[as yet untitled]
A blog type thing
Hey everyone! Welcome to [as yet untitled], my blog about all things…well…me I suppose. At least all things I think are worth publicly chronicling.
I’ve always wanted to journal. And I’ve always sucked at it. My brain is one of those brains that never shuts up, and follows every tangential pathway it can, so the slow, laborious process of handwritten journaling has never proven viable.
Similarly, typed journaling has never really worked because I will always find an excuse not to do it.
But public accountability has always worked for me, be it the public accountability of a small group or the world at large (or rather what infinitesimal slice of it pays attention to my own, even more infinitesimal slice of it). So maybe if I commit to shout at a void that might have a receptive or, even more excitingly, eagerly awaiting, ear or two, I’ll stick with it.
I’d like to dedicate this to covering insights I’ve gathered throughout my career as an actor and businessman for two reasons:
1. Putting stuff on paper, or out into the digital ether, makes them “real” in a way. It makes them stick. Maybe if I start saying what I’ve learned, I’ll actually start taking my own advice.
2. I hope that, in some small way, it’s helpful to someone who needs it. I can really only speak from a place of “what works for me,” as the last thing I want to do is presume that what I’ve discovered to be a viable business or life strategy is universally applicable and in so doing ignore the life circumstances of those for whom said circumstances would nullify the validity of my methods. If it helps you, I’m really happy for you. Truly. If it doesn’t, my only wish is that something, somewhere down the line does.
I have a few ideas for future discussion topics, maybe even for recurring segments reserved for topics I’m quite passionate about, but for now, I think writing this post is milestone enough. Here’s to a long and happy career that affords the security we need to pursue what fulfills us, for both me and any potential reader. Because we’re worth it. #treatyoself #responsibly
