Keep it Simple

May 25, 2013 I never worked 9-5. Even the smell of an office building makes me queasy. As a boy, I posted pictures of calendar girls on my walls. I wanted them as my roommates. High Hefner was my boyhood hero. Even Mickey couldn’t do for me what Hef did. It is just after 4AM in San Diego as I write this. Time means nothing to me any longer. I work online to make others money, starting with me. I do what I love. For most of my life, I have done just that. Frank sings “I have been a puppet, a poet, a pirate, a pawn and a king.” Well, I have been a teacher, a CPA, an entrepreneur, a dad and a husband. It has been a good life, but it took me many years on my journey to realize one thing. It is all about me. Nobody is going to care more than I do. I don’t like meetings, phone calls, or being involved in anything which I don’t create. If you are a writer like me that might be important to you and you will want to take this journey with me. If you don’t, you can get off the bus now. Keep it simple.

That kind of realization is very freeing.. it is great to drive my own bus.
