Homework Part 5… NO! Part 4

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

So I have been getting some instruction to pick the one thing that is going to get me to what was outlined in Homework Part 3.  Being a serial procrastinator who is typically busy anyway on top of being distracted by everything, I manager to get brought along on a business trip to represent my company.  So.. Mix that in with being a workaholic, I just haven't had time until now to get my homework assignment….  So now, it's after midnight… this is due at 10AM.  I had better get started huh?

So I have started a new website called  What is "Zack Does" you ask?

"Zack Does" is a media expression on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Sound Cloud. 

The general premise of "Zack Does" is that I have spent the better part of my life trying to substitute things for experiences, and I am missing out on a lot.  I am going to take my life back from the acquisition of crap and survival to not only live, but thrive through experiences.  I am done being scared of what other people think… I am done being scared of losing things… I am going to live again.  All with the underlying tone that I am living for Jesus.


So right now, I am having a conversation with my oldest about how I can't do this alone.  She is excited and my son is excited…


So… We are moving toward Comedy how to's, motivation, and scary/crazy things like short videos on twitch… like old guy does game reviews on 10 minutes of gameplay….  Silly things like that.   We will be getting together with all the kids to… pardon me… all the creative team to review…  

The idea is that BSA seems a little farther off…   Not dead…  Just not something I can do soon.  So, if I can grow this media campaign, the way I want to… I will start getting into new channels and streams, that will lead to "God and Guns".





My Homework Part 1

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

I was asked to define success.  I don't honestly know where to begin.  i used to think it was money…  I thought it was career…  I thought it was a lot of things.  I am laying in my bed, in my underpants, on my laptop… Just trying to put it together…  At what point will I be successful?  That is a total moving target.  So lets start with what I DO know.

  1. I know that if I want to feel successful, I will no longer be trapped by a job.
  2. I will no longer be trapped by a clock.
  3. I do not want to have my life restricted by pain.
  4. I want to not have any hinderance to worship of God
  5. I want to leave behind a thriving legacy
  6. I don't want to be afraid to take risks
  7. I want at least 200 Acres of my own so I can do long distance shooting and hunting.
  8. I want my wife to be able to relax.
  9. I don't want to be the tool that makes some else rich.  I want my efforts to go directly into the Wagner family coffers. 
  10. I want to be a an insane giver.

I asked my wife "What does it mean to be successful?"  Her response: "To not have to worry."  I then asked he this: "Being married to me for almost 20 years, how do you think I define success?"  Her reply: "To be respected.  You have always needed external validation."

I can't deny that what she says isn't valid… but I feel it's only part of it.

Ok, perhaps the actuall post is probably not going to be as enthusiastic as I had hoped. My friend.. uhh… She needs a name “PhotoBaby” has tasked me to write down my goals. In Men’s group “Sarge” said we needed to get things down on paper and put the blood of Jesus on it to reveal where it was supposed to go. Truth be told. I don’t have a plan, a map, or even a direction. I have list of things I want to do… so I guess those are my goals.

I am going to try to use my amazing Professor Google skills to search for how to do lists in HTML.

Here goes…

My List of things I want to do:

Wait…. I have 2 lists. The first list, the most important list is what I feel that I am called to do. The second list is what I want to do. The second list takes a back seat to the first. Oh no… now there’s a 3rd list… It has to intermingle with the first list… OK… well, we’ll see if I can pull this off.

This is the list of what I feel that I am called to do (mixed with the things I have to do. There is no order of importance.

  1. Be in closer communion with God
  2. Leadership
  3. Music
  4. Fix my finances
    • Mortgage
    • Student Loans
    • Car Loans
    • Bills
  5. Ministry
  6. Mission Work
  7. Increasing the gifting I can give to the church and others
  8. Spend more time with the family

These are the things I want for myself and my family:

  1. Go back to school
  2. Pay for the kids schooling
  3. Truck
  4. Gaming
  5. Weight Loss
  6. Win Lottery
  7. Fixed or new X-Box

There. Those are my lists.
