The Crossroads

   Article:The Crossroads of Should and Must

     The crossroads between should and must. We travel a path and here comes along a decision(the crossroad, the fork in the road), there are two roads and one of them is what you should do and the other is what you must do. Each leads to a different road, and ultimately, a different outcome. A 'must' is an unavoidable requirement. A 'should' is more like a desirable goal. I need I've been treating it is like a two-way street, and I have been constantly making U-turns. 
     So my perspective really differentiates from the author's view. I see decisions as being able to be a back-and-forth matter with should and must. The way in which the author, Elle Luna, sees it is as a stop in the road and two one-way paths leading to opposite directions. As I stated in the paragraph prior to this one, the way you base your decisions is constantly different. 
     Though our point-of-view on decisions are different, I highly agree with Luna and her aspect on choosing 'must'. I feel as if must will lead us to our full potential and to what we require. The risk intensifies with must but the rewards are greater as well.

Interpret.


Look At My Brain

     I like to think of my mind as a busy one. I am always thinking about something. Seldom is my mind ever just blankly lost in space. It's the mind of an innovator, something we are all capable of being.
     My thinking is rarely put out into the real world mainly because there is so much of it. Whatever I do put out into the real world, I always try to get it as close to perfection as possible(by the way, I do see myself as a perfectionist). We all have a little bit of OCD in us, if not a lot.

Raising Digital Awareness

     I want the my blog's visitors to be entertained or interested when they browse through my blog archive. I would like for my audience to notice what I type about. I would like a larger traffic of visitors because I don't want these posts to be for nothing. What I would like to find out is, what are my visitors' needs? There are some subtle things within my blog that help with convenience. From small things like refraining from using a lot of white on my blog to avoid greater energy usage for the visitors' computer, to bigger things like keeping my content well-organized. I believe human ideas/interaction goes beyond the use of digital tools because without said contact with humans, what would be the point of the digital tools? Together though, they work cooperatively to raise their value.

I, Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs reinvent things for the better. They're passionate about it and shouldn't be afraid to fail. Sacrifices have to be made to get to where they want to be.
a. Certain rappers are entrepreneurs. They find new ways to make rap songs interesting, instead of every song being similar or monotone. Most are passionate of what they do, they do it as an outlet for expression. Things are given up to reach the top.

b. I guess I am able to classify myself as an entrepreneur. I actually enjoy what I am doing with this blog but failure is not an option.

c. I think others should stop seeing entrepreneurs by the typical text-book definition. Instead, see the characteristics that come with being an entrepreneur. There can always be an amateur entrepreneur, you gotta start somewhere right? So, you have to make progress to gain expertise and become that much more successful.
