My First Post

My 1st postHello…

Wow, where to start? This all feels a little bit overwhelming now. This grand idea of mine to start a lifelong improvement blog is now really real. It’s only taken me a few months, and that was just to decide on the domain name, something which I’m still not entirely sure of…

Anyway, I’m already starting to get off track here so let me try and start over.

Hello, and welcome to My Lifelong Improvement, a blog dedicated to improving my life, which will in turn hopefully help to improve the life of others. My name is Iain, and I’m a 26-year-old guy from Scotland, Aberdeen. For the longest time I’ve been excited about productivity and self-development, and I don’t really know why. It’s kind of something that I’ve just been hooked by, so much so it’s spurred me on to start my very own blog called My Lifelong Improvement… What’s that? Am I repeating myself already? Oops, so I am.

As you can probably already tell, this is most definitely going to be a work in progress, but that’s OK. It’s really what the whole point of this is. I mean, we’re all a work in progress really, and right just now this is me working on progressing my (severely lacking) writing technique – something which will improve as we go on. Or maybe it won’t? Who really knows? That’s what makes all of this so exciting – the whole unknown. Maybe this will be a massive success. Maybe this will be a massive failure. Maybe I’ll stop saying maybe. Maybe?

For now though, again, welcome to my blog. I felt the need to get a 1st post up, and this is it. Hopefully, some of you reading this will decide to follow along with me. I’m going to be writing about areas in my life that I have managed to improve, whether that be mentally, physically, financially or whatever else-ally. The advice I share will hopefully then be able to aid others, and if it doesn’t, then at least I gave it a shot! As Woody Allen says, “80% of success is simply showing up.” Well here I am, I’ve shown up, the question is where are you? Oh, there you are. Reading my blog. How stupid of me. Let’s just pretend that was a rhetorical question, ok?

As I go on, I’ll be zeroing in on areas of my life that I’m not fully satisfied with, and I’ll be sharing what I’m doing to improve on them. My ultimate purpose with this blog is to make continual improvement throughout my life. It really is aimed at being a lifelong improvement project.
Damn, maybe I should’ve gone with the name MyLifelongImprovementProject.com instead! Then again, this domain name is already long enough as it is.

I feel like I’m starting to ramble, so I think it’s best that I leave this here for now.

I really hope to see you all again soon. Follow along, and let’s have some fun with this!
