First Things First

First Things First



My name is Jacob Branum. When I came up with the name “Get Engaged Today” I wanted something that would get your attention. The titles meaning is pretty basic. It means get engaged in your life. Stop just living and scraping by. Do new and exciting things, do things that make you scared and excited. Over the course of this blog, I will share some wisdom I’ve learned over my very brief 18 years, and what I’m still learning. If you are looking for a happy, rainbows, and sunshine blog; you should stop reading here.


I don’t want to write a blog about how you will succeed in life and how everything is going to turn out alright. Because, in all honesty, it may not. Especially, if you are just a bystander in your own life. No, I want to write a blog about life. How to get engaged in your own life, why you are not reaching your goals, and how to change the circumstances you find yourself in. Now I know what some of you may be thinking, “You are just a kid, I’m a grown adult with years of experience on you.” etc. etc. Congratulations, you’re right. Most of you reading this probably do have experience on me.


Despite this, I hope you continue reading. Perhaps I can diversify your field of view, or maybe, just maybe show you a couple of things. I will be posting two times every week.


Thank you for reading this first post,
