I started this year like every other year. With a game plan. But between the snow, the Patriots epic Super Bowl run, the Deflategate scandal, late night texts and Uber drop offs & pick ups and several organization changes within my company AKA my daytime career…I was distracted. I wanted to finish the book, but I didn’t. I wanted to get away from all the filler women (that T-pisode is coming) who even though a few of them were sweet, they were a distraction. And I didn’t get away from them. I wanted to continue my new fitness routine of prepped meals, mud races and dirty boxing. But I didn’t. I tried making plans with friends and family I hadn’t seen in a while but I didn’t see them. Next thing I knew it was Summer and I was heading to Greece. Then the transition happened.
Before I left for Greece I was given an opportunity at the office to make several changes. And I did. I took the ball and ran with it. My day time career became priority number 1. The book, T-blawg, writing, fitness, women, friends and family fell second to that. The last half of the year I built the foundation for a lot of long and short-term goals I plan to see pay outs with starting in 2016. I secured a new spot on the office roster. With that done I started writing again. I started working on the book again. T-blawg was up and running again. But different. Better. All of the filler women faded away. Good luck in life ladies. My relationships with the important people in my life became stronger. Thank God for them. I was back on a fitness routine kicking my own ass again. I was becoming stronger. Basically 2015 was split into two halves for me. The first half was thrown at me and I adapted and made some big moves. Big changes. The second half of the year allowed me to get ready for one hell of a fucking ROI (return on investment) for my future. And now it’s time to get back to a balanced life. I often wonder how some people don’t recognize an opportunity when they see one. Or how some run from challenges. Or even waste time on negative people and negative relationships. This year once again, I could’ve acted like everyone else. I could’ve been defeated. I didn’t have to adapt. I could’ve remained distracted. But I said “Fuck this.” And I made 2015 into my transition year. Change will come and go. People will come and go. Opportunities will come and go. Money will come and go. But I will always be constant. Consistent. And I will always be me. I will always continue to learn and grow as a man but I will always adapt and find ways to control my future. This was my 2015. This was my transition year.
Do I have a game plan for 2016? You bet your sweet ass I do. Specific goals are listed but the overarching theme is still the same as always… To be a better man today than I was yesterday. To never compete with anyone but myself. And to live, laugh, learn and love. If 2015 was my transition year then 2016 is going to be my “cashing in” year. The hard work, sacrifice and due diligence placed into the foundation of 2015 WILL result in my best year yet, 2016. With that said, this is the last T-pisode of 2015. Stay tuned for one hell of a fucking 2016 people. Happy New Year my friends.
Until next time. Always take it there.
