My name is Patrick Icasas, and I suck.
I don’t know who you are, but chances are you suck, too.
But that’s why we’re here, isn’t it? Nobody likes the feeling of “not being good enough,” and there are few harsher critics than yourself. Which is good, because the only one who can really motivate you is yourself.
Who am I?
I’m a thirty-plus year old father and a husband. I’m a freelance writer, an aspiring author, and a marketer. I’ve played everything from paintball to basketball to baseball. I blog, I cook, I teach, I sell. I can sing mostly on-key, and I can draw a mostly round-ish circle.
I do a lot of things. Some of them better than others. Some of them worse than others.
Just like you, I imagine.
Why this blog?
If the above section hasn’t clued you in, I do a lot of things, and am interested in a lot of things. But no matter how good I get at any of them, there’s always room for improvement. And though it comes with experience, plenty of practice and training helps.
I firmly believe that how you approach your training is just as important as how often. This blog is an attempt to keep reminding myself of the right approach and stay focused, while sharing the lessons I’ve learned with you, in the hope that it will help you improve, too.
This blog isn’t about sports, hobbies, crafts, or job skills (although it will touch on those from time to time). It’s about the attitudes and methods you use to get better.
Join me in my journey
So walk with me! Be my training buddy as we explore the trials of self-improvement. Share your stories of hard training and difficult practice. I’ll celebrate every milestone with you, and pour champagne over your head when you reach your goal (and then give you a supportive kick in the backside when you get too complacent).
