“Y’all think small, I think Biggie”
– Jay-Z on “Family Feud

Far too often, we focus on what’s ahead. We’re looking at our calendars for what’s coming up, what we need to plan for, and what to expect. Whether it’s tomorrow’s meeting, next week’s social event, or next month’s movie release (there’s a lot more examples), we get caught up. I mean, I know I’m guilty of it. Instead of focusing on what we already have, we’re constantly thinking about what we don’t have. So with this month’s Opinions Column, I wanna focus on something really important…gratitude.

Before we move ahead though, welcome! This is the July 2017 Opinions Column. It’s here that I talk about anything and everything that’s going on with me. For those that’re returning, welcome back! And for those that’re new to the site, glad to have you here. With that said, let’s talk ’bout the topic of this month’s Opinions Column, gratitude, and why it’s so important.

“We unstoppable, so everything is possible”
– Xzibit on “Focus

One thing I’ve come to notice, especially in recent months, is how many distractions surround us. Whether it’s other people, other responsibilities, or *ehem* social media, there are so many things that pull us in different directions. Did I mention social media? Lol. Yeah, it’s easy to get distracted and lose sight of what you were doing in the first place. During times like these, it’s important to get back on track and focus. Not just any kinda focus though…laser focus.

Before we get ahead of ourselves though, welcome back to the Opinions Column. This is where I talk about anything and everything going on in my life. For those that’re new to the site, welcome and glad to have you visit. For those returning, y’all know the drilly! And with that, let’s talk about the importance of LASER focus.

“Ahead of my time like I live my whole life backwards”
– J. Cole on “Dead Presidents II

It seems like nowadays, time comes at a premium. When we were kids, it was easy. Responsibilities were minimal and we could have all the fun we wanted. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there’s always something to do. I don’t quite know when this shift occurred, but it’s reality now. And so, with all that life throws at us, it’s so important to manage time efficiently.

Welcome to the May 2017 Opinions Column. It is here that we can keep up and you’ll hear about what’s on my mind. For those returning, welcome back. And for those that’re new to the site, welcome as well. And with that said, let’s talk about the importance of time management.

“I didn’t invent the game I just rolled the dice trying to get some change”
– Jay-Z on “Public Service Announcement”

Quite often, we get stuck in a rut. I’ve talked about it at lengths in previous blog posts, but I wanted to revisit it. It’s mad easy to become stagnant, discouraged, or just unmotivated to “make it happen.” And more often than not, it’s easy to live in our heads. That’s what I wanna talk about in this Opinions Column.

Before we jump ahead though, welcome! This is the Opinions Column which is super, super late lol. It’s here where I ramble about anything and everything. For those that’re new to the site, welcome! And for those returning, welcome too! With that, let’s talk about making it happen.

“Why stop when it doesn’t have to end?
It ain’t over ’til I say it’s over, enough when I say enough”
– Eminem on “Survival

It’s easy to get sidetracked in this krazy thing we call life. Whether it’s people pulling you in other directions, obligations you have to tend to, or simply distractions (because they’re all around us, c’mon), it’s really easy to lose focus. It happens to me way too much. However, just because you get off track doesn’t mean it’s a forever kinda thing. And of course, just as easy as it is to get off track, it’s easy to get back on too.

Before we dig too deep though, WELCOME! Welcome to the March 2017 Opinions Column. This is where I dig deep about what’s on my mind. Whether it’s where I’ve been, what I’m doing, or just random thoughts I have, you’ll hear them here. For those that’re returning, welcome back! And for new visitors, welcome as well. With my monthly-as-I-do-every-month-intro outta the way, let’s get right into it. Or should I say, back at it.
