The 54th Deadline: Next Threshold


The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right.


The next threshold approaches. And I am not just saying that. I can feel it. I can tell. Something about me is changing — for the better — mind you. All of which stems from my proactive measures in regards to improving myself in some shape or form.

But in particular, I have emphasized incorporating a lot of productivity techniques into my daily routine. I have mentioned before about doing stuff like listening to motivational speeches every day. I have been good about this. I have not missed a day yet.

Every element I add to my routine has made me feel better about life as a whole. For me to move forward even further, it is about taking these measures to their next threshold. But how so?

Finding the focus, for one thing, would be an important ingredient to the recipe for success. It is one thing to talk a big game, but executing it is the real challenge.

Upping the Ante

I realize I have continued to neglect this blog, so to speak, for quite awhile. At the very least, I am content with keeping up with the Happy Haiku poems. They are therapeutic for me when I write them. I am not going to claim to be the best poet or anything like that. They just became something random I got into that I managed to stick with for more than half a year now.

However, this was not my original intention with this blog when I started this. Not at all.

I wanted to make this blog the hub for all of my content and more. I guess I still can make this blog the central component by all means, but I need more organization. My lack of focus causes this mess. This is why certain aspects of my game plan has suffered.

I need better direction. I need to hold myself more accountable for what I want to accomplish and see them through until the end.

Perhaps I need to start planning “themed days” again for particular blog posts to force my hand. That worked once before on my previous blog, so I will consider it.

My life has been rough for me these past few years. Though I see light at the end of the tunnel, I still feel like I have a long ways to go.

And this is OK. Life is about the journey, anyway! The next threshold is just around the corner.
