As it is that time of year once again I am pondering about my resolutions for the year coming up as I say good-bye to the year that has been. I realize that for the past year, I have not done so great on previous resolutions. So, I say revolutions above kind of tongue in cheek and playing off the recent AT&T commercial, but I also fully realize that most of my current resolutions are really going to be revolutionary in nature. So, without more chatter, I will get going with the New Year and the promise going forward of accomplishing things this year on a grander scale.
Just a quick little post… there are several posting challenges that I am planning on participating in that are of course coming up in the next month or two. Namely there is is the NaBloPoMo that takes place in November (concurrently with NaNoWriMo) and another couple of others that I am going to detail more that are taking place in October. However, the one that has caught my attention more than any other is a 100 Day Challenge for the end of year.
This morning I have had sports on my mind as I was sipping my coffee and eventually having my breakfast. Those moments are long past, but that is what is still on my mind and hence what I am going to blog about. In the past I have done a section called observations – where I have made short observations about a variety of topics, that typically are not a full blog entry in and of their own right. I am returning to that format today in regards to sports.
I had an epiphany just a little while ago about what I have been doing wrong on all the little side business ventures I have gotten myself involved with over the years, with the exception of my farming adventures. I tend to get focused on production types of items, that require a good deal of input, usually my time, to complete the item. And in the end, I have just that, one item that is good to be sold. What most business ventures need to be truly successful though is a product, good, or service that you make once and sell it many times.
First, it should be mostly obvious to the casual reader that I am largely indifferent in regards to Obama as president, neither being supporter by and large nor a rabid anti-Obama-ist that that seeks at every turn for his failure. That being said though, I will have to say that I am severely disappointed in his current bent toward what seems to be a no other option excepting a military strike against in Syria.
A quick celebration is in order. Actually I suppose that there are several that are in order when I get down to it. The first, and perhaps biggest of them being that that sometime in the past week the post counter rolled over the 600 mark. That is a pretty good milestone. In addition, another mark of importance is having gotten back into the swing of things with the blog.
