There are no shortcuts

There just aren't.

There are certain things you must go through and experience before you can become what you want. This is true to pretty much everything in life. Working hard is part of the process; falling down again and again, only to pick yourself up is part of the achievement itself, and really, is the success.

With that in mind, don't get too upset if your plans take a little longer to happen; and don't stop learning your lessons and staying focused and positive. It's not a question of "if", its a questions of "when".


  1. Thank you for posting all these years. I read this blog for a number of years before finally leaving two months ago. The quote in the January 2014 post, Infinite Distances has been especially helpful. Still having a very hard time, but I know I did the right thing. The pain will ease. Thank you. Just want you to know you're helping people. This is my first comment, and I've been reading for years. I'm sure there are many people that you're helping.

  2. @anonymous thank you for the kind words. Means a lot---I really appreciate it. Please feel free to write me at
