P3 Project: Day 13 of 1400 - Relevations in Pottery & the Art of War

This is another of those multi-blogs where I discuss a couple of things at once that are unrelated but happened in the same day or so. Most times they are completely unrelated but in this unique case, they are. There are rare occasions that I can look at another person and tell them that I simply do not trust them. I'm a pretty trusting and forgiving person (most times) who's always willing to give a person a second chance. After all, we all deserve a second chance, right?

But that second chance comes with a warning: Screw me over again and I'll make your life miserable.

But let's start with the cheerful stuff first, okay? No need to begin this post so negatively...

P3 Project: Day 10 of 1400 - Carpe Diem

Seize the day. Hold it hostage.

This is my battle cry this week. My insecurities are getting the better of me and I have to do something about them. And what better way to reassure yourself of your own personal worth than the make some BIG progress on a important project? So, with that being said, I'm going to roll a couple of posts into one big one. Anyone have an issue with that? Oh yeah, no one ever answers these questions. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

So, I (think) I have the Rosetta Stone software installed properly. All four languages.

Yup, your read that right. German, Latin American Spanish, Japanese and Farsi. Brain, prepare to be beaten.

P3Project: [Update: Appearance: P90x]

I have found myself in possession of the entire P90x workout system and will be beginning Thursday, March 31st. Why the 31st? I have to buy the dumbbells, the nutritional supplements, the chin up bar... and it will all be streaming through my 360.

Who says that your video game console can't get you into shape?

I'll be posting the pictures of my before on the 30th of March and beginning in earnest on the 31st. Wish me luck as this is a big part of the project, liking what I see when I look in the mirror.

On a completely unrelated side note, I'm starting to believe that I can make this work now. Maybe I can become the perfect version of myself with only a little work, determination and the support of my friends and family. Who knows?

P3 Project: Day 6 of 1400 - Limitless

Okay, first things first...

To all of my readers who visit this page: go see Limitless. Seriously. Not joking. Have I made my point?
Good. Now, on to the blogging!

Okay, so yesterday was date night and we went to go see Limitless because as anyone who knows about this project knows, this is the movie from which the question that caused this endeavor came from. (Wow, that was a confusing statement and I wrote it) For the record, I thought that was what I was shooting for, to be Eddie Morra...

That would be awesome, but is ultimately impossible for one reason: There is no NZT. Bummer.

Or at least not exactly.

P3 Project: Day 5 of 1400 - Saints and Sinners

I know what you're thinking...

And the answer is no.

This is not in anyway religious. Well, not really.

This is about people who deserve sainthood and the trials they face. Or rather the trials they face which makes them deserve sainthood.

Let me tell you a story about a guy, a girl and a villain.

P3 Project: Day 5 of 1400 - Temperature Control

Okay, so it is a well known fact that I have issues controlling my temper. It's not a surprise to anyone. So when I am seconds from blowing up, I tend to get a little short with people. It's not a shortcoming, more like a endearing character flaw...

Okay, it's a major character flaw. I get it. But I'm working on it... I promise. (crosses my heart and fingers behind back)

P3 Project: Day 3 of 1400 - Benefits of Not Smoking

So, Saturday morning, Elli and I went to hang out with the Keffers, which is always relaxing. However, as any of you who know me know, I've had a problem with quitting smoking for the past three or four years now, which never seemed like a big issue to me before. However, after not smoking for a while, I got to see an actual tangible benefit to it for once. Little Keffer was running around in the yard kicking a soccer ball and being the good uncle that I am, I decided to join him.

P3 Project: Day 1 of 1400 - Full Steam Ahead

This is the first day of this... social and inter-personal experiment and I woke up feeling no different than I did when I went to sleep last night. Which, I suppose, is to be expected. But I'm also trying to get into the habit of posting something more often than not so...

Impossible before Breakfast: The Blueprint

I have spent a lot of time wishing I were someone else, somewhere else. Now, I know who and where that person is. Here is a rough draft of what I plan to put myself through in the next three years. Some of these things seem self-explanatory but these are just the roughest, most base versions on the images in my head. After some consideration, I realize that the most important thing that I'll want from my friends while I do this is emotional support, encouragement, and patience. It will be the single most important thing that gets me through this.

Impossible before Breakfast: The P3 Project

"When you aim for perfection, you discover it's a moving target."  ~George Fisher
To all my friends who know me well, prepare to take a refresher course. ~Kevin M. Williams

The pursuit of perfection is not a sprint, nor a marathon. It's a death march. No one person is perfect. (And to all of my religious friends reading this saying, "Well, there was this one guy... He doesn't count in this conversation ;P) It's commonly accepted that it is an impossible endeavor. No one person can be perfect for precisely the reason that Mr. Fisher states: It's a moving target. However, in all reality, that is the wrong way to look at it. Perfection is a moving target because we are constantly evolving. Changing. But that doesn't mean that we can't be perfect. It just means that we have to re-define our quarry. We're not looking for permanent perfection, just to be in that zone where perfect resides and able to evolve, adapt and change as it moves. But to do that, we need to find out what the perfect version of ourselves really is and then achieve that goal. I believe that anyone can do it. And to prove it...

I'm going to do it. I will become the perfect version of myself. In three years.
