I Project Projects

As liberally as I use the term “project,” I suppose I shouldn’t be so vague. Unfortunately, my ambiguity on certain topics is unintentional. I am making this up as I go so certain things won’t become clear until down the road when enough of my random thoughts merge to form a discernible concept. Everything feels like a project to me right now, but I might be able to set a few things straight.

One of my primary objectives with Wall Woes and its “projects” is to master the art of controlled mind-wandering. My greatest ideas come about when I’m not actively thinking. I’ve spent years struggling to learn and figure things out, only to discover that innovation is born of imagination and creativity. That said, the operative word is “controlled.” Somehow, I need to let my mind wander freely within the boundaries of what’s relevant to what I’m tying to accomplish.

This is where all my projects come in. Each one is essentially an extension of those boundaries, allowing my mind to drift progressively further. As long as all projects contribute to, or benefit from Wall Woes in some way, I’ll be content to lose myself in thoughts that pertain to them. But really, what are these projects?

Wall Woes is THE project. It’s the heart of my whole operation. All the juicy details hang out on the Wall Woes’ W’s page. The rest of my projects can be divvied up into two categories: Personal and Business. That’s fancy speak for short- and long-term goals, respectively. My list of personal projects is essentially a to-do list, made up of relatively simple, specific tasks. My business projects will remain quite vague for now as they are distant goals whose fate will ultimately be decided by the collective outcome of my personal projects. Given the constant evolution of all my projects and their importance to my success, I had to devise a strategy to keep them organized. Allow me to introduce my project for projects, the Projects page!

The Great Wall

One of my biggest challenges in this adventure is coming up with the capital to cover the start-up costs of my business ventures. Instead throwing my hands up like I did in the good ‘ol days, I’ve decided to have a little fun with it. I am starting small — think bite size — and working my way up. To make things interesting, and because I really don’t have a choice in the matter, I’m making a point to invest as little personal money as possible into Wall Woes and its projects. I wanna build this puppy up from scratch.

The Approach

There exist several sites online that provide quick and easy ways for anyone with a constructive hobby and some creativity to make a little money. It just so happens that I like to make things, so I will capitalize on that with a few creations that require little to no funding. To help move things along, I will increase my exposure and haphazardly support the local movement by exploiting my personal network of friends and family in the area. A few favors and some sweet talking and I’ll be blazin’ my trail to success.

As cash flow allows, I will reinvest into bigger and better projects. Chronicles of each project will be posted and will include relevant details, tips, pics and links. Meanwhile, a list of my current projects is always available on the Projects Page, which will be available soon, and updated weekly at least.

Mongolians

I got 99 wall woes and a Mongolian ain’t one.
