First of all, thank you to everyone that commented the last time I posted about my situation. It is very humbling to know that so many of you out there are concerned and interested in what is happening with me (I’ve never received more feedback on any post). It is like I have a worldwide support system. Thank you.

After a lot of talking, studying, searching and listening, I know what I have to do and it is simple. I have to do what is in my heart – what makes me feel good – what attracts more good. It is so easy to get stuck, isn’t it? It is so easy to get blinded – just going through the motions every day. It is easy to forget what makes you happy and what draws more opportunity to you.

I don’t know if I am making sense, but to me it is simple. I came to Rich Dad five years ago. At that time we were launching the (now previous) new web architecture. It was horrible. The team was bad, the technology was bad, the position I was in was bad. Since that time, I have been striving, pushing, cajoling, begging, planning for a replacement architecture. Well, that new system was launched at the beginning of this month (November 2007).

I commented in our Tuesday morning meeting following one of the longest weekends of my life that I was feeling a bit of postpartum depression. We had given birth to our baby. A baby with a five-year gestation period. I was whipped. I was done. Bucky Fuller talks about precession – the “side effects” of striving for a goal. In all cases, your true purpose is not in reaching the goal, but in the precessional effects of reaching the goal. This is why when a goal is reached, you feel depressed or unsatisfied. That was not your true purpose. Your true purpose was the precessional effects you created along the way.

That being said, I truly believe that a precessional effect of launching the new web system was me realizing my excitement and love for video production. And what I have realized in the last few weeks is that I need to follow that passion. In fact, just by making that known to people around me, more opportunities have come up (I may have the opportunity to work on a filming with Donald Trump on The Apprentice set in Trump Tower). The magic is beginning to happen again.

I am encouraged. I am ready for a change. I truly believe that the next big leap is straight ahead.
