Kronedog Productions on the way!

Kronedog Productions

What is Kronedog Productions?

Kronedog Productions is something I came up with about a year ago but never went through with. When I orignally started this blog, it was a Warcraft blog but over time I strayed away from the gaming stuff into other areas I found interesting such as photography, writing about life topics and ways to better yourself. I then took another heavy influence and created The Ghost Den which lasted about a month unfortunately. Throughout the entire time of being away from the “gaming community” I felt lost in many ways venturing out into different themes and ideas.

I did a lot of brainstorming and collected my thoughts together to find the “constants” I love in life. It came out like this:

  1. Video Games
  2. Guitar / Music
  3. Writing
  4. The paranormal world
  5. Working out

Moving Forward

So with that being said, it’s time to go through with the original plan which was to share my love of video games with the world in a variety of ways. I’ve been playing games since I was very young and I’ve never really stopped playing them. This is what I’m going to be providing:

  • Gaming guides / tutorials
  • Up to date gaming news!
  • In-depth game reviews
  • Live streams ranging from Starcraft 2, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, MW3, and new releases!
  • Music Video gaming collaborations

 

So with a little patience, Kronedog Productions will be here soon. I’ll be posting a V-log soon on YouTube explaining in better detail of what I’m currently working on. My channel can be found at www.youtube.com/thekronedog

Thanks again to everyone that has continued to positively encourage me to do what I love to do most. This blog won’t be ending due to everything I’ve stated above but I’ll definitely be changing some things up.

Laws of Life: Leadership

Laws of Life

Leadership

 

The What

Leadership, leadership, leadership… It’s something we’re all aware of, we know what a leader is, but what makes a good leader, from an okay leader, from a bad leader, to a corrupt leader? Well, there is many factors that lead to a persons ability to lead others in a “correct” fashion. For some, it comes naturally, for others, not so much. So what if you weren’t born a leader? Does this mean you can’t lead? Of course not! Like anything in life, we have the power to learn and overcome obstacles. I learned this first hand years ago.

Personal Experience

Years ago I was on a 21 day wilderness trip in the Bob Marshal Wilderness in northwest Montana. Up until this point I’ve always thought myself a a natural born leader, I was right and wrong. Just because you may have that natural born talent doesn’t mean you’re going to excel with ease. Within the first 2 days of our trip, I was given the position for a day to lead our group which consisted of 5 other individuals, then everything when bang! The bang was “responsibility” which landed harshly on my shoulders. I was not only in charge of getting us to point A to B safely but also I had to be aware of the other individuals. I began leading but being self conscious, I sounded and probably looked like a very insecure leader… something a leader shouldn’t be.

As the day continued and as we kept backpacking through the beautiful Montana lands, my confidence grew. Before we retired at the end of the day, I was to be judged on how well I led the group that day. The same thing kept getting brought up. While I did my best to my ability, I was lacking in confidence in my decisions.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

As a leader, decisions are everything. People look at you to make the right choice to bring the group (or any collected amount of people trying to achieve the same thing.) It goes like this. You could make nothing but right choices then make one wrong move and suddenly everyone hates you. It happens so don’t let it get you down. We all make mistakes, everyday actually. It’s easier to jump on the wagon and call someone else out rather than our own selves. I know this is true for myself.

You are the Leader of your own Life

Lets look at it this way. You own your life. People may “tell” you what to do but in the end its your choice, whether right or wrong. Learning from past mistakes is one of life’s natural ways of teaching. Don’t be afraid to make decisions for yourself, but don’t do exactly what others say when you feel indifferent about whatever it may be. Trust your instincts, they can save your life.
