What I’m Doing Now…

A good idea from Derek Sivers inspired this page (explore inspiring examples and create your own here).

Hey there, it’s Desi! Here, you can get a quarterly snapshot of what’s going on with me right now. If you’ve made it this far, I assume you know a bit about me; if not, check out my About page to learn more about who I am. 

Why this page?

We can all relate to being asked, “What are you up to?” when we are out in the world. No matter how often you have to answer that question, the mental energy you put into formulating a response at the moment can be a task (at least for me).

After stumbling upon the Now Page Movement sometime back around 2016 or 2017, I knew that I wanted to create a page like that on my own website, and here we are! This page is a place for you to see what’s going on and a personal reminder of my priorities and goals when I need clarity. 

Should we meet, we’ll most likely strike up a conversation around some of the things mentioned here. And if we don’t meet, you can always connect with me on social media or contact me if you want to know more.
