Here’s an old blog post that I wrote in March, 2006.
I had a job back then. The passion I had back then inspires me when I read it myself.
It was that passion that eventually led me to create Digital Access Pass.
If you still have a job, hope you get inspired at least a wee bit :-).

I Am Superman
Remember Daredevil? He is the blind, avenging lawyer who fights the bad guys in the court of law during the day, and bashes them up on the streets at night.
I am kinda like that.
More like Clark Kent, actually – I slog away quietly at my day job during the day. It’s like being in a Kryptonite cubicle.
I come back home at night, and my strength starts to return as my children run into my arms, my 6-pack abs return, my muscles start tightening up, my underwear and my pants interchange positions ;-), and my tee starts splitting at the seams as the night gets older.
And when I finally sit down at my computer after putting my kids to bed, and hit the “Ctrl-M” button (‘check mail’) in my Eudora client, I’m invincible! I’m untouchable, I’m unbeatable! I’m the King of the World!
As the clock hits 1 AM, I suddenly hear the voice of my mother calling me back inside the house on a nice sunny afternoon, asking me to stop playing cricket with my friends, to come back in and do my homework; “Right now”, she says!
Oh, how I hated having to stop playing – only to go inside to do homework! Ugh!
I feel the same way at the thought of having to stop working on my site, on my blog, on my newsletter, on my scripts – only to go back to bed so that I get just enough sleep to get through another day of “work”. Ugh!
Now you know what it feels like when you’ve found your niche – you feel like you’re Superman!
I am Superman. Every single day. 7 PM – 7 AM.
Go on, it’s now your turn to be not just Superman – it’s your turn to be whatever it is that you want to be.
Here’s the original post.
