Growing and maintaining a baby requires a lot of time and effort. I know that seems obvious, but it’s worth mentioning up front becuase it’s the key fact that drives everything else in this post. Many of you know that I have had a couple of part time jobs since we arrived in Madison two July’s ago. When you include the early morning alarm, the late evening stress, and the shifting of childcare duties to your spouse, is it truly part time? Add a second kid to the mix, and there is no time for anything else outside of the work day. No joke, in 6 months to a year we’ll be running the dishwasher twice per day.
I am a millennial, so I expect to be a fully engaged father. Let’s also not forget that earning a Ph.D. for Mrs. Integration Bodywork is Team Robison’s primary goal. As Sherlock Holmes said, “when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” This is a long winded way of saying I have quit my part time job and am now working in my practice full time.
Part of working for myself full time is going to include blogging on a regular schedule (for serious this time). I plan to focus on topics that will support the bodywork my clients receive. These include good movement and lifestyle habits, events and causes I support in and around Madison. I will also include anything bodywork-related I think might be interesting to my readers.
And who, exactly, are you people? To start with, I hope my clients will be readers. That goes hand-in-hand with who I’m writing for. I’m writing for people who want to move and feel better everyday, and are willing to make changes to achieve that goal.
Let’s be clear, that does not mean this I will limit this blog to reducing existing body aches and pains. There are plenty of people interested in running faster, lifting heavier, sending a red point project, or charging the perfect line. I’m here for you too, both in my practice and in the content I’m going to create.
Now, public accountability is often a useful tool for goal setting. I’ve stated my intention to blog regularly before, with not much follow though,so here’s my challenge. I will publish 51 more posts by February 10, 2017, or I will take the Polar Plunge. It’s February, and a lot of it is iced over, so this is no joke.
I was just listening to a podcast interview with Seth Godin, and he said,
If you’re just saying, I’m really clever, and I know what you should want, and when you tell people what it is, they don’t want it, you’re either talking to the wrong people, or you made the wrong thing.
In other words, if you’d like to get something out of this blog that I haven’t mentioned, leave a comment, and I’ll do my best to make it happen.
