Lack of writing to this blog no one reads anyway is not necessarily because of lack of writing. I’m starting little bits here and there all the time.
In fact, I am actually finishing a lot more pieces in effort to get them posted here. And then I decide to not to post them here at all.

I may not have had the time I want to proofread, spell check, and edit publish to my blog, but I am reading just about as many, if not more, thoughts and words from other blogs.

As we put a close on the second month of the year, I wanted to take a moment to toot my own horn, and congratulate myself on the things I did actually accomplish this month:
- Two consecutive months of Daily Quotes & Questions posted at You Already Have The Answers dot COM (although it helps that I have 2 & 1/2 years of questions banked up)
- Two consecutive months of my 2010 Picture Of The Day / 365 Project at Flickr
- Despite another (and possibly another) restart of the 1000 Mile Challenge, I took on another physical/mathematical challenge. I am now testing 1% a day added effort (sort of) by attempting to work up to 100 pushups by adding one more pushup a day for 100 days. On day six with six pushups today, and daily video. Blog for this coming.
- Not giving up on Fast Forward Business Properties, LLC. In fact, investing a lot of time and money that I don’t have into amping up the business, including doing some of the original paperwork I should have completed a year ago.
- Getting my coaching documents designed and online, and getting the shells of the websites for Peak Performance Advisor redesigned (again) a little closer to my liking for final approval.
