Aim past it!
Keeping with our friends Stephen & Rab, The Kilted Coaches, Fearsome and I have some attitude adjustment to do in order to keep us on track. Today we are reminded that in order to achieve our goals, we need to aim beyond them.
Now that Fearsome is at belly button, his next goal is belt buckle. Therefore he’s aiming for mid fly.
My next fitness goal is to regain the strength and muscle I’ve lost in the isolation and closed gym of the pandemic, so I am in my garage setting up my new home gym and am going to aim for 10lbs beyond my last lifting best, but will safely start lifting far below that and aim to gain slowly to 10 lbs beyond. My next financial goal is to pay 70% of the cost of my new Cybertruck in cash January of 2022, so I’m going to aim for paying 100% cash!
Let’s get this party started!
Ryan can tear it up. Damn.
(I admit I have to modify these to make them easier.)
One of my favorite YouTubers is treating us to a special body weight home workout series. When we get lemons, let us make lemonade.
Why do I get up in the morning?
Why do I go to work?
Why do I work hard?
Why do I strive to get better?
Why do I save?
Why do I?
I do because when I do, I get to help those who cannot speak for themselves. I get to support the San Diego Humane Society. That’s why!
Thank you SDHS for giving me my Why!

I just watched Elon Musk unveil the new Tesla CyberTruck.
I placed a deposit on one.
0-60 in under 2.9 seconds, self driving, air suspension, 16 inch clearance, 14,000 LB towing capacity, seats six, 500 mile range, 6.5 ft bed, tri motor AWD…one sweet truck.
Estimated delivery 2022, so Fearsome has some houses to sell. We can’t wait!
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11.
With Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on board, Apollo 11 would land man on the surface of Earth’s only moon 4 days later on July 20, 1969. This first ever lunar landing is one of my very first memories.
The Apollo mission occurred during one of our country’s most turbulent times some 9 years after one of our greatest presidents set a simple, yet difficult, clear goal with a time limit. Good leaders challenge us to grow, great leaders bring us together. It is only together that we can achieve great things.
In honor of yet another 50th anniversary of history, I post my favorite musical memory of 1969.
🎵Harmony and understanding🎶 🎵Sympathy and trust abounding🎶
Worthy goals for a society. May the lyrics of this 50 year old tune inspire and enlighten our society toward better.

When I started this here Fearsome Beard blog thingy, I didn’t really have any direction for it. I hadn’t set a goal nor even visualized a dream. I was simply inspired by Dr. Spo, Sean, Erik and The Warrior Queen. I wanted to become more of a part of their community. I also wanted to maybe get to know myself a bit better by occasionally recording a thought, contemplation or feeling.
Fearsome became my muse. My beard had become very much a part of who I was. I decided that naming him and making the blog “ours” would allow me to express myself more easily. It worked. Starting on June 1, 2014 we have very rarely missed a day. Many of those days we only posted a photo of a beard. To do this we had to search and find a photo that we liked or expressed a feeling that conveyed meaning to us.
We have experimented with writing which frankly isn’t something I had any experience with whatsoever. We have done many things from posting opinions, inspirations, music, videos and even wrote poetry. Me poetry? Last thing I ever thought I’d try, much less post publically.
Yes, Fearsome Beard has taken Fearsome and I to places we never really thought we would go. So now comes the challenge after more than 4 years of blogging and 2,592 posted entries.
What do we want from our blog? Does it have a purpose? Could it help us on our life’s journey? Could this here blog thingy mean more to us? Could it be more than it is and has been so far?
During Comic-Con 2017 I attended a panel on writing and becoming a writer. I went simply because my niece was going and I thought to myself “what could it hurt to learn a little more about writing?” I left inspired and with a title of a book to read that everyone on the panel agreed hands down was the best book in print on the subject of writing.
Stephen King’s On Writing/A memoir of the Craft.
Being so inspired I immediately ordered a copy. Inspiration wearing off like it can, the book has been on my nightstand for more than a year unopened.
Starting today I commit to reading. Reading at a minimum 10 pages daily (maybe more, but at least 10) and then blogging briefly about my reading each and every day. By blogging I can cement my take on each day’s read in my brain. By sharing I might inspire another or convey something of value to another. By committing publically I am allowing myself to be accountable to you my dear readers to follow my dream of learning more about writing, of learning more about myself, of growing my skills and of creatively expressing myself as I have never have before.
Wish me the best and feel free to comment and/or hold me to my commitment. I only ask that any input to please be constructive and encouraging.
Always, yes always, look at the end goal and not the obstacles. When you focus on the end result, you will get there.
Business goal number 1 ;
My best year ever! Top producing agent with more than 15 million in closed sales.
So how was business for me on the first business day of the year? Fantastic!
I listed two properties into our MLS today and already sold one at $310,000 and have showings lined up for the other at $2,195,000. I spoke with one of my buyers who will be looking at a new listing in the neighborhood Saturday at $2,599,000 and had another new buyer prequalified for a $700,000 purchase.
What do I have to say to The Universe about this?
Thanks KC, no one could say it better!
