When I first started this blog, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing…
In some ways I still don’t know…
But I do know I’m better at this, than when I first started…
And that’s what you want in life, isn’t it?…
Originally a space to keep accountable to my goals, Perfect Manifesto also enabled me to provide my thoughts on that very broad subject “self-improvement.”
Inspired by various online masculinity thinkers, Perfect Manifesto was literally what it said on the tin, a manifesto all about getting better.
Perfect was meant more as a joke, about the impossibility / thankless task of striving for perfection.
But at times during my journey, the ‘Perfect’ bit did go to my head – I could be quite unforgiving on myself if goals didn’t go to plan.
A fundamental mistake.
Self-improvement is about embracing life, not getting wrapped up in failures and worries about your own mortality.
Over the year, my focus has changed – firstly I avoid going into day-to-day details how my goals are progressing as this offers no value to you the reader.
And I’ve gradually refined what I write about. Originally Perfect Manifesto had a category for everything that covered my goal ambitions.
Most of the categories got little love, and through the years I’ve made the decision to drop writing about them because of:
- lack of knowledge / interest (nutrition)
- not knowing where to take it (Creativity)
- not really knowing what it means (Projects)
- growing to hate writing about the subject matter in my free time (Careers / Work).
Since I created that site over six years ago, I’ve grown as a person, which is good…
Big events have changed my life forever – I’ve gone from single man to family man – when I started, I couldn’t have dreamed I’d be blogging about being a father!
Because of my personal changes, I now focus on the following topics:
My children motivate me to give them the best start in life possible, and my posts focus on being a better father and role model, family life, and exploring the range of rich topics on this subject – from evolving views on fatherhood to masculinity.
My motto when it comes to health is “it’s what works for you” and my posts are here to inspire you as I talked about mental health, fitness, the gym, and wellbeing.
“Be better than yesterday”
There are so many things I could talk about like money and dating. But these areas just aren’t my speciality.
Instead, Perfect Manifesto focuses on ideas and discussions to support your personal development around:
- Confidence / Assertiveness
- Mindset / Mentality
The road less traveled…
