The Angus Agenda

I've been thinking about a variety of things over the last week or so. Mainly in the last few days to be honest. A bit of a 'Angus life overview' if you like.

I have come to a number of decisions about who I am, what I want to be doing and where and I want to get to. In some ways I guess that's why actualsean thought I was a lot more chilled out yesterday when he saw me - and not just because of an afternoon chatting about ninja squirrels.....

My decisions are probably going to upset a few people but these unfortunately can not be helped. I hope they can understand where I'm coming from and my reasons for why I have drop certain projects I'm either already involved with or was about to become more so in.

For once in my life I am actually going to put the myself on the top of the 'Angus Agenda' with some clear goals and aims. I'm also going to put a number of people I feel very close to on that agenda and make sure I spend more time with them as opposed to trying to crowd every waking moment of my life trying to keep busy so I don't have to think about things.

As I've mentioned in previous posts - the things I was trying to ignore/remove from my thoughts are now so old as not to be worth the time and effort in not dwelling on them anymore. For the larger part I have actually managed to forget what they were anyway - so I guess it's been a successful venture....

Two of my main three concerns will remain my various jobs. One being at Leisure Games trying to figure out ways to make the company grow further and build upon the recognition we have already got within the industry and consumerland. The other being the publishing business with Cubicle 7 - don't want to let that one slip! My third concern will be friendships, especially establishing some closer friendships and also possibly looking, at somestage, into getting into a serious relationship again. My last serious relationship was three or four years ago? Something like that I think. Whilst I did then go out with Sarah for about a year (give or take the seperation time) and she is still a close friend it was not going to be a longterm relationship and we both knew that.

2005 has on the whole been an interesting year and I'm generally very happy with the way it's been. 2006 however will be used to build upon this and take the Angus Agenda further.

Yeah, I'm thinking things along the same lines. Need to get serious, make some priorities and expend more effort on the people who reciprocate the investment I make in them.

Agreed Mr or Mrs Anon!

So you'd rather concentrate on expanding your empire of porn with 'Cubicle 7' than focus on some of the hot new dance moves we were conceiving for our 50 boy BoyBand 'Safety in Numbers'...and I thought I could rely on you to help steer us to chart glory.

Hey, the two can still work side-by-side!

It's about time we had an openly all-gay porn boyband afterall!

Now....that WOULD be a hit!

Cool.
Well, what can I say...

Good luck in whatever you do, and I hope it works out.
Here's to a Great 2006!

Good. Angus should come first for once.

BTW...If you need any help with administrative stuff for Cubicle 7 lemme know. I'm good with that sorta thing. I really want to see this take off, and not just because of Grim. But because I know you love it so much. And I will help you with that if I can.

Thank you. I'll certainly keep that in mind and see if I can use your admin touch :)

From what I know from this end, you could. :o) I promise to be gentle.

Also by having someone helping you with admin stuff, it'll ease some of the load off your shoulders. Leaving you free to do more important things with the company, like securing ideas and contracts for books. :o)

(Ask Grim, admin and organisation is what I do. And I'm good at it.)

Assuming I am not blacklisted (that would be funny!), count me in if you need anything I can help with (any writing/proofreading/related editorial stuff). I do that for a living, after all! :)
