Annie Mueller describes what she is serious about.

I’m already immersed in my own life, and that’s what I’m passionate about. I’m serious about doing work I enjoy and doing it well. I find that passion has very little effect on that, one way or the other; discipline, focus, curiosity, and low tolerance for bullshit, on the other hand, are immensely helpful.

I would like to believe that I'm serious about the same thing.

Doing work I enjoy and doing it well.

My current work is in warehousing and shipping. I enjoy it. I enjoy getting people to be part of a team and to focus in on a goal and execute the process to meet that goal. I'm not passionate about it. If I was passionate about coaching I wouldn't be in the 3rd part logistic business, I'd be in the coaching business. And, honestly, I don't think I have my shit together enough to be in the coaching business.

Seth Godin writes about disappointment

The opportunity is to find someone to delight and to embrace the fact that someone is not everyone.

He's not wrong. Somebody is probably going to be disappointed. On the other hand, Somebody might be delighted.

Focus on the positive rather than the negative.


I don't try to post long, well researched, and in depth blog posts here. Partly because I'm not good at that, but mostly because I don't want to. And this is first and foremost, my little personal space on the world wide web. So, I gets to do what I wants to do here.

Rebecca Toh summed it up pretty well in her post nobody cares

And while they are here, they can choose to linger for as long as they want to or move on, but what they will never feel is the pressure to engage.

Anyway, this blog and website is more for me because I want it to be here.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a look around. Linger, or don't. It is really up to you.

This piece speaks volumes to me.

Trying to break out of habit and routine to create new habits and routines is like finding freedom that you didn't know you had.


I'm not sure what my favorite quote is. I will need to think about that one.

There are some really good quotes in the replies to Tina's tweet.

Including the one I just shared from Andrew Weatheraqll.

Rob Macfarlane used to do a Word of the Day on twitter.

His word for Wednesday January 17th, 2018 was Apricity

the warmth of the sun on a winter's day

It's a complicated word for a complicated feeling.

Personally, I like the definition better than the word.

The warmth of the sun on a winter's day, sounds better than Apricity. The phrase flows better, has more feeling, is more descriptive, than just a word.

I do miss his Word of the Day. Maybe it will return soon.

A new year, like a new life, can fill a person either with hope and optimism or angst and dread. But regardless of how I face the future, time will march forward. I’ll make my way, sometimes easily and sometimes ploddingly. I’ll stumble and fall and pick myself back up, and sometimes—maybe even most times—getting back to standing will take a whole lot longer than I anticipate.

I started to argue with this paragraph when I finished the first sentence. Then I continued reading. I don't like splitting everything into either this or that designations. Reality isn't binary. It's almost never black and white. There might be right and wrong answers to some things, but the majority of what we see is full of ambiguity.

I'm glad Erin Boyle expanded on that first sentence because I feel pretty much the same.

But regardless of how I face the future, time will march forward.

Indeed it will.

And maybe we can share some of the same memories. I’m not sure if that’s enough for me, but it has to be. It has to be enough. Because he’s not going anywhere. And neither am I. We’re in this together.

I can not imagine the pain.

I can not fathom the willpower.



I do this daily I'm my job and it never ceases to amaze me that people think I know what I'm doing.
