A new chapter

Alright, here we go.

It’s time for some real change.

For most of my 20’s, I talked a good game. I had big ideas. Big plans. Big ambitions. But a lot of them never really came to fruition. I think if you asked most people I know, they would be able to name something I told them I was going to do but never did.

I still did do a bunch of stuff that I’m proud of. I travelled a lot. I started a couple of businesses (briefly). I finally became debt-free.

But if I’m totally honest with myself, I never put 100% effort into anything that I did. I coasted… a lot. So while I still managed to do some things that I wanted to do, there was a lot more I wish I could’ve done, if only I’d just given it a proper crack.

For example, there was a whole lot more travelling I wanted to do but I never got serious about saving enough money, or there was a lot of potential in my business but I never put in the effort to find the clients.

I’m not saying all this to put myself down, though. This is just the realisation that I’ve come to. Hindsight is 20/20, and to be honest, I’m glad I’ve had this realisation, because now I’ve got the chance to do something about it. I’ve just turned 30, and I’m determined not to let another year go by without feeling like I really got the most out of it.

This isn’t just about achieving goals either. It’s also about having fun and having the freedom to do the things that I really want to do because I’ve put real effort into building the kind of life that I want for myself.

So, for me, that’s what this year is about. I’m extremely excited for what the next 12 months hold, and I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences here.

Cheers.
