Yesterday’s post poured out of me–I was typing continually, with only minimal breaks to re-read and adjust direction. Then I spent an hour or more editing, which made the piece flow better, and better reflect what I felt. But I think I pulled a muscle…
Today I feel empty, drained, out of soap. I made myself get out in the studio (a few words on that in the studio blog), so I’ve “shipped” in the Seth Godin sense, but I don’t have a lot of gas in the tank. I’ve got several topics that I want to comment on soon, but I don’t have the energy today.
I ordered two copies of Seth Godin’s What to do when it’s your turn, and I’m about halfway through it. It’s easy and enjoyable reading, and there have been a few gems that have tempted me to jot down notes, so I’m glad I ordered it. I have no idea who’s going to get the second copy: if I was still managing my team in IT I probably would have singled out one of my employees for some guided introspection, but I’ve been out of that environment for almost a year. If I can find the right person I’m thinking of making it a challenge, ie I give them a copy, we go over it together, and then I pass on both copies to them and they find someone else to repeat the process with. Seth would probably endorse that approach.
What about you, are you interested in receiving a copy and working through it with me?
