Well, if you don’t know, I have my hands in a few things that I’m trying to get off the ground. My ultimate goal is to eventually make enough residual, passive income so that I can have enough time to be with my family and friends. I love creating things, I love helping people and I love just hanging out with family and friends.
Time is our most valuable asset. It’s infinitely more valuable than money. I just want to create more time for myself so I can do all those things I mentioned. I can develop and implement more products with more time on my hands.
I can’t wait for that day!
This week I’m setting my PHLAME goals on Friday, and I like it. Normally, I’d say setting on Sunday is a good day, but I can definitely see the benefit in doing it today. I’m already in the groove of being in front of a computer and I’m already in work-mode.
If I complete the goals today, I can have them ready and waiting for me to conquer, instead of actually taking up time to do them on Sunday. Even though I write my goals here on the blog, I also have them on a spreadsheet locally on my computer. I’ll provide a copy (via download) of that for those who’d like one. It’s a ridiculously simple spreadsheet, but I’ve come to realize that what I might feel is simple, there are still others who might not feel the same. So I’m willing to accommodate.
Ok, so as you know, this blog currently refers to itself as M.Feps, squared. I’m changing that. Why? Because it just doesn’t ring. It doesn’t have a nice catch to it. Even though the name thing isn’t as important as the actual process, I figured if it didn’t take much thought and time I should just go ahead and change it.
Well, after about ten minutes of thinking, I came up with PHLAMES (pronounced Flames). It’s much easier to say and it’s much easier to remember.
The P still stands for Professional.
The H now stands for Healthy, which replaced the P that stood for Physical.
The L now stands for Loved Ones, which replaced the F that stood for Family.
The A now stands for Academic, which replaced the E that stood for Educational.
There are two Ms, but for the sake of making the name look shorter, it’s only written once. One M still stands for mental. The other now stands for Monetary, which replaced the F that used to stand for Financial.
The E still stands for Entrepreneur.
There are still two Ss. They still stand for Social and Spiritual.
So there you have it, right here on the blog is the official announcement that M.Feps, squared is now PHLAMES.
So, I joined the YMCA the other day. The 17th to be exact…I think. I signed up for an initial class they’re offering for something called FitLinxx. I won’t go into detail, but FitLinxx was quite possibly, the WORST invention ever. It sucked. I think it’s a program designed for newbies. I may be fat, outta shape and fat, but I’m not a newbie in the gym.
Anyway, after the shortened version of the FitLinxx class (it was shortened because me and the Y rep came to an understanding), I worked out.
I weighed in at 324 lbs…TERRIBLE. read more…
I lost my little brother, Marcus on New Years eve morning. It was Dec 31st 2010. This was the year that my son, Joseph was born on Jan 1st 2010. So, in other words, my son came on the first day of the year and my little brother left on the last day of the year. This was a huge mental blow to me. I can’t even grasp the what’s when’s why’s and how’s of this shit. this is something that I’ll be dealing with mentally for a long time. I don’t know the cure for this shit, just that being around family helps…A LOT.
