My Virtual Diary

It seems that blogging is difficult for someone like me who is always busy. Just to give you an idea of what I currently have on my plate: I’m managing various jobs at work, studying for my professional license exam, managing my investment property, pursuing new contracts at work, spending time with my girlfriend and my family, an officer of 3 professional organizations, managing my stock portfolio, and I’m trying to kick this blog off to boot. Whew I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

Anyway I read an article the other day by Richard Branson (who I’m not necessarily a fan of, and I don’t know much about him beside the fact that he started Virgin); the article said that he replaced his diary with blogging. I never had a diary. But I’ve always had lots of thoughts (most not worth placing pen to paper for).

Nonetheless every so often I do have an idea I wish I jotted down. So from now on when such an idea does occur I’ll post it here, using my mobile phone that way there’s no excuses. Hopefully that’ll help me give this blog the jumpstart it needs.

On Committment

“Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative…there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, providence moves, too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!”

-W.H. Murray (Scottish Mountain Climber and Author)

This is the ideology I live my life by. Anyway, just something I thought of today.
