I’ve been scatterbrained lately. To the point where I feel like I’m struggling to focus on just about anything. I have tons of ideas, as everyone does, but I never seem to act on any of them. As this problem as persisted I’ve begun to ask myself “why” more and more. I want to create, but I have no clue what. The answer to that problem? Just do what comes to mind. Make something, no matter how small, because the act of actually doing will at least lead you on the path to finding what you actually like to do. If you don’t start you’ll look back a year from now and realize you’ve done nothing, which is the worst possible situation to be in.

On this website, I’ve pigeonholed myself. I’ve made it very career and entrepreneurial focused. I’ve come to realize this is limiting me. I have SO MANY other interests that I’d like to write about and explore, but I feel like I shouldn’t do it because it wouldn’t fit with the theme of this site.

But what is the theme of this site anyway? It isn’t startyourcareer.com or Altheyoungbusinessman.com is it? It’s alexreaton.com. My personal site, where of all places on earth I should have the freedom to explore whatever I feel like. I can’t believe I’ve allowed myself to be pigeonholed by one interest. I’m 22 years old. Yes, I thought about trying to become a big business blogger at one point, but as you can see by the small number of posts on here I haven’t stuck with it consistently. That in itself should’ve been sign enough.

Don’t get me wrong, I have a huge fascination with business and entrepreneurship. I love it. But starting today I’m allowing myself the freedom to explore whatever I want. I will post about anything and everything on this site. Little projects I take on, interests, whatever that may be.

When…Hell, if I find one particular thing to focus on, I can rest assured I’ll be able to look back and see how I got there, because I will have explored all my different interests by actually acting upon them, instead of simply thinking about it.

It’s a process of building self-awareness, learning what I enjoy. Anyone who visits this site is welcome to come along for the ride, and I encourage you to do the same for yourself.
