Krogg Answer Age-Old Question

Now it time for another installment of Krogg weekly series entitled: "Krogg Answer Age-Old Question."

This week, Krogg take question from Andrew Brisbane of Niwot, Colorado. Timothy ask:

Dear Krogg, I'm a 27 year old graduate student studying Waste Water Management at the University of Colorado. I'm trying to finish my degree on an accelerated schedule, so my course load is considerable. I'm also a single parent of a four old boy, Brian, who is wonderful, but quite a handfull -- my point is I'm a busy man. I'm writing because I made some pretty ambitious new year's resolutions and I need some help keeping them. This year, I resolved to do the following:

1. Write a 1,000+ page novel that outshines the works of Leo Tolstoy
2. Finish inside the top five (overall) at the Kona Ironman World Championships
3. Add a 15,000 sq. ft. addition to the house
4. Lose five pounds.

I know this sounds like a lot, and I know it's only the first day of 2010, but I'm off to a good start -- I went for a jog today, and I wrote an opening line to my novel ("So I'm not what you'd call a novelist. Yet.") Despite this good beginning, I'm slightly worried that once school starts again, I won't have the time to follow through with my goals. Here's my age old question is this: can I have my cake and eat it too? Can I achieve my new year's resolutions and fulfill my scholastic and parental responsibilities? Do you have any tips that might help?

Ambitiously Andrew

Wow Andrew -- Krogg impressed. You ambitious man indeed, but you make good goals. You also pose good age-old question: can I have my cake and eat it too? (Although Krogg more familiar with caveman version: can caveman eat whole mastodon, tusks to tail?) Well Krogg answer is emphatic yes. Krogg see no reason why new year resolutions cannot be accomplish before 2011 -- you need focus and multitasking skills, but Krogg living proof that success can be yours! Yes, Krogg recently ask himself similar question: Krogg very serious mastodon hunter, but Krogg also enjoy blogging. Krogg wonder for a while if blogging interfere with hunting mastodons -- maybe professional mastodon hunting teams think Krogg not serious due to (at times whimsical) blog posts. Krogg ask himself "Krogg, is it possible for caveman to blog but still be serious about hunting mastodons? Well Krogg here to tell you yes! It is possible to eat whole mastodon tusks to tail. However, Krogg do have tip or two for you.

Tip #1:
Looking like a winner is the same as winning.

Take this man for instance (man on right):
Him not look fast. Him not look like race winner -- EVEN THOUGH HIM MAYBE EVEN WIN RACE!

Now look at this bike racer:

See how much faster him look? Him not win race, but judging by picture him look like winner. No? Believe it or not those are SAME man. See Krogg point?

Tip #2

Make New Face to World

Krogg know a thing or two about success. Success come from attitude. Look at this man:

See him unshaved face? See him downcast, vacant stare? This broken man from 2009. No attitude of success in him.

Now look at this man:

See how him have look of winner? See how him have piercing gaze toward distant, ambitious, yet attainable goals? This the look of serious focused winner. This the look of 2010. Believe it or not, these two pictures actually SAME MAN on SAME DAY!!! Amazing difference between look of 2009 and look of 2010, no?

Timothy, good luck with you quest to have successful 2010. Krogg rooting for you.
