The Dirtbag Diaries #1: Making 1>0

I’ve been thinking a lot more about how I plan to do this.  As I am wont to do, I often get bogged down thinking about all the things that make it not worth it.

But then today, I watched this video.

And it gave me an idea…

Why don’t I document the climb? And talk about how I’m making 1>0 a reality.

So here we have it.  The first entry into The Dirtbag Diary.

I’m been struggling for the last few years to work out what I actually want to do with my life.  I’ve often said “I want to run my own business”.  But people continue to see me as a shyster, a fraud.  I’m talking but I’m not executing

You see, I’m really good at researching, understanding, putting things together, and dreaming of better things.

My weakness?  My lack of action…

Too long I thought a magical solution would just fall into my lap if I wanted hard enough.  Well that’s not the case.  I have to work for it.

The biggest wake up call for me has been the birth of my son.  It has spurred me into action.  I now have something to work for.  All of a sudden it feels like my work matters.  That what I produce matters. I now love working hard and working smart.   I want more.  I want to make this count.

That’s why I’m going to document this whole thing.  I want people to see how I’m enjoying the climb.

The ultimate goal?  Make this a viable business to support my family.

I’ll keep you updated.
