Failure

     Now that the new year is here I have been busy cleaning out 2014 files, setting up 2015 files, deleting all of the junk emails that I've been procrastinating doing and setting my goals for the year. As I do this I realize that this year is going to be a pivotal year for me, it has to be. I am nowhere near where I want, or need, to be in life. I'm 42, separated (that story to come in a future post) and not where I need to be professionally. Which has made me do a lot of thinking. I had watched a show on Yahoo called Failure Club, produced by Morgan Spurlock. Most may remember him from the movie Supersize Me. Failure Club followed and documented the story of seven people who chased their goals for a year. Each having their own specific goal that they had always dreamed of achieving but never had. As far as I know, it only aired for one season. Which I find sad as it is not only a great concept for a reality show, especially compared to the Reality Shows that they air on television, but inspirational to others to chase their dreams. This year is going to finally be my "Failure Club" year. I will admit, I have coasted through life. I have always had lots of dreams, goals, and ideas but have found myself failing not from trying, but from "not" trying. Part of the reason for me starting this blog is the fact that I have always wanted to do this but never have. Perhaps by sitting here at my desk writing out random thoughts will help motivate me to reach my goals. If I fail, then at least I can fail knowing that I tried rather than by doing nothing. Regardless, I have to do something. The past is the past for a reason. As of January 1st, 2015 life starts over for me. Time to push the reset button. Life starts now an I'm going to make the best of it.
