I love the ‘Here’s to the crazy ones‘  video. Gives me goosebumps to hear Steve’s voice stating something that he lived and believed, in his own way.

I have always felt like I’m supposed to contribute like a ‘crazy one’ but when I look back at the arc of my life, I think my serial lack of discipline has, up to now, kept me from achieving big wonderful things.

So I am rededicating myself to letting out my ‘crazy’. I do take steps in those directions: with the music I’m making with my band(s), with writing…but what’s missing is finishing one level completely, and moving to the next.

I need to navigate my musts: connecting with loved ones far and near, a very busy job, monitoring and working on my health,  improving my Japanese skills, taking care of other obligations, and incorporate the creative work I need to do.

With all of this in mind, I pulled out Chris Guillebeau’s ‘Annual Life Review‘. And in my down time this week, I’ll get started and share whatever might be helpful.

#100wordhabit-this was my ‘one of those days’ and it’s not over yet!

There’s a determined sabatoge-y feeling running grinning savagely under whatever your priorities are. The train to the key meeting is delayed. The communication lines crossed so that your compadre is where you’re supposed to be and you? You are somewhere else entirely. And so the traveling and walking and checking continue.

#100wordhabit – changing my great starter, bad finisher habits

I may have an opportunity to do something that I didn’t look for, wasn’t expecting, but if it happens it will change my life for the better, I’m not joining an MLM or going on a banana-only diet or anything like that.

Because I’m a great starter and a shitty finisher of personal projects, I’m documenting this process as I go. I’m writing in the framework of David Kadavy’s 100words a day project. It’s money-free, but costs time and attention and I think it will help exercise my writing muscle.

Hey, I got to 90!

So, this is the idea: up, do my ablutions, write my 100 words, research and write my newsletter, plan the art I’ll create for the newsletter, do all the things that are necessary to promote the newsletter, work on my artshop, etc etc. No, I won’t be able to do all of this in a 1 hour block in the morning. Yes, I have to schedule this so I get an hour of Japanese study, plus exercise. No, I’m not sure yet how I’ll do it.

But it’s so much fun to try!
