Today is June 1.
How the hell did that happen so quick.
Half way through the World and what have I achieved?
Hell, half way through my life and what have I achieved.
Life passes so quickly, so I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise we often come to the end of our days and wonder what the hell we’ve good things we’ve actually achieved – even though, by then it’s all a bit too bloody late.
On top of that, as you get older, you discover there’s an amazing amount of other interesting and exciting things you can learn and experience which basically means that even if you commit a large percentage of your life to doing the things that matter, you’re going to end up disappointed overall.
Well, you will if – like me – you’re a glass half empty kind of guy.
In some respects, we should close off our minds to ‘new’ and just focus on what is wonderful in our lives now – at least that would stop us getting distracted and let us invest in what lovely things are right in front of our faces – but as much as I want to surround myself with the people and things that make me feel alive, I can’t help myself when I see new stuff that I find exciting …
I blame being an only child … which means I can say it’s all my parents fault, ha!
Of course what makes it worse is that we have these things called ‘birthdays’.
Those pesky annual events that not only remind you you’re getting older but that the gap between time and total fulfillment is shrinking.
In 11 days, I have another one of those pesky birthdays …
Which is the real reason I wrote this post, even if it won’t make a jot of difference to whether you send me card/pressies/money or not.
Did you see what I did there?
I just fused seeding and reverse psychology strategies together.
That’s the sort of shit you’d expect to see on serious planner blogs – or PSFK – not on my rubbish so let’s see on June 12th whether strategy fusion is the future of advertising or another load of overhyped, ineffective, ego-infested, twaddle.
