What does the Future Hold for This Website?

Hi everyone, if you’re reading this, I appreciate you.

I haven’t worked on this blog for almost 3 months. I started school up again this semester to finish my civil engineering degree, which has been keeping me busy. But the main reason this blog has been dead is because of my procrastination.

For 3 years I’ve had the dream of developing and running a blog. But, this has only been a pipe dream- It’s now or never. If I don’t put at least a little bit of work in this site each day, it’s obvious that I like the idea of having a blog, but not actually doing the work to make it.

I like writing. I feel better about myself as a person when I’m writing consistently. It’s a hard pursuit, and maybe that’s why it’s so rewarding.

Now it’s the time to put it all together. For the first time in my life, I think I’m on the cusp of actually liking myself and being proud of myself.

I need to recognize my nonsense perfectionistic excuses. Things like if I can’t write for at least two hours, it’s not worth it and there’s not point to doing this, I’m never going to feel confident running a website.

These excuses and self downing thoughts are probably never going to go away, but at least I can recognize them and not give them the time of day. We really are our own worst enemies. It’s time that I stop this internal war and focus on being a productive, attractive, effective man.

See you soon,

Ben Durst
