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.

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…

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!

Speed flying

Neglecting to share this video would serve as an injustice to life itself! This may be singular most amazing swoop ever done! 
March 18 (my birthday) is less than a month away, it is the date I set for myself marking when I can start speed flying. I was and will continue to venture into the sport with great care… but I got to say I am very excited! I have been sitting on a 10 meeter Ozone Bullet for almost a year now…

A special thanks to Pál Takáts for not only bringing this video to my attention, but also for being a great role model for me to look to!

Simplify your life

 Each day I put great thought into how I spend each moment, will spend each moment, and want to spend each moment.

The projects I have taken on both embody and promote the life style I believe in.  This includes paragliding, my small and ultra efficient home I am building, my passion for web development and what I aspire to use it for, even this very blog.

I have looked to many places for inspiration, and finding great success in many places and wasting time in others. One of the most valuable tools I have found (ever) is the simple living manifesto. I can not stress enough that you should read this. At the very least you should skim it over and let it make you think. I personally revisit this article regularly… its a priceless piece of work and I could never manage to get enough people to look at. I truly hope you do and that it does for you what it has done for me!

Are you interested in web development?

For any one thats looking at getting  into web development I have some advice. In watching a video today I saw this in the comments…

i want to be a website desinger i am 19 turning 20 this year, i really wanna be a website designer,my brother advised me to go take classes, is it worth it?

I had been in this exact position before, so I left the following response.  I shared with him what I wish others would have shared with me as I stepped into coding.

Yes! Way worth it! I have some great insight give your situation. Im turning 20 this next month.

I was going through the standard 4 year business degree process, and not really liking it. I took an HTLM class (just because I was interested) and I am so happy about it. You should really do it!

Don’t be intimidated by everything, its not only easy to learn but also a very accessible field! You can get a start by doing one simple thing; learn HTML.

I would recommend taking a good class if possible of course. On top of that there we have a great you can get help from. Continue reading
