My Summer Goals…

Spring break not only got me thinking, but also gave me time to think. I took that time to, it was much needed! That being said I have fully decided upon a few simple goals that I want to knock out before the end of summer.

First and foremost I am ready to invest more in this site, and plan to do so. I have purchased hunterjnelson.com and will soon be migrating over to it. It is there I plan to not only host this blog but also would like to (will) create an interface in which all of my activities can be ‘monitored’, this way myself and others can visibly see what I am doing, how, and why.

What do I mean exactly? Well, I will…

  1. Still share on my blog.
  2. Have my calendar visible, and allow others to schedule events with me through it .
  3. Import my activity on social media some how.
  4. List my goals in a big way, creating a long-term plan that is both timely and detailed.

Once in place I will layout other goals I have worked up recently, to briefly name a few…

  • #1 Services, my automated lawn care company that will be up and running shortly.
  • LuckyWings a non-profit I would like to start-up.
  • Various paragliding goals.
  • Finishing construction of my house. Finally!

Hunterjnelson.wordpress.com has given me a place to share what I am working on, and what I aspire to do. Soon it shall do so in a whole new way, in accomplishing this one goal I will bring to light all others, large and small.

What am I doing this morning?

I am going to simply…

  1. Eat slowly. If you cram your food down your throat, you are not only missing out on the great taste of the food, you are not eating healthy. Slow down to lose weight, improve digestion, and enjoy life more. Read more.

  2. Drive slowly. Most people rush through traffic, honking and getting angry and frustrated and stressed out. And endangering themselves and others in the meantime. Driving slower is not only safer, but it is better on your fuel bill, and can be incredibly peaceful. Give it a try.Read more.

These are two of the 72 ideas to simplify your life that I shared in a previous post that I will be giving attention too.

I usually end up scarfing down a meal and speeding to school every morning, but will not tomorrow. Accompanying and complimenting these new ideologies will be my new sleep schedule, which has been going great!

Take it easy today! I am.

Who inspires me? Part 2

A few days ago I made a post about who inspires me, in which I looked at a few people I thought were just grand. I gave great attention as to what I found so inspiring in these people, focusing mostly one individual (joe seeber) that just recently began to catch my attention. In this post I would like to introduce yet another person that has quite simply rocked my world. He operates on the internet under the name, “NutnFancy”. His introduction starts with a short back story…

Who inspires me?

It is very important to look toward people, see what they are doing, take inspiration from them, and learn from them. Most of those who fit this bill in my world are canopy sports athletes. Rob who gave me my first wing, Matt my instructorPál Takáts, Jeb Corliss, and so on…

They are people I aspire to be like, not only because they can and have done amazing things, but because I see how they are ambitiously pursuing life and taking it for all its worth. This is something that only comes with great determination, forethought, and the right mindset. The conditions in which they live day-to-day serves to be a true testament that they have what it takes, not only to get through the day but so see many more. It is not without great consideration they fly. It is not with out great consideration they make any choices.

Recently I have found yet another face to look toward; in my blogs infancy I was excited to get a few followers and likes, most of which I discovered were only looking for web site traffic (which I can understand and respect). One like however brought me to a blog that really struck me. The content was very genuine, Continue reading

If you want to know what its like – Paragliding

It felt great to bring in a little more personal content in the last week here, particularly when I posted about speed flying. So today I would like to share a bit more about paragliding. It is one of the singular greatest things I have brought into my life, and I could talk about it endlessly. Today however I will not leave you subject to a paragliding rant but will instead share with you a video. No words can express what paragliding is like, nor could any picture or video… but this one comes about as close as it gets!

If you would like to get to know more about my paragliding ventures, please check out my other blog PxParaglider!

A few videos were just shared with me; they were interviewing Richard Saul Wurman, the creator of Ted Talk. I loved what this man had to say.

That the key to creating/designing great things is to first design your life.

I touched on this in a post on simplifying your life, the concept rings very true. Think about how conducive a well fitted lifestyle is to success, it almost goes without saying. However, you often have to take a step back and look at the simple things to get oriented. It’s all too easy to cloud your judgment and draw faulty correlation’s as to why you are struggling with something.

Have you taken a step back and looked at your life lately?
