Yesterday I looked at the date of my last post here and cringed. It’s been over three years. It’s worse than looking at the scale on January 1st – and yeah, I’m going to start eating right tomorrow and I really mean it this time.
But my writing habit had fully disappeared. It’s more painful and hypocritical when I’m urging our home-schooled daughter to sit down and write. Anything. While I read the latest indignation on Slate because I needed to keep up with these things.
But it hasn’t been all shouting politics and sports reviews for the past three years. I’ve started a firm called Somerset & Church that builds custom, simple to use software for big and little data and I’ve been learning (at least that’s what I keep telling myself what my ever-present frustration and failures are – “learning”) how to sell, how to explain what I do and why it matters.
And that has taken me from thinking and writing about the elements of elite performance and here I am, getting back behind the keyboard. No one has been waiting, and I’m quite sure no one will be listening now, but I’ll do it anyway. I’ve got a list of topics about performance, some personal challenges that I’m going to set for myself and talk about and if you’ve want to take a shot at me, my topic or have a better idea, let’s hear it.
And yeah, going to clean up the website too. I know, it’s a bit of a mess.
