Turning 30

Random Observation/Comment #565: “It’s all downhill from here…” ~All my friends My 20’s was basically a test of goals, time, and relationship management. Goals management is your mission, vision, and true North towards your ideals of success. Time management is the organization and prioritization necessary for executing and delivering those goals. Relationship management is making the connections and building a...

[30 Day Challenge] 30 Accomplishments

Random Observation/Comment #462: Be proud when you complete any project that takes more than 6 months of planning. That’s a substantial amount of time! It’s basically 2 semesters worth of normal college classes where you learn a quarter of all the education you’ll need to start working full time. Why This List? I think we often take for granted our...

365 Day Challenge

365 Day Challenge

Random Observation/Comment #400: I’m always surprised at how a positive attitude can change everything. Also, Yay on 400 posts! Just as with all New Year’s Resolutions, this one is going to be a sweeping declaration. Hopefully, this time, I will not fill half of the days as “exception days” as I usually do with my 30 day health/diet challenges.  Most...

Reflecting on 2011

Reflecting on 2011

Random Observation/Comment #268: Life is not about finding meaning, it’s about making meaning.  Today should be an improvement from yesterday and this year should be the best year of my life.  “Always forward.” Quote of the year. Last year, I: visited Puerto Rico, Las Vegas, Munich, Schliersee, St Kanzian, Vienna, Barbados, and Russia; started a zipcar rental to do one-day...

Reflecting on 2010

Reflecting on 2010

Random Observation/Comment #252: Writing these year-end reviews always put me in such a good mood.  It enumerates and puts meaning to my accomplishments.  It gives me a burst of motivation to complete my goals list.  It lets me reevaluate my progress and recreate a new list of things to do the next year.  It gives me at least a direction...

My Skydiving Experience

My Skydiving Experience

Random Observation/Comment #244: Everyone should go skydiving. I’m afraid of heights and I still did it. Of course, the guy just pushed me off after I was screaming like a little girl, but whatever… I made it.

My Mid-year Review: Needs Improvement

My Mid-year Review: Needs Improvement

Random Observation/Comment #243: I spend a lot of time re-evaluating my life and making sure I can: 1) look in the past and nod approvingly at my decisions, 2) predict the future career steps so I can nod approvingly at the image of myself in the future, and 3) follow my routine to make sure it has a happy balance...

The Social Butterfly

The Social Butterfly

Random Observation/Comment #240: Every event is a networking event.  I’m not the typical engineer with pocket protectors, protractors, and graphing calculators available in my utility belt (although my phone, can do all of those).  I rather wear a smile and chit-chat about random things to work on a closer relationship (Relater on StrengthFinder!).  Some people say it’s a waste of...

Setting Up New Goals

Setting Up New Goals

Random Observation/Comment #218: Rejection is a terrible thing, but it’s definitely part of life.  Any excuses I give for my role in the situation will never be enough to ease my mind.  I’m not sure if it’s the disappointment in myself for not being able to think quicker or act sooner (or later), or if it’s just self-pity and self-loathing,...

Goals, Aspirations, Dreams, and Fantasies

Goals, Aspirations, Dreams, and Fantasies

Random Observation/Comment #111: Ambition and curiosity drives me.  I’m not exactly an adrenaline junkie looking for the next extreme sport to almost die from, nor am I a millionaire thrill seeker spending all of his money experiencing crazy things; I am just a man with goals, aspirations, dreams, and fantasies.  Many of the goals are very short term and involve...
