Creating arbitrary deadlines to become successful.

I think one of the reasons why people are not successfully doing independent companies or working at home is because we're trained to only work on deadlines set by other people. Do youo think we can succeed if we create our own deadlines?

FInding your voice.

I think a large part of why I've started on this writing endeavor is to find my voice. For so long, I've just been faced with tasks given to me by others: do this assignment, come into work by nine, do this, do that.

I've also been faced with tasks given to me not just personally, but societal mandates: first you go to college, then you get an office job, then you work for forty years, then you retire, then you do what you want for however long you have left, and then you die.
Isn't there more than this? I think the reasons my postings have been so terse and unimaginative is because I simply don't have a voice. Or if I have a voice, it's very scared and in hiding.

What does one have to do to find their voice?

Why does no one come to my blog?

I've been very disappointed recently, I'm just going to be honest. I've been going to several blogs and commenting -- blogs with not that many people going to them, hoping at least in response to my good comments that they will at least come to my blog.

Not one.

I find that offensive and it makes me angry. I thought I would get a little help! Well, they all just lost one viewer! LOL

However, I'm going to switch up my style...generate some good content that will make them beg and crave to go to my blog. They'll see!!
