Today is a big day for me. It is the first day of my new life. Today I launch a new online endeavor that I plan to be the focus of not just my career but my life years to come.
Distinctions for Life is a weekly video podcast for personal development and self-help or improvement. There are small changes you can make in your life that will have a big impact and Ron Davis, your host and guide, wants to share those with you and see you reach your full God given potential.
Each little piece of knowledge we use to make changes I call a distinction. Distinctions can be life encompassing, or specific to a context. Tips, tricks and habits that make you better at whatever you are doing.
If you’ve read this blog for long you know I have an interest in personal development in what ever I am doing. If I stop growing in an area, then I lose all passion for it. Well I’ve decided to focus on this passion and put to use what I’ve learned over the years.
I wanted to do something in online video/film. So the backbone of my new undertaking is a video podcast. I’m using the principle of batching to shoot and edit the episodes. This means I’ve already shot the first 6 episodes and mostly edited the first 3. This should help me avoid “podfade”.
I wanted to learn and teach. A long time ago I wrote a personal mission statement. “To live and lead creatively for God.” I still find that is what I want to do. So this gives me the opportunity to teach and to be constantly learning.
I wanted to start an internet based business. I’ve been studying internet marketing and business for the past few months. Matter of fact I’ve almost started a number of web projects and learned from all of them. DFL is the culmination. I know from my mistakes this will be the thing that can last.
I wanted to find a way to do all the cool and eclectic stuff I enjoy and help others. DFL will be structured to do just that. Expect to see episodes on fitness/bodybuilding, shooting, philosophy, and even pick up. If it was interesting in my life, I think it will be interesting to the viewers of DFL.
What does this mean for Reactuate?
Reactuate is my personal blog. It is where I talk about what is going on in my life and will continue to be. If I find a particular subject isn’t helping the DFL crowd, I’ll bring it here. If it is really personal, it is here. And there will be some cross pollination. I know a few old blog posts will become content for the new site.
I also will keep most of my photography blogging here. So the pretty girls are still in the reactuate feed.
Don’t expect Reactuate to go away.
Can you do me a favor?
Distinctions for Life is new. Just went live today. I needs to be promoted. If you are a blogger, could you tell your readers about it?
