Consistency has a consistent knack for breaking stride against the changes of life, and there in lies the dangers we under-go in using cell phones wth notifications turned on.
When we no longer orchestrate the act of conciousness, we become acted upon by conscious forces. And when your plans and goals are second to what interrupts or distracts you; where do you think you are going? It is obviously not your goals and dreams, that’s for sure.
If there is one thing you do to change today it is to turn off notifications on your devices:
Just finished my edits for my book, moving now to pre-publishing preparations.
Just finished Relentless Solution Focus. moving now to the solution side of the mental chalkboard.
Just finished typing up my game plan, moving now to sharing it with you for show-and-tell.
The Game Plan
The Game Plan 2022/03/05
My purpose: to strive towards greatness, and to encourage others to do the same in their lives
My priorities: my art, family, and business
Vision of self image: I have just finished my writer’s work for the morning and I can hear my family is outside playing and helping my family with the farm work. I go out and help them for a few hours until it is time for breakfast. After I go to my desk to address some details with my publisher, they are excited to work out the last details for the book tour they have lined up after the recent “Best Seller” list in the New York Times featured my latest novel, “When the sea lays still.” I also work out a few details with my team on how we need to move forward with recent issues that have come up in our operations; nothing urgent, just exciting developments that need to be handled. I close up my office time by checking and setting any orders I want to play in the market with the success of my strategy so far and I close up my office notebook feeling content. For the rest of the day I attend to my children’s endeavors, making sure the house is in order for some family and friends, which visit regularly to our farm house. The night ends with the family in bed and my wife and I talking about our up-coming mini-retirement to the Falklands. As I fall asleep there is a profound sense of peace.

I highly recommend you get your current game plan typed up if you can; getting it printed works too.
The key is seeing it everyday – because when you point your momentum in the direction you focus on, don’t be surprised when you end up there.
Below is an apt comparison, I write for people on the right.
Where will it be monetized?
UPDATE: I am halfway through implementing my pen edits for my first novel and I anticipate having it available for purchase by March 15th, 2022
Update: the book has seen an editor and is being read by a private audience. While I wanted a March 15th debut, this process is not to far from being complete. The cover illustration is nearing its final draft and we are excited release more information soon.
Update: After the book went through a private audience, it was decided to continue moving towards publishing the novel – but with clear lessons learned. As the work on the book was set down for some time while others were providing their talents to it, I became immensely busy working on other projects. Unfortunately, this meant that the book was going to be stalled for publication again. At the present moment, it is quite clear that this is more of a blog post…
So with that, I hope you and I both have a clearer picture of why I keep writing, who I am writing to/for, and where this blog is headed.
