What is Staying Focused?
Staying Focused is a weekly-ish newsletter that invites you into a raw and unfiltered behind-the-scenes of my journey in life. I say weekly-ish because I aim to be in your inbox on Sunday morning (NZT).
In each newsletter, I share:
an idea that has been ruminating in my mind — that could be anything I am struggling with, anything I’ve overcome, or anything I think you might find useful;
my favourite things of the week — anything I find interesting like movies, books, podcasts, and videos;
content that I have published;
a quote from anything I have read.
Who am I?
Best explained with a timeline:
1993: I was born in Palmerston North — where I spent most of my life growing up.
2016: I graduated from the University of Auckland as a fully qualified optometrist and moved down to Christchurch to start my working life.
2021: I moved back to Palmerston North to focus on a career change away from optometry into software development.
2023: I started a new career path as a web developer.
the future is still being written… so why not become a part of it?
I think sharing my journey is something that could help others.
I’d love for you to walk this path with me.
