What are you afraid of?

Micki Krimmel just posted this video from footage taken at Pixelodeon 2007 & it got me thinking…. Yeah I know this is a stretch! What am I afraid of? One of my biggest fears is putting out crappy stuff in everything I do and people not liking it. Does it matter other people don’t like my “stuff”?, as it is inevitable that people won’t. You can say I am a slight perfectionist and if I can’t do something to it’s fullest I really don’t want to do it at all, oh and I’m also afraid of land animals with out legs, ie. snakes, worms etc. I must get over these fears…well maybe not the land animals without legs fear.

So what are you afraid of? Are you willing to get over these fears? Or is the fear itself that drives us or destroys us?

**Update**  I just remembered, I have a huge fear of public speaking, I think I may have to rectify this and start speaking at conferences and other events.



Reboot, Refresh, and Rethink

RebootJeff Pulver just wrote an article titled “Empower the Imagination: A time for Companies to Reboot, Refresh and Rethink” and it got me thinking…Scary thought, eh.

His statement “Every once in a while I think it is good for everyone to do a Reboot, Refresh and Rethink.” made me think about where I am going with my life.

I have been working at the same place of employment for 8 years and can’t really go anywhere else at my current employer. I am also not very challenged in my job and it is really hard for them to get on board with new technologies and new media, much to my dismay. I keep pushing for them to do cool and exciting things but there is too much resistance against my forward thinking.

So now it is time for me to Reboot, Refresh, & Rethink. So I have a few questions I need to ask and answer for myself:

  • What am I doing?
  • Where am I going?
  • How am I going to get there?

I don’t have an answer to these questions yet, but I am going to do my damnedest to answer them and hold mself accountable to “How am I going to get there” question.

So I challenge all of my readers to Reboot, Refresh, & Rethink.
