Marching Orders From Oblivion

  1. Promise less: I’m green. I barely have an audience. Nobody cares what I think I want to do. What matters is the work I complete. So, while I am determined to follow up on past promises, I can shut up about what I want to do next.
  2. Synchronicities come to those who reiterate: The more I bang my head against a topic, the more new ideas spill out. This generally occurs through online conversation, research, or just screaming about it into the void until someone hears what I’m saying. I’ve found an uncanny number of new connections and discussions have popped up as a result of just hitting my niche every day. It’s awe-inspiring.
  3. Slow and steady fills the space: Last year, I felt very overwhelmed about just how much work I needed to learn how to do to get my work where I wanted it to be. This month, I’ve learned that nothing matters if I’m not doing something to push the work forward every day. The distance from the end goal is irrelevant. What matters is the distance to my next step.
