First Post

I know that I should be going to bed but I wanted to see if my current stroke of genius applied to getting this blog up and running. It did.

So, what’s the point of this thing? I decided that I would build a web site as an aid in building my own personal brand. I have had a lot of time to think about what I want to do with myself and how I am going to get there.

Tom Peters says that you are your projects. This is me. Projectjen.

Feel free to comment on what you see, or what you would like to see. I know many people out there are curious what I have been working on.

You are never too old…

Recently I attended a wedding and met a woman who was over 80 years old. She told me that she just learned to use e-mail so she could communicate with her family now that they were so far apart. Not only that but she swims almost every day.

This was my turning point. I don’t plan on falling back into the “I have know clue what to do with myself” rut again. If anything it will be a “I have no clue what not to do with myself” rut.

Based on observations at work and in everyday life, I have come to the conclusion that learning keeps you young. When you stop challenging your mind it has no reason to really work beyond the basics.
