There’s no WiFi in the jungles of Borneo

There’s no WiFi in the jungles of Borneo

Who’s your biggest critic? Are you too hard on yourself? Do you give yourself a break once in a while?

I’ve been writing (and publishing) online for the past 1,387 days in a row. It’s a start, right? ­čśë

It just hit me. In writing that first headline (“hard on yourself”), I realize that I have┬áreached a milestone. I am already┬áno longer as hard on myself. I am still my biggest critic, but I realize that I’m already where I want to be, doing what I love doing and I’m well on my way down the path of success. There’s no turning back and I’m way past the point of no return. I speak and talk freely about what I’m doing and where I’m going. I’m more proud of what I say and who I am that I can remember being in, well, decades.

What I’ve been doing has become who I am.

Borneo? Excuses, excuses! Puh-lease!

There's no WiFi in Borneo.

There’s no WiFi in Borneo.

I used to worry about meeting the daily midnight self-imposed deadline.

I started this post with the idea of a joke about how I could use this as an excuse for not actually hitting Publish in the next few weeks. But I realize now that I don’t need that excuse. In fact, I don’t need any excuses.

I’m above excuses because it’s no longer about what I’m doing or how I’m doing it, but it’s about who I am. I am no longer the person who started writing 1,386 days ago. That person lacked confidence, experience and daring. He was scared, timid and worried what others thought. He wasn’t sure where he was going, how he was going to get there and he was concerned about what others thought about it all.

There is no WiFi in the jungles of Borneo and I don’t care.

I might not be able to hit Publish everyday, but I will write Every Single Day. If I’m breathing, I will be writing. If I’m writing, I will be breathing.

I’m traveling, I’m writing, I am who I have been dreaming of being for years. I have arrived and I’m more than pleased. There are no excuses because excuses are for those who are teetering on the edge of their own beliefs. I am not teetering and the only thing I’m on the edge of is adventure.

About The Author


I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
