LIKE JACK NICHOLSON IN THE SHINING…HERE’S FRANK!
Thank you for waiting and being a loyal subscriber!
I haven’t written on The Daley Post (TDP) for some time now as you well know!–not having see me here!
I’ll explain why, and tell you what I’ve been doing, what’s new, what’s coming and then I’m going to give you a present!
THE DALEY POST
I began with this blog, The Daley Post, to familiarize myself with the process, learn some of the technology and get my feet wet.
SKC and DDL weren’t created yet. In fact, Dropout To Dean’s List is still under construction–but it’s nearly ready.
Simultaneously, I published my book, WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? The way to know yourself and get what you want. (WAY for short!)
SELF KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE
The book (WAY) and my new site, SELF-KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE, which is opening the first week of June, are for people who have a serious problem in life but they don’t know what that problem is exactly and so they don’t know how to solve it.
It’s difficult for people even to talk about this kind of general problem when it befalls us because it is like nailing Jello or finding a tree in the mist.
At times it seems beyond our ability to grasp it.
Sometimes we just can’t put our finger on why we are dissatisfied in life, or why we seem to be falling behind others, or we aren’t as far along in our careers as we figured we should be–would be–by now.
We feel that way because life is complicated and we are busy, true, but it’s also because we often don’t know ourselves well enough to make the best decisions for ourselves regarding our work, education, career choice or love life.
We start to try to make a decision about something in our life–work, a new job or career path, even something as simple as starting a hobby and then…nothing.
Wed don’t follow up. We lose, if not exactly interest, we lose some kind of drive that would allow us to fully investigate whatever we thought we wanted t try.
Then we do this again.
Finally,we come to the point where we don’t trust ourselves about decisions any more (because we think, well they haven’t panned out) and we just stop trying new things or investigating what the little voice in our head says when it suggests: ‘”DO THIS!”
We make mistakes.
That’s natural, we all do but when we continue to make mistakes or when we make the same mistakes time after time–such as dating the wrong people or choosing the wrong career path–it causes serious problems for us and our families and gets ‘way beyond frustrating.
We can become first, anxious, then sad, and then depressed.
It hurts; and we might go into a spiral that seems unstoppable.
We start developing presenting problems–things we do or can’t seem to do-that hurt us even more.
Many of them are related to things such as time management, (which is really self-management), procrastination, goal-setting, the inability to say “NO.”
Things like that.
Many people balk at first when I mention self-knowledge because they think it’s too strange but they sure know what I mean when I speak of things like procrastination or constantly choosing the wrong person to date.
Those, however, are exactly signs of a lack of self-knowledge.
That’s what I’ll be writing about on SELF-KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE and THE DALEY POST.
I had to spend time creating and building the site for SELF-KNOWLEDGE COLLEGE .
It’s ready now and I’ll start writing on it and The Daley Post again.
In the next few emails I’ll tell you more about the plan and how I’m going to get you more information about YOU in the coming months.
DROPOUT TO DEAN’S LIST
I was also building my sister site, Dropout to Dean’s List. It’s still under construction but I’ll tell you more about that in a day or so.
It will be for at-risk students and their worried parents.
THE “WAY” WORKBOOKS
The other big thing that kept me away from writing on The Daley Post was writing two new books, two workbooks to accompany the core book,
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? The way to know yourself and get what you want.
“WAY,” for short, as I said.
The first Workbook is for the general reader readers of this site, I’m guessing, and the second is for at-risk students.
SO. I’ve been staying off the street corners!
Thank you again for being a loyal subscriber to THE DALEY POST.
In a few days I’m going to reward you with a your own digital copy of the WAY book.
And thanks again.
