My dream is to be an entrepreneur and I have always been inspired by Tynan.
My question to Tynan: What right now sucks up most of your time that can be delegated to someone else?
I'm realizing more and more that I may need to work with entrepreneurs first instead of trying to do everything by myself in my apartment. I'd be willing to help out in any way to get exposure to your awesomeness :)
Always worth a shot Eddy ;). My only problem is I don't have any concrete skills to help people.
I've tried contacting 9 successful people that I admire in the past few weeks. So far I am now in contact with one via email, another one may possibly mentor me in person, and am going to meet another one for a few beers this week.
I figured if I keep contacting people eventually there will be one where I can offer them value of some sort. It takes a lot of misses but that doesn't really matter. I understand a lot of people it just won't work, they are simply busy doing the awesome stuff they are doing and I can't offer them anything that is worth their time.
This is part of an ongoing series. If you haven't read them already, read :
I wrote out this entire post before, and then the computer crashed and I lost it all, so I haven't felt like working on it. Finally, I'm biting the bullet and starting over :
This is quite exciting! I did not plan on starting a blog today but I find the best things in life are those that you stumble upon when you are open. I found this site by way of zenhabits, which is amazing and also found by accident several months ago.
I basically love the philosophies that Tynan and Leo put forward. The idea that anyone can change, if they do it purposefully, and joyfully. Ever since I learned the flute as a young kid, I have understood that practice will create improvement--no matter what the starting point is.
It is a natural time to take stock: my fitness and work habits are fairly strong and I began keeping track of my spending earlier in the year (thanks to some tips from Leo and the book Your Money or Your Life) so I am not worried about that trajectory either. But I am concerned about my eating and sleeping habits. I also want to take more time to reflect, meditate and stretch. Finally, I want to be way more productive. I strongly believe that better organizational skills will create a lot more peace and less work in my life.
My concrete plans: Eat more fruit and veggies and feed my kids more fruit and veggies too (3 servings minimum). Sleep more (8 hours). Do yoga and a few minutes of meditation every morning (10 minutes).
As for the bigger-picture issues such as productivity/organization and reflection, I am not going to make a concrete plan at this moment. I have to save something for future blogs.
