About this blog

This blog, originally called Tough-Minded Optimism W/T.K. Coleman, began as a personal experiment in self-development.

On May 10th, 2011, I made a commitment to writing one blog post every day as a way of reinforcing my personal philosophy of self-determinism and creative autonomy.  

My initial goal was to see if I could meet the challenge of writing about my ideas everyday while observing any effects this routine would have on my overall outlook on life.

I’ve been blogging everyday for almost three years and have enjoyed every minute of it. I’ve learned and evolved quite a bit as a direct result of creating so many posts.  For me, blogging has opened what Ton Jörg calls “vistas of possibility” in my life. The personal discipline, enhanced self-awareness, and the increased sense of confidence and curiosity I’ve cultivated through writing has inspired me to branch out and blossom in many new ways.

I am a happier, healthier, and more productive person as a result of my commitment to daily writing.

If you’d like to know more about me, feel free to visit my Q&A page devoted to addressing any questions from my readers about my  personal interests, professional experiences, and philosophical ideas.

  1. I recently found your blog while surfing the web. i cant tell you how helpful it has been for me. i am 35 years old and going thru a very difficult time in my life. 2012 has been full of disappointments, sadness and frustrations. i am currently separated from my husband of 7 years (we’ve been together 14) and my family has been experiencing numerous obstacles due to poor financial planning over the years. your blog is uplifting and always seems to have exactly what i need to hear every time i log on. thank you for your “two cents”.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      For starters, thanks for taking the time to share that with me. I sincerely appreciate it. I’m honored to know that my thoughts have been able to provide some relief or perspective during difficult times. Those challenges you’ve shared with me are some very demanding ones, but I’m pulling for you and your family as you strive to sort things out. Feel free to let me know if there’s anyway I can help. Thanks again for writing me. Cheers, TK :)

  2. Your blog is a seemingly simple package, that contains pieces of profound wisdom.

    Not just helping words or re-hashing of uplifting thoughs, but a wisdom that comes from genuine effort to apply good intention in practical, everyday life.

    Never neglect the simple power of a man speaking the truth.

    Never neglect the strength of benevolence without naivety.

    Cherish the one who speaks the language of wisdom, with an open heart.

    Many Thanks,

Please share your thoughts
