“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.

“I gotta come back and tell the greatest story they never told
This must be the feeling that you get when you know you close”

– Big Sean on “Bigger Than Me”

Nowadays, I feel like most people hype stuff up a lot but don’t follow through. Like, I can’t tell you how often I’m on Twitter and I see things like “coming soon” or “be on the lookout.” Now don’t get me wrong, promoting your project is great. In fact, I’m guilty of using those same phrases. However, it seems like there’s TOO much of that without the actual content to back it up. So yeah, that leads me to the topic of this month.

Before we jump too far ahead though, welcome! Welcome to the February 2017 Opinions Column. This is where I talk about anything and everything that’s on my mind. You know how it goes, so here we go.

As we roll into the new year, a lot of people set goals for themselves. Whether it’s learning something new, getting fit, or finally getting to something long overdue, new years are like hitting the reset button. Yes we’re well into the new year, but I wanted to talk about this a bit more.

Beforeeee we get too ahead of ourselves though, WELCOME to the first Opinions Column of 2017! The kinda late one haha. If you’re new to the site, this is where I talk about whatever is on my mind. For those returning, welcome back! It’s a glorious time so let’s talk about what’s ahead (and also reflect on where we’ve come from).
