What I’m Focused on Right Now

Updated January 3, 2021

Over the last four years, I’ve published a blog post at least once a fortnight – but more often than not, every week. And for more than two years, that’s also included a podcast episode.

For someone who’s already stretched with client work, it’s been tough maintaining this commitment, but I felt the work mattered and so the effort was warranted.

Not long after my friend, Jon, entered palliative care, I decided to take stock of where I was spending my time. I wanted to devote more energy to my son, Tommy, plus I wanted to pick up my camera again and spend more time in nature. So far, it’s been worth it. In fact, I sense another shift in focus coming on…

Since I began blogging in late 2015, I’ve focused on issues around midlife reinvention, remote work, and finding your path to the work – and a life – that’s right for you. These issues remain important, although I don’t need to beat my drum about remote work anymore, thanks to the recent global experiment.

So here’s what I’m focused on right now:

  • Still resisting the urge to write or record podcasts until I decide where to devote my energy
  • Getting much better at photography – something I did professionally many years ago and loved with a passion
  • Building a new website – check it out at peterfritzphoto.com.
  • Improving my health – I quit drinking and smoking (a few small cigars a day) in early September, and now I lift weights and walk or cycle almost daily
  • Still pondering a future that includes the things I love – writing, photography, graphic design and video

Thanks for checking this out, and as always, write to me any time.
