It was September 2016 when I realized that I wanted to run in a marathon. It was something that I had thought about over the past year or so. On or about this day I decided that I would commit to doing it. The race I decide to run was the annual Marine Corp Marathon.
So I started looking into what I needed to do in order to make it happen. One of the first things that I learned was that September is too late in the year to enter the Marathon for the most part. In fact, I learned that it’s something that you need to sign up for in March. And even then, there were no guarantees because it is a lottery system. Continue reading “marathoner”
I’ve mentioned before that I was going to return to consistent writing on this site and I meant it. That was three months ago. Life has been busy but good and full of education over the last few months.
I want to share what I’ve been doing, what I am working on today and plan to do going forward.

Working On Now

I wrote a post almost one year ago about how I stopped writing consistently. Here I am almost one year later with a similar post for the same reason. I stopped writing consistently. I think consistent writing is very important, therapeutic and increases productivity.
Again as before, I didn’t stop because I was not dedicated. In that year I have had success building a productized services company while consulting – albeit at a reduced capacity. I also trained for and completed the 2017 United States Marine Corp Marathon. This did cut into some of the time I previously had set aside for writing but that is no excuse.
There have been some new challenges. For example, because the productized business has scaled, I am now hiring and delegating management task which is something new for me and a bit different than delegating non-management repetitive tasks. Once again, this did cut into some of the time I previously had set aside for writing but that is no excuse.
I think a part of the challenge that I find now is pivoting and reorganizing my day so that I have time to write. I decided to post this to break out of the writing slump by writing something. This time I expect to do more consistent writing.
