Detours Along The Way

Many people beat themselves up over not reaching their goals or destination in a certain time frame. This fast food world would have you believe that if you haven’t gotten to your goal that you’ve somehow failed. The thing is that life happens! Sometimes the focus is on keeping a roof over your head or maybe making sure your able to pay your bills. That doesn’t mean that you’ve abandoned your dreams or goals.

Many people still take baby steps at getting their dreams or goals accomplished. It is by planting those seeds that we finally get to the harvest season. It’s very much like priming a pump to bring up water. It’s all those small steps that will get us to our final destination. Sometimes, it’s about attending those networking events. It allows us to learn about more resources around us. Who can help or teach us about skills we will need to learn to make our goals more achievable. What can we farm out, or who can we exchange services with to help us with our journey to our goal.

These detours are not wasted time. They are paths that will help us build toward the next step we need to take on our journey to our final destination. Those side jobs might be helping us to network and build capital for the next phase in our businesses. Sometimes our skills are shared with those around us as a way to balance out our journey. Think of it as a test run to learn about your market place, your future customer. What are those needs? How to build your product better? How to price point it. Being able to see what a competitor brings to the table to allow you to make changes or rethink a product or service.

Meeting people who you wouldn’t normally meet as if by chance; acquiring knowledge that will help you with financial decisions and business models. This isn’t to say you couldn’t have learned it on your own, but the set backs are now minimal compared to what they might have been. It might also be about timing. Sometimes what we have to offer isn’t at the right time. Everything is very similar to planting a crop. There are seasons to everything, especially small businesses. Some small businesses have down times that need to be accounted for. These down times will prevent a steady income if not planned for properly. Next time your down on yourself, remember to look back at how far you’ve come. That also means not always surrounding yourself with people who’ve always played it safe by only working for others.

Apprenticeships in that past and even now are usually five years. That’s because it takes time to learn an industry that you’ve never been in before. It takes time to build a client base. These are ways to build more stability for your future. Just remember, by being around others that have done what you’re trying to do. It shortens the learning curve and brings you to your final destination.

PC the New Buzz Word for Censorship

Fake society trying to school the masses on correct and incorrect behavior and how to think. The down grading of intelligence. The YES movement! Government focusing on creating willing slaves. The suppression of free will and thought. It’s pretty interesting that psychology tells us what the warning signs are for abuse or violence.

Government and Religion have studied the warfare on the enemy and its own citizens for thousands and thousands of years. This theater as it plays out will be very interesting when it finally reaches its final scene. It has been pretty entertaining to see the chess moves of all the players.

I think the most entertaining part is watching the News. There is no way there could possibly be that much drama playing out in a  single day. It’s pretty interesting to watch them read their scripts. There are many actors and supporting actors on this stage. I’m glad to say, I choose to pick my source of entertainment, especially when the actors are so bad at playing their roles.

I’m looking forward to the to the final act. May the show hurry along. I’m very excited to see what this year will bring! I am actually getting excited to see all the lies fall away! I’m especially looking forward to all the shit hitting the fan and watching the rats scurry!

Be sure to make your popcorn and grab a beverage! We’re in the final throes of this play!
