Bookmark: State-Building: Governance and World Order in the 21st Century
I started blogging in 2005 when I quit a stable-but-unfulfilling job to find a better use of my talents. In short, I was looking to make change in my life, but had no idea how to do it. So, I jumped into the unknown with nothing but trust that it would all work out. Writing about it was supposed to help me process the fear and anxiety associated with such a move. At worst, the blog would chronicle adventures, reflections, observations, and occasional mishaps with no real point. What followed was an incredible story, a summary of which can be found here. The calculated risk was clearly worth it, so was recording the journey. The original blog has taken various forms over the years and currently exists under the moniker Make Change. The rest of this blended blog is, as it suggests, a compilation of my expanded interests over the years.
