Hey, everyone, I hope you all had an amazingly productive week and here’s this weeks round of questions.
The way it works is every week readers submit their answers to the questions in the comments section along with a question they would like to see next week. You can choose to answer as many of the questions you’d like. I understand sometimes a question can be sensitive in nature and one wouldn’t want to answer it. Commenters are also encouraged to share their blog so readers can find out more about them.
Thank you for supporting this project and I hope you enjoy reading and taking part!
When it comes to work, are you passionate about what you do, or do you make a compromise with work so that you can have the means to live the lifestyle you want to live?
I enjoy my job, it pays the bills. For me, it has been a means to an end. I do have a fear of having to do the same thing over and over for the rest of my life. I’m hoping to redefine my skill set in the next few years so this does fear does not become a reality.
Who do you write for and why do you write for them?
Awesome question David, I hope readers today take the time to answer this even if they only answer it to themselves. I write for a number people and reasons. One is I’m hoping to have children one day, and I have this crazy idea that one day all my blog post on Why? will be turned into a book.
You know how they sell video game guides to first-time game buyers? This is how I envision my book for my children. It might not turn out to be the best guide but it’s something where they can sort get ahead start in life. Learn from mistakes I’ve made.
As a child, I always thought it was fascinating to read my fathers journal and I hope to give the same gift to my children.
I’m also writing for myself in a sense and others who need that little pick me up when they are struggling. I’ve been in dark places before and sometimes all you need is a little push. I hope to give that to people.
Do you think the concept of religion is overrated?
I’ll start by rephrasing the question, as Do I think think the concept of religion is necessary?
I’ll keep it short and sweet. I wish religion didn’t separate humans. I do believe it’s necessary for growth as an individual, family, and community. The only aspect I wish somehow could be changed is a simple fact that religion divides people.

What is one book you’ve read to improve any aspect of your life?
I’d encourage anyone that wants to improve their ability to communicate in any setting read “Leil Lowndes: How to talk to anyone 92 Little Tricks for Big Success in Relationships” A masterclass book. I’m impressed with the amount of “Nuggets” you will pick up by reading the book. It’s a fun read and has made me want to have more and more conversations with people despite my introverted nature.
I hope you all are enjoying taking the time to read or answer the questions as much I am!
Till next time!
P.S. Thank you very much to those that have expressed interest in a podcast session,& I will get to you soon! I’ve scheduled meetups with the first few individuals and will be connecting with everyone that expressed interest as we go along! Thanks again!
