I found this saved on my phone:
“It’s better to be passionate and focused on executing one project well, than to attempt to maintain three or four activities in parallel. People will notice if you are distracted and not putting in a strong effort.”
Right now, I’m chomping at the bit to get a podcast workflow figured out (to drive the freshest stories Gearbox Magazine has ever run), the Work Life Parallel Discovery Kit moved into design, and how to get these ideas to the people who need them the most.
That’s easily three things. Add my fascination with sailing—and Fezzik’s recent track record—and I’m sitting at a solid five. Not counting family matters, which always take precedence over all of the above.
People notice when we don’t suit up, show up, and deliver.
People notice when we don’t obviously believe in what we’re doing.
Fortunately, I really believe in all of the above.
I’m working as fast as I can.
I want to work faster.
