Purposefully Productive

I wanted to create something that meant something.

So here goes it. So this is going to be RAW and REAL. I'm starting this blog today for 2 main reasons. But first I want to put this disclaimer out here that I'm creating this purely for selfish reasons. There's going to be no edit, no grammar check, no nothing. But ok let me get into the reasons that I started.

1. Accountability

For the past few years in my Adult Life I've been making yearly goals for myself. I don't like to call them new years resolutions because I feel like they are more likely to not be followed through, so I call them goals. Yes, they are the same thing, but this is just the way my mind works. ok. And you know how life goes the first couple of months you follow through as best as you can and then you start drifting off around March or so. That was me. But, to my defense school literally made it impossible for me to continue the schedule I was on. I will go into more of this in a later post, but I just wanted to lay down some background information. 

So back to my goals. July 1st, I stopped making excuses for myself, wrote down all of my goals for the next 6 months of 2019, and I'm using this blog to hold myself accountable. I'm a visual person so when I see things over and over again that is the only way things will stick, that is the only way things will get done. So I am adopting that method for my life. This blog is to hold myself accountable for the goals that I have set for myself. I am young, I am ambitious, and I believe I have a greater purpose on this Earth. The only obstacle is myself. But, not anymore. 

2. Documentation of my Journey

Like I said the reason of creating this blog is purely selfish. I want to be able to look back at where I started, the highs, the lows, every aspect of this beautiful journey called entrepreneurship. The days where I have accomplished my goals, I want to be able to look back and say "Wow, look where I started and look where I am now." 

I was having a conversation yesterday with someone and I was expressing my "must-haves" in life. And I found myself putting a disclaimer on my wants and needs and after the conversation I had to do some self-reflection on that because I do that often. And the person told me basically that its ok to be selfish at times and we as a society put a negative connotation on "being selfish" but sometimes you have to do what you have to do for yourself in certain aspects of life. Which I knew this all along, but maybe that was Gods way of confirming for me through this stranger I had just met for the very first time. Hence this blog. But I said all that to say if someone does come across this "blog" (it still feels weird calling it that) and it helps them in some way, form, or fashion. Then we Thank God.

I am solely going to be speaking for Onyeka Ibe. Everything will be from my perspective, my thoughts, my experiences. If you find this entertaining, encouraging, or a complete waste of your time then thats fine. Enjoy or not. I'm not doing this for you. Lol. That sounds so bad. This is just going to be a way for me to put my million thoughts per minute brain down on paper.

Yea, thats it. So this is going to be about entrepreneurship, being a student, managing time, life, family, and my spiritual journey all in one forum. I just took a deep breath because the next 6 months is going to be Purposefully Productive... and just like that folks we have the name of this blog!

So I'm going to end this now because its getting quite lengthy and if you made it this far, yous a real one.
