Balance is a misunderstood tactic and strategy that my mentors taught me to define the way successful men always have. In turn, I pass it on to who I am guiding towards success. On its surface, it’s perceived as the need to be “well rounded” or even worse, a “Jack of All Trades and Master of None”. -> Master ONE!
I was covered in a slimy, warm, living caul that I greedily devoured, and happily excreted through my pen after being shat out by the beast of grammar and punctuation that I’ve sacrificed my time to!
Every Man Wants To Be Free, Until He Has To Do The Things Men Must Do To Free Themselves! I freed myself from the gilded cage of faux “Job Security” because it has never existed for anyone I have ever known. I work for myself. My good name and reputation are the only things I have ever needed for true job security.
Being a Freelancer and Digital Nomad isn’t just for people traveling the world. I know quite a few successful people who work from home and use the internet as a secondary, supplemental, or only source of income.
I have helped quite a few friends get started writing; I show them the easy part first. That’s how to set up WordPress or how to Podcast. It takes an hour to learn, maybe a few more minutes if I didn’t explain well.
The hard part comes later, after the first few posts/articles/podcasts are published. We all have 4-5 great stories in our heads. After that, we have to dig. The writing process is easier now than it ever has been in the past.
For me its Blacksmithing, for you it may be painting, building car engines, carpentry, or pottery. Whatever it is, take on a task that leaves you with something you can sign your name to and be proud of. Even if it’s ugly! I’ve made a lot of ugly knives, but I treat them all with the same love and respect as I sharpen and shine them. I never sell them or make them for money. Instead, I give them to special friends who I want to have a priceless gift, or trade them to friends for other things they have made with their own hands. Whats made is always valued more than what’s bought!
To be a Man you have to be a predatory learner. A Mans mind must eat like the shark, always moving and looking to devour. A basic rule is to read at least one non-fiction book per month. If you read a second book, read whatever you like. Your reading a non-fiction book is like finishing your vegetables at dinner before your parents allow you to eat dessert. Remember
I’ll kill two birds with one stone this time, The Science and The Art.
Just like an ocean of colors on the canvas, I’ve created an ocean of colorful people who blend together well while keeping their own unique vibrancy.
I call it creating the ocean I swim in. Meltdown in 5…4…3…2…1 ~>
