Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Take a moment, step back from your concerns, and focus on one thing: You have one life to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted. Sounds simple, but when you really focus on it, let it seep into your consciousness, you realize you only have about 100 years to get every single thing you’ve ever wanted to do. No second chances. This is your only shot. Suddenly, this means you should have started yesterday. No more waiting for permission or resources to start. Today is the day you make the rest of your life happen. Write down one thing you’ve always wanted to do and how you will achieve that goal. Don’t be afraid to be very specific in how you’ll achieve it: once you start achieving, your goals will get bigger and your capability to meet them will grow.

w00t w00t, here we go. The following is not something I’ve always wanted to do, but it’s something that has grown on me recently. I’d love to attend every F1 Grand Prix in a calendar year, perhaps with media accreditation or even better as a guest of one of the teams. Red Bull anyone? They are the party people after all … now, where’s Mark Webber’s phone number?

On a less “it’s all about me” note, if I can raise happy, confident, intelligent, thoughtful children then my job will be done.
