Is good enough.
The target is huge but you’re not ready until you’ve slowly put in the miles.
When intelligent people do stupid things, and even more surprised when the village idiot becomes the leader of the free world. What’s the common denominator? We’re all human, we’re all flawed and we all have greatness within us.
What we would give for one more day
By the time it is too late
We say, ‘oh! what we would give for one more day’.
We’d give arms and legs
To hold that person one more time
To speak love
To turn another page
Of our brief story.
To keep the ball rolling.
It’s easy, free, and makes you feel good.
And do the work. Even on your worst days, the bar should be low enough that the work gets done.
Cut the number of tasks and daily decisions dramatically. Be ruthless. Cut until you have less than a handful. Then re-focus your efforts.
Your definition of a hard day is someone else’s definition of a great day.
Less exceptional than you think, but also more beautiful than you think.
Do you default to social media when a call would be better? Could you meet someone instead of sending a text? Talking face-to-face helps you get to the heart of what matters. Social media is a fantastic tool, but it can abstract us away from our humanity.
Too much pizza hurts
The stomach but not the soul
Until next time, friend.
Observe the world.
Again and again and again.
Is the reward; it is not the outcome.
Even if you think you know what you’re doing.
However you can, whenever you can.
And a creative life is even shorter. Do the work as often as you can.
And lean into challenge.
The places you think you know best. There’s always something new to find.
