This is not a spambot blog post. It’s really me - Al, at 7P Productions. After a long hiatus, I’m posting an update.
Are You Back to Blogging Again?
Sort of. You see, in my efforts to blog about achieving goals and dreams, I was actually getting further away from my own goals and dreams. This blog originally was created to track my journey on becoming a writer, and now I’m picking up on that journey again. We’ll see where this goes.
Why Did You Stop Blogging?
In all honesty, I never really made a conscientious effort to stop. In my last blog entry, I talked about winning some contracts and doing well in spite of the economic downturn. Well, when you show that you are competent with your work, people will expect even more from you. I simply got caught up with all that, and I got very busy, very quick. I was hoping to come back to write about how to be successful in business during an economic downturn (which I may eventually do), but I simply was too busy with all the new contract work that needed to get done.
Quite frankly, I’m glad that I did not write that blog because the truth was that I was actually failing. I lost track of what was really important to me and what my ultimate goals were. My work was consuming my time with family and friends, my stress level increased significantly, and my dreams of becoming a writer kept getting pushed aside. I didn’t intentionally stop blogging, but simply told myself I’ll pick it up again in a couple of weeks or so. However, if I had continued blogging, I would have perpetuated the hypocrisy of achieving goals and dreams. My short term goals were short-circuiting my long-term dream.
Why Are You Blogging Again?
So that my journey on being a writer can start again. So that my goals can be aligned with my dream again. So that the remaining precious days of my life can never be wasted again.
