If you have spent enough time with me, you are already aware of my heart for entrepreneurship and drive for improvement. These interests motivate the work I do as a consultant which includes process redesign, capacity modeling, portfolio rationalization, organizational redesign and other quality and continuous improvement initiatives. I am also intrigued by new ventures and unaddressed pain points. If you don’t know what most of this is, it’s ok! I don’t plan to blog on it anytime soon. My point is that my desire for continuous improvement starts within me. It sustains my thirst for self-improvement in areas like optimizing my learning, bettering my relationships, and building my faith.
Like anyone else, though, there are improvements that I have neglected for years. Writing is one of those. I have learned that I can only get physically stronger by employing a strength conditioning program. In the same way, I can only improve my writing skills by ticking away at this keyboard. I expect writing will range from boring to intellectually grueling. The same can be said in a physical sense about a workout.
What to expect
It is impossible to predict the subjects of future blogs, and I have plenty of material to write! I am talking to some incredible people doing incredible things to improve their environments. I think that will be a good place to start. We might also compare history with current events, conduct comparative or trend analyses, or perhaps examine workplace cultures, society, and generational differences.
Discovering a message
Given the supportive comments on the few articles I’ve written thus far; I look forward to the challenge. I also want to encourage those who need to find their voice to simply begin. I am no expert (which is why I am writing this), but I have uncovered a few revelations through writing. Whether writing a song, a journal or an editorial, I find writing, editing, and finalizing is often a surprising way to find a message deeply buried in a fog of procrastination. I hope you’ll join me in discovering those messages. I also encourage my readers to share their own message with me.
Now, for the big question
Who’s in?! Through this process, my goal is growth. Plain and simple. I want to grow strategically–mind, body, and spirit. I welcome everyone to join me. I also want to support others, so please tell me how I can help.
In the next blog, I’ll share the promise I am dearly holding on to. You don’t want to miss it!
