“Staying ahead of the curve.”


RELEVANCE

In a nation where technology is constantly changing, you must be able to work well with it to stay relevant. But what about the norms in society in regards to how we communicate with each other.

And one of those shifts that you must take on to stay relevant is how people communicate. There are people who have been in monogamous relationships for years, then end the relationship. Next thing you know, they have a hard time trying to get back out in the dating world.

It’s because they are not up on the current state of dating. And it’s not just dating where people find it hard to cope in life when they don’t stay relevant. People also lose the ability to understand why certain political decisions are starting to take hold.

STAYING THE COURSE

How do you keep from being left behind? Because it is so easy to get left behind because you’re focused on the things that aisle you. Especially if there is a new generation that pops up where you can’t understand why they are the way they are anymore.

You now become the grumpy old man or woman because you are unable to survive. So everything becomes a this generation this and that; but in reality you can’t hold on. You are starting to lose your footing.

So what must you do to stay in the game, you have to exercise your mind. Push yourself to understand what is going on besides shutting down to the opportunities. The change is tough because you’re used to one thing, but it is necessary for your survival.

BEING LEFT BEHIND

What’s scary is that there are so many people who refuse the change. Then once something better comes along and they have not prepared they get left behind. This creates a feeling of sour grapes in their mouths.

The above video on YouTube is from an interview that Oprah Winfrey conducted with regards to Gay Marriage. People have been so stern against this shift which is bound to happen. And if you are unable to accept it, then you’re going to find it impossible to live. Because there is no use in fighting the inevitable.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
