And in the beginning the word was............ blog. I am not too confident or suree about this exercise, but at the urging and encouragement of a good friend I am going to venture into the world of blogging. Or I might say dabble. I am not too sure if I have anything to say that might be of interest to anyone else let alone politically important or solvent. I love to read other blogs, that I find very good by the way and will add their links when I learn how, but I am not sure that I can even begin to be up to their standards.
The only thing that makes this a bit easier for me now is .........TIME. I am going to have plenty of it for awhile. I was just laid off from a teaching position and have not yet started to collect unemployment or begin my next class/life changing course, more about that later, so my friend told me that this would also be good timing to start a blog of my own.
I am not, nor to a pretend to be, a good writer like my friend. He has written since high school and has a knack. We shall refer to him in all future writing as Sam Spade, or SS for short. I have never enjoyed the act of writing fiction, or poetry or even songs. Just not my area of talent. I was always the singer, the actor, the outgoing talent. So, we shall see how this works.
I have some stories to tell as I am also trying to improve myself and my world on a daily basis, as you can tell from the title. You can find out more about the Kaizen Exercise by locating the article at a great web site that I like to read www.innerself.com Great for personal reflection and journaling. One of many links that I will add on to this site when I learn how to do that sort of thing.
So, for now I am going to say adieu. I will contemplate what to do next and get a better look at this site.
In closing here are the Kaizen questions that you should ask yourself daily:
How can I improve my relationship w/ my spouse & family?
How might I improve my health?
What can I do today to improve my value to my company?
How can I improve my sense of enjoyment & pleasure?
What else can I improve today?
