Calm Before The Storm

What is the proper demeanor when staring down the barrel of uncertainty? Making unpopular decisions seems to be a very popular thing to do these days. I think it takes just as much, if not more courage to fail, as it does to succeed. I cannot emphasize enough how important communication is to making anything work be it success or failure. Proactive communication is what has gotten me this far and the story is far from over. Sit back, strike up a Pall Mall, and enjoy the show. I am learning things everyday. Things I never even knew I was supposed to know, things I would not even have cared about 3 years ago. Renascence man ladies and gentlemen...Renaissance Man.

Torn and Broke Not Broken

As I ramp into 2009 I find myself reflecting on times when I had a total lack of responsibility and capitalized on every opportunity to act out in the face of social and moral standards. Now here I am all grown up and living in uncertain times and it completely reminds me of my younger days. Only this time I have all this responsibility and commitments. Usually being stuck in a life rut I would have circled the wagons rallied the troops and headed to the bar for a night of debauchery and mayhem. Now things are more complicated and it leaves me asking this question about how to maintain the feeling of being young in the face of some many unknowns and commitments? Sure I could throw it all away and become a bum, but I don't think it's my nature. Maybe this blog is a vent. Choose which side you're on.
