So This Is What I’m Doing Next

I’m not 100% sure what it is at this point, but it’s on the way to whatever’s next.

Strapped for time and itching to write, I’ve been experimenting with flipping my own script. I’ve challenged myself to publish something everyday, related to work life parallel–and to keep it brief.

You’re reading one right now.

I’ve learned a lot about life, the universe, and everything, from my automotive, publishing, marketing, and education friends over the years. So many diverging circles of influence.

It would be cool if you wanted to talk shop with me about any of this stuff (maybe we’ll record it for a podcast or something, I dunno), so check it out, I guess.

Or don’t. I mean, I just realized this is the first thing I’ve ever shared publicly about this site, so maybe I should explain myself.

Have a nice day. 🙂

  1. Hi mate, I like the short formats, it focuses you on a singular point, and that’s never a bad thing.

    My friend Amy Vernon has started something similar, at least as far as content goes, and looks to publish a post every day. So far, she’s “slipped up” only once (maybe twice?), and it’s been fun watching how she approaches it.

    The trick, as you mention, is to encompass all you are and all you want to be, and then see what the glue is that sticks it all together.

    Then the fun can really begin. 🙂

    1. I hadn’t thought about these being focused on individual ideas, Danny. Thanks for mentioning it. If anything, I feel like these are all over the place.

      For example, I keep seeing commercials for the new Alfa Romeo Giulia on the TV at work. Oh, how badly I want one! But it feels a bit too far a stretch, ya know?

      Thanks for mentioning Amy, too. I’m gonna look her up. Very interested to see what she’s done along these lines.

      1. Thanks for the mention @dannybrown:disqus !

        Yep, I started on Jan. 1, vowing to write every day this year. One post got posted after midnight, and one day I skipped because reasons. But it’s been great for me.

        Some of my posts are pretty lame, but most get some stuff out of my brain.

        1. Nothing lame about it, @AmyVernon:disqus. At the end of the day, it’s all about a commitment–to yourself. We can use our minds to control our body chemistry and actions, or we can let our body chemistry and actions control our mind. I think you’re on the right path.

          Thanks for stopping by!
