Hello Out There!

This is my first entry into my blog for personal development, so if you are reading this I’d like to welcome you to this site.

My name is Scott H. Young and I am obsessed with personal development. I am constantly seeking ways to improve and maximize my own experience of life. While others may not have such a sole focus on their own personal development, I created this website and this blog, to let others share in the knowledge I have obtained from my own research and experiments in how to make life better.

It seems that my work is cut out for me. I simply picked a quick background theme for my wordpress account (that is the software I am using to run this blog!). On top of that I don’t have a homepage yet! But, one of the skills I have gained from my research into personal development has been to always do what is most important first. So hopefully I can provide some valuable articles while I continue to work on updating the website.

I am also working on a piece of interactive software that will help you build goal-setting skills. Goal setting is a skill, and therefore needs practice more than just understanding. By having a fun interactive format, accompanied with written content, I hope it will really provide a completely new approach to personal development. The program is early in development and I expect a late August release, but I will also keep you updated on my progress.

Hopefully you guys can give me feedback about what I am doing right and what I am doing wrong so that I can improve my blogging skills. This may be a new blog but I have high hopes for creating tons of free and valuable content that has an impact on peoples lives.

So from myself to you I say, “Hello Out There!”

    Hi Scott
    I have been a regular reader of your blog since last month or so. I found your posts to be very useful and encouraging. I have decided to go through each and every post from the day you started your blog. Best of luck for your further education which you are shortly going to pursue further. It really amazes me that a person of your age is writing such wonderful stuff. Keep going !!

    Hi Scott

    I have been a regular reader of your blog since the last 24 hours or so. I found your posts to be very useful and encouraging. I have decided to go through each and every post from the day you started your blog.

    I’ve been a fan of Steve Pavlina and stumbled across your site via one of the track backs. I am very impressed to find the quality of your blog/articles I’ve read so far is on par with Steve’s. Congratulation and keep up the good work!

    Thanks Shannan,

    Glad you like the website and have fun pouring through the archives. There is a little over 150 posts so far (although some of these are smaller news bytes for the site and not full articles). A little less than Steve’s 500+ but I’ve only been here for a few months.

    Thanks for coming to the site, Enjoy!

    Hello Scott,

    I’ve being reading your stuff for longer than 6 months (today 2009), quite impressive and useful.

    Being around your age, sharing the same ambition of “getting more from life” I appreciate all the stuff you share, specially when you recommend the things you read. So yeah, I take your writing seriously and even take notes on articles I like.

    good job!

    Hi Scott. I’m posting here on your first ever blog post for this site because I feel like it. I have been living indoors for periods longer then six months at a time since 2008. That was also when I first came across your blog via a different blogs “blog roll”.

    I became an occasional reader of your site for a little while there after. It’s not 2010, It’s my first time back here in about six months. I don’t remember a single thing I’ve ever read on here. Except the first post I saw now when you were just starting out.

    It’s amazing to see how far you’ve come with this. This blog is a success. I’m sure you’re making a decent income from it. Congrats.

    I am now at a stage where I need to change my life too. I dropped out of College over two years ago for a whole range of reasons I wont bother going into. I’ve never had a job, and for the past two years I’ve done nothing but wallow in my own miserable existence.

    I’m going to try my hand at making money online. But before I can do anything I need to read up and expand my own knowledge. I am now going to systematically read through every single post you’ve ever made on this site. That’s right. I’m a hermit, I have no life, and my savings don’t try up for another three weeks.

    I have three whole weeks of free time left, and then I’m going to use it to read your entire blog.

    Hi Scott,

    I came across your site because I too was looking to to a bit more with my life, I always have been looking to improve and learn a variety of things. My issue has always been deciding where to start, or what’s more important, and getting caught up in the business of life’s obligations…and the excuses for not living my life to the absolute fullest, but you have inspired me. Everyday I commit to reading one of your articles…1 down and many more to go!—Thank you for this new found excitement!

    Hey Scott,
    You have amazed me with you content. I’ve been looking for a good blog on Personal Development for a year or two. This is by far the best. Keep up with your work.
