GaryCon Debrief Part One

GaryCon VI (2014) was my second GaryCon after GaryCon III (2011).

I went to GCIII alone and stayed with Forgie who took care of me and showed me the sights. I also got some quality time with Jim Ward. It was a heckuva drive (16.5 hours there in one shot and I think about 12 on the way back).

I had been wanting to return for GCV but an injury kept me away. Circumstances not only allowed me to attend VI but to also bring my companion AND stay at the resort.

Prep

So, I made some choices that eliminated the chance to have a day to prepare for surgery. It causes me stress.

I'm not stressed for the actual surgery, just about getting all the work done beforehand and having my place setup for afterwards.

I can't see making a different choice than I did. I chose a person over my work. As a personal code, I try to choose people over other things and a particular person over all else. This code often leaves me scrambling to do the impossible.

Rhythym

It takes time to make a ritual become natural; to create a routine that works for you.

I find a solid but moderately flexible routine makes me more productive. In fact it's not just "more" productive, but vastly more productive.

I find it very difficult to keep it or get back into it and also zestfully pursue that whole sucking the marrow out of life - which is to say, living to the fullest.

Like many things, it's a balancing act.

Why do I write about this? Who knows. It's time to get some Zzzzzzs and thought I'd post something.

Battle Creek

The first leg of our adventure is complete.

We left at 10:30am and made good time. Two service centre stops and a Cracker Barrel. The border essentially waived us through after we handed over our fruit.

Neither the phones nor the GPS worked near the border but I had a feel for my way.

Fitting in Tight pants

I find myself juggling many items and wondering each day how I am going to fit it all in. I've diversified to remain viable but the line between healthy diversification and spreading too thin is hard to see.

I regret my publishing business has suffered to build my computer solutions which has recently added web hosting to it's repertoire.

Now, I head to GaryCon without product to sell, no projects to pitch, but these are the people I want to work with through TOL Publishing.

Kickstarter is looks to look attractive, but that's for after the Con.

GaryCon Prep

Well, the week prior to GaryCon did not go as planned. Extra work came my way (which is a good thing) but also extra expenses and adversity. Things so easily get pushed off and then the noose tightens.

I'm looking forward to this convention however I am far from ready to head toward it.
