“Adventures of an ordinary man acquiring things”

“He began to acquire things, which is how an ordinary man becomes a titan.” -Jerry Weintraub 

Well, here it is. The first post on my official website. It’s kinda weird writing in this tone. Feels like those movie scenes where the actor or actress is talking in their heads while they write. Anyways, that is exactly what I’m doing… Let’s get into this post.

I’m just an ordinary man. A simple, relatively intelligent bloke, if I may say so myself. I woke up one day and said I need a personal site. I need something to write thoughts, ideas, capture moments in my life that matter. Essentially I need a time capsule. This is it. At the age of 24 (soon to be 25) I have my life ahead of me. There will be countless professional decisions that will need to be made. I feel there is no better form of thinking than writing. There’s also something liberating about writing where anyone you know or some kid half-way around the world can read your thoughts.

This is a “private” blog. Somewhere I can express my ideas openly. I’m not here to sell anything. I’m here to record my life in as personal or professional manner possible.

What’s my life’s goal? Simply to get as wealthy and healthy as possible. Take care of my family and be a leader for those in my life. The title of this post came from a book I read written by Jerry Weintraub. What an excellent person. There’s a lot of characteristics and habits I will apply from his life. He started with nothing. He had charisma and a dream. He made it happen. In his book there was a profound sentence that caught my attention. I’m paraphrasing here, “ordinary men who acquire things become titans”. Well, that sums up my dream. As much as I hate to say it, I don’t have a 180 IQ. I don’t have any talents some schmuck down the street possesses. I’m an ordinary guy. However, what I have is charisma, a dream, and enough intelligence to turn it into a reality. What I don’t have. The habits, behaviors, skillset of high performing businessmen/investors. I have the time and energy to adopt them. That’s what I’m doing in my life.

So, here is my blog. Here is where I will track my life and business. Starting from nothing I aim to become a titan (whatever that means). To mean it means a man of impregnable character, who leads from the front, takes massive action to acquire things he holds dear; to be successful in life. A man who builds things, turns ideas into tangible realities. This is who I aim to be. And it all starts from me.
