Something that comes up again and again in my life is the question of how I have time to do everything I do. I have a lot of thoughts on time management and cutting wasted time, but a big part of it comes down to priorities and jumping in head first.
At nearly a year since I became single, I have been out there giving the dating world a shot. It is a jungle out there, but I have learned some interesting stuff. Dating is complicated, but only if you over think it. There are two important factors to look at: you and your date.
I am always reading a lot, and a recent topic of interest led me to look introspectively at how I carry myself and act in social situations. I have always thought of myself as a “nice guy,” but have found that being too nice can keep a guy from getting what he really wants in life.
Over the last month, I have become a part of the small community of flash mob planners in Denver. On Black Friday, I joined about thirty other Denver locals to dance the afternoon away in our first silent dance party. On Halloween, we had a pillow fight. Last month, I joined my first flash mob when we danced on light rail.
On Friday night, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my “blogger heroes.” I spent the evening with a crowd of non-conformists and Chris Guillebeau. Chris, the author of The Art of Non-Conformity blog, was here on his Art of Non-Conformity Unconventional Book Tour.
