Self Improvement

Let’s talk about fixing ourselves. Here we can look at some of the things that affect us every day and learn to make our lives better through critical thinking and self analysis. Sharing our experiences and thoughts with others is the best way to get from where we are now to where we want to be!

A Brave New “Detail-oriented” World

I struggle with the small things. My brain tends to focus much more on the big picture or overall plans rather than all of the little things that go into make something happen. There just isn’t enough patience in me to get proactive about details, yet somehow I’ve always been stuck in jobs that require…More

Great Expectations…and Being Ok With Not Meeting Them

The world today is full of idealists. Most people have a grand idea of how they want their lives to turn out and a vague plan on how to get there, but very few of us end up living out the dreams of our youth. It is a mathematical truth that in a world of…More

Men vs. Women: Emotional Stress

Men are from Mars; women are from Venus. At least, that’s how the popular saying goes and sometimes I begin to wonder if it isn’t true. We have so much in common with each other because of our human nature, but the minute differences in the biology and societal expectations of the genders causes so…More

Dealing with Crunch Time

I’ve intimated a few times in the past that I struggle sometimes with coming up for topics to write about on this blog. It was a bit easier this morning because I had something happen to me, which I wrote about here, but most days I either have to wait for something to come to…More

Sometimes Life Just Wants to Test You

It was not a good morning today. As per usual, I woke up with just enough time to get myself dressed and do my basic hygiene routine before shooting out the door to work. It started out pretty well, but it didn’t last very long. For personal reasons, my morning routine has been somewhat altered…More

Personal Post: An Inability to Focus

I’ve spent most of my life struggling to figure out what to do with it. I’ve had a lot of dreams and aspirations for things I might have done along the way, and I’ve been lucky enough to have some unique experiences that most people never get an opportunity to have. From riding on a…More

Working Outside Your Comfort Zone

I’ve been in a recent article that I’m a 90’s kid. This means that I grew up when the computer revolution was really hitting it’s peak. I can remember back to my early days with things like five inch floppy disks and big, heavy CRT monitors. My favorite games were Doom and Heretic and Master…More

Punctuality is a Pillar of Success

Time is very much like an enemy. It is ever present and ever dangerous. A constant sense of pressure weighs down on us any time we really think about it. There is never a point in our lives in which time is on our side. It is always working against us, whether biologically or socially…More

Understanding Your Habits

Those readers who follow and read my blog on a regular basis might have noticed that I don’t post quite as regularly as I did in the very beginning. There are a few reasons for this, most of which are rationalizations for the primary reason. I could say that I prefer this or it would…More

Living With Irrational Fears

There are certain things that we all are afraid of. Physical injury or death are near the top of the list for just about everyone, and I’ve always heard that public speaking is most people’s absolute number one fear. However, some of us struggle with other fears that aren’t so normal or logical and it…More
