A Very Good Year – My Life and Optimal Living

A Very Good Year - 2014, 2014, A Very Good Year…


Is a personal journal accounting my successes, setbacks, obstacles, and triumphs applying the Keys to Optimal Living to my life in 2014. Optimal Living is a lifestyle to be practiced, learned, and mastered; it is not an over-night transformation. Change is never easy, but always possible.


I have named this section “A Very Good Year” because I believe 2014 holds great things for me and for you. I know that I have the means to make my dreams a reality and nothing can hold me back, but my own excuses.


This year will be challenging. I will be facing starting a new career with an empty bank account, having my first child, selling a house, all while learning to be a husband and a father. Despite these life changes and challenges I’m confident practicing Optimal Living will help me achieve my goals and conquer any problems that may arise. I have the right attitude and am ready for success.


My Vision:


I see The Keys of Optimal Living developing into an essential informational site about personal achievement and success, but its development will be somewhat unorthodox. Usually when one starts a website they’re an expert in the topic.


I am not an expert.


Instead this is a site of discovery, learning, and experimentation. I will document the lessons I learn as I progress through the year using and practising the strategies as I discover them. In the most practical means I will share what works and what doesn’t work.


I considered completing the year and turning the lessons into a tidied, edited book, but I knew without support or a deadline I would never get through it. I decided to write as I both plan and work through a self-developed program. So the information you are getting in this section is raw. As the journey progresses I might contradict myself, change my views, and even the entire direction and definition of optimal living. This is part of the learning curve and I’m aware of these dangers, but…


Without some form of danger there is no adventure!
