Failure can be a great driving force. Desire only goes so far, much like motivation. It's been almost a week since my previous post already and some self reflection this morning while driving home from an "interview" with Sonic seemed to help some points click.

I failed. It's been almost a month since my previous post and my adventure to dive into stand up comedy. I made excuses again. I did do my research. I know where to go, who to talk to, how to sign up. I just never actually went.
I'm about to throw myself out there into the unknown again, doing something probably quite uncomfortable, for fun! Taken from The 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris (which has been an inspiration for my path in life since the first time I opened it), the idea is to "get comfortable with being uncomfortable." To do this, simply do things that are uncomfortable but not impossible. Things that will put some pressure on yourself, but not so much that it might break you. I've been doing this for years now and it's helped with quite a few things. My next goal is attempting stand up comedy.
I had full intention to post something yesterday. It ended up being quite a busy day though, and took me through some turns I didn't mentally prepare for taking. It was insightful though, albeit a little scary/depressing/insert-other-feelings-here. What was meant to be a discussion about prepping finance models for one of the startups I started working with turned into the CFO challenging me to rethink myself, my views and simply put...what I really want to do.
