Working while weary

By |2019-03-04T19:49:16+13:00March 4th, 2019|Introspection, Roundups|

I'm working hard, and it's hard on me. When I’m working from home, I’ve found it helps me get more productive to change out of my pajama pants, and into pants with pockets and a belt. I guess it really gets my ass in gear. But I've had to work from bed many days in [...]

Annual Review 2018

By |2019-01-06T14:27:16+13:00December 31st, 2018|Introspection|

2018 was a big year. I've worked harder this year than I ever have in my life (and that's really saying something). As I look back, I'm proud of what I've accomplished, and I'm also navigating the peculiar difficulties of slowing down. It's a challenge to achieve and accomplish things, and not work so hard, [...]

Natural Healing Remedies

By |2018-10-25T08:36:06+13:00October 11th, 2018|Introspection, The Good Stuff|

As it turns out, working 60 hours a week for 9 months is not good for the body. I developed some startling symptoms recently, right about the same time I resigned from my day job, and decided to go back to running my business full time. To cure my symptoms, I used the natural healing [...]

Annual Review 2017

By |2018-10-12T09:40:22+13:00December 31st, 2017|Introspection|

2017 has not turned out at all like I planned; but thankfully, I didn't hold onto my plans very tightly. Instead of deciding on my outcomes, I held on to my vision. Even when my plans changed. Especially when my plans changed. Every pivot has brought me to a shorter, unexpected path leading to my two [...]

Professional Clarity

By |2017-09-01T19:45:29+13:00February 13th, 2017|Business, Entrepreneur, Introspection|

I've decided to get clear about what I do.   For years, the unofficial feedback I get from people is, "I'm not entirely sure what it is you do, Caelan - but I know it has something to do with computers!"   I've heard this so many times, so consistently over the years, it's been [...]

Annual Review 2016

By |2017-01-02T08:39:47+13:00December 31st, 2016|Introspection|

2016 was a year of building momentum. I spent a lot of this year pivoting, and shedding things that didn't contribute to my two major life goals: Raising my kids Building my fortune Having these two goals as the compass points to orient my life's decisions has been clarifying, and helped me recognize what Warren Buffet [...]

Pivot to Pivot

By |2018-01-01T17:47:07+13:00December 19th, 2016|Business, Entrepreneur, Introspection|

I took almost a year off of this blog, and there were many reasons for my absence. The biggest reason is: during 2016 I pivoted my main brand three times. Pivot 1: BeTheBetterDad.com Pivot 2: WellnessWebsiteDesign.com Pivot 3: StellarPlatforms.com Pivot One Internally, I still call this project Father Fitness, even though it went [...]

Annual Review 2015

By |2018-02-21T19:38:36+13:00December 31st, 2015|Introspection|

This was a great year. 2015 gave me more victories than failures, and instead of pressing courageously forward, this year I paused to marshal my resources, and decide on the direction I want to go for the next five years. The biggest lesson I learned this year: I've now been a member of Fizzle for [...]
