring things. I believe them. I just have a hard time putting them into practice. I have become the consumer of good things. It pushes back on me when I do.
Last week I was mowing my lawn listening to a book and thinking about the things that turn me on. The way I feel when the fire is lit. I love to engage with people individually and try to get them to dream bigger or think differently. I love to write fiction, and like this non fiction. I have been coaching soccer for a few years and love leading a team and helping them get better. I love reading business books and thinking about how organizations work and how much their culture and marketing matters. I am inspired by leadership books and stories. Let’s not forget my love of cartoons, comic strips, anime, and anything art related. I tried to put these things together and look at what I could do. I would say I am introvert but I think I am most likely just quiet, and can be outgoing when I need/want to be. I tried to put these things together and all I could come up with is I want to be in a leadership role helping people use their skills and talents to complete a common goal. The area I would like to work in marketing and advertising which would combine my love of business and my love for art.
So, I went about my week trying to figure out how I could get there. How could I prove that I am at least good enough to get my foot in the door. Then the idea popped in my head. I would just write about leadership, marketing and then market that as proof that I could reach an audience and build the online engagement that companies need to sell their products. So, Lead Utah was born.
What does that mean for this site; my personal inspiration. I will be writing more and adding an art gallery, I was toying around with a comic strip, but I don’t have any character that I would like to stick with over the long haul. But I do plan on experimenting and playing with it. I would also like to give you an update on tracking my workout routine. I wanted to quit yesterday. I was at day 157 and I wanted to just throw in the towel and be done. I wanted rest days and the kicker was I wasn’t physically tired. I was mentally bored. I lost sight of why I was working out. I lost sight of my goal. It was right before dinner and I thought “I am almost at a half year, I can’t stop now.” The power of keeping a chain going is so strong that I am going to apply it to my writing and art. The first challenge will be to go 90 days straight. After that I will eventually get to a point like yesterday that I have come to far not to do it.
Until next post.
Yours truly Nino
