What Is
Life In Fast Forward?
Welcome to the online home of me, some guy given the name John Cleveland Payne. In the grand scheme of life, I am just another guy with another blog. But to myself, and hopefully to all of you who actually read this, I am something a little more special. From a young age, I fell in love of the idea of ‘the message’ and medium in which you try to transmit.

Basically, everyone has a message to give to the world. Some are basic, some complex, some have the power to up lift and some are just out there to bring as many people down as possible. But everyone has a message, and most people have problems identifying their message. And the ones who get that far can seem to figure out how to get the world to listen.

Well, I have a message, and this is where I will get a chance to share it. Hopefully, you’ll get plenty of things to keep you motivated or inspired, provide knowledge and comfort, and just have a little fun. Apologies for the state of flux and state of seemingly confusing messages that you’ll get here for a while, as I am doing a lot of personal soul searching, and scrubbing of old ideas to take the best of the past to build a new beginning.

In 2007, I changed the name of blog from “The Mis-Adventures Of The Jazzy Cool One” to “Life In Fast Forward.” I began to tear down old blogs and newsletters and try to find places for them here. My goal is to take the focus off of me the person, and show the world the life I live and share with every human on the planet. I aspire to life at a very high standard, and instead of dealing with people who rather slow us down, I want to find ways to help people pick up there own pace. As you get to see an insight to the further adventures I hope to lead, hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride, and want to come along.

Introducing...The Anti-Bio
Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Inspired by Drea Knufken at BusinessPundit.com (and crossposted at Cool Corporate dot COM).

For those of you having trouble putting down your accomplishments in a CV, resume, or traditional biography, try a new exercise: The Anit-Bio.

This is my attempt here:

J Cleveland Payne hates his bio. While he is extremely proud of all his accomplishments, he hates having to take the time to write them down.

Payne has always been more comfortable being a little bit socially awkward, and spent the bulk of his life trying to prove to others that he was a slacker, and his master plan to accomplish this was by working hard at every day at making sure the job was always done to the best level possible (not one of his more well thought out plans, but he’s had worse). From this, Payne acquired a work ethic that is second to no one, and the ability to outperform in just about any task put in front of him. Payne has never let minor details like lack of talent, resources, or authority get in the way of getting the job done.

Payne has come up with a title to describe his work self: Reluctant Jack Of All Trades Looking To Become A Master In Something. Current goals are to survive the week without killing someone. Future goals include becoming a college business professor (small school, junior college, or vo-tech), a consultant for businesses and personal development, a certified fitness instructor, a certified life, life coach, and a radio talk host (a regular radio talk show host with a regular gig...and getting paid for it).

Payne created “10 Rules For Life” as a basis of his personal beliefs and motivation, but his simply life goal is to live a life by the Yiddish word chutzpa, to live without apologies.

Payne works best when he is in the capacity of being a catalyst, able to make things around him work better without changing, or at least overly taxing, himself. He also works fairly well as a filter or gatekeeper, keeping unwanteds of various kinds out and only allowing the wanted or not-necessarily-wanted-but-necessary in.

Payne believes you can't judge anything, especially life, on a scale of 1 to 10 unless you begin with something that is worth a one and something that's worth a 10, and a lot of things in between.

Payne likes to think of himself as being in the people business. His products are tools and systems used to help people get their business off the ground and keep them in gear.
