Do You Need Some Extra Ordinary?

Hello. My name is Adam and I am extraordinary.  Before you start to think that I am cocky or egotistical, let me explain.

When I contemplated starting a blog, I was hesitant.  I figured that the World Wide Web already had enough blogs and why would anyone read mine when there are millions of others to choose from.

Like many of you, I often struggle to find out what sets me apart in this world.  What am I qualified to write about?  I am not smart enough to be a contestant on Jeopardy and I am not tough enough to be a contestant on Fear Factor.  I might be awkward enough to be on Wipe Out.

To convince myself that I could start a blog that people would actually want to read, I decided to take inventory of who I am.  Looking for something that makes me stand out in a world of blogs, here’s what I found.

I am a 5’10”, 165 pound white Christian male who is right handed, balding and wears a size 10 shoe.

To see where I stand out, let’s take a look at some facts:

  • The average male height in the United States is 5’10”
  • The average male weight for someone 5’10” is 141-175 pounds
  • In the US, 77% of people identify themselves as Christian
  • 89% of all people are right handed
  • Nearly 35 million American men are losing their hair, which accounts for roughly ½ of all males
  • The average male shoe size is 10

After seeing at that, I realized that I am overflowing with ordinary.  I could give away some ordinary and still have plenty left over.  I have extra ordinary.

So I convinced myself that someone who is so extra ordinary should have a blog.  I have always liked to share, so I will be using this blog to share some of my extra ordinary with you.  Enjoy…
