Blogging is dumb. When asked what I really thought of posting my thoughts online, this was my kneejerk answer. Give me a person with an actual name to chat with, a person that makes faces as they react to what is being said, a person that I can bounce ideas off of and make smile. That’s what I like. None of this… this writing into the void, this one-sided conversation that is one step away from having an imaginary pen-pal. But that was just my kneejerk answer.
The thought behind writing this blog, so dramatically titled Adventures in Entrepreneurship, has to do with a future person that will eventually be me. At this moment this person is totally imaginary (and quite the witty blogger, I might add) but much further down the road… but waiting. It is waiting for me to learn, to go through the trials, and experience the tribulations, but really it is waiting for me to get some very important work done. Essentially, it means that I have to live a little more and that this process of reaching my future self is worth a couple blogs here and there to document the journey.
So why Adventures in Entrepreneurship? Because adventures are awesome, that’s why. Who doesn’t like an adventure? The entrepreneurship part come into play simply because that’s what I want to be- again, we are talking about that future self. Currently I am on a pathway to management in a business that is constantly adding to whatever meager skillsets I currently possess. Meager. What a good word- and apt too, for I am constantly finding something else to get better at as I learn what it takes to manage others and drive a successful business.
And this is when I wrap it around and address my first statement of “blogging is dumb”, because hopefully, somewhere in this nutty blogosphere there might be someone that might glean a nugget of truth in my ramblings, find a brief shine of wisdom in my blunderings, or a smidgeon of humor in the lessons I have learned and take a step toward their better, wittier, future self.
A great man once counseled me on blogging and gave me some advice, “Throw in a list. Blog readers love that stuff.” Taking that sage advice I now present some tips to achieve a better future self which ultimately leads to greater success in business, based on my personal experiences and thoughts. Obviously, this would be a horrible title so instead I will spice it up.
