I think everyone knows if you try to focus on everything, you won’t get anything done. In my case, recently, I’ve found myself focused more on my training, my enjoyment of life, and work than anything else, including blogging.
Frankly, I’m a little tired of it. There are plenty of voices saying what needs to be said, most of them say it better than I do; and not much is going to change. The same people who elected George W. Bush elected Obama. Those same people elected Republicans to control the Congress and they spend out of control, then they elected Democrats who spend out of control. They are all the same; the goal is to take power from the individual and get it to the government. I’m optimistic there will eventually be a move for limited government, but we have to be realistic; it’s a 50 year movement, not a 4 year movement.
(The two main things recently that have driven me to this are the “Rand Paul/Libertarians are racists” stories and the Mayor of Baltimore pulling out the old “we’re out of money so we are grounding the police helicopter and closing fire stations… or…. we can raise some taxes” play.)
Since not much will change (even with the groundswell of anti incumbency that will hit in November), it’s best that we focus on what we can control, which in my case is my own life. I need to get strong, I need to have fun, I need to be good at work, I need to control what I can, and prepare for what I can’t.
So blogging will slow down a little for a while, and I think the subject matter will shift to more personal development, interesting or fun stuff, training, and personal stories. I’m sure a couple of Libertarian rants will sneak through, though. Blogging is all about my enjoyment, so I should do what I want, anyway.
I’m going to be off the grid starting this afternoon, be back on sometime late Friday, so expect light posting until then.
