Is it too early? It’s barely been a year and a half.
I am currently, shall we say, gathering data in Terra incognita.
Rather than rush to publish a few posts that aren’t quite ready, I thought I’d take the chance to highlight a few from the past seventeen months or so.
Writing a blog feels a lot like practicing a musical instrument with the door open.
You try to focus on the sound and the music, while imagining people wandering by muttering: “Isn’t he getting better at that yet?” Or “He’s still making that mistake?”
Blogging is a process of learning and thinking in public. After nearly a year and a half, I’m more proud of some posts than others.
Here are a few of the posts that hint at ideas I’ll be building on in the coming year:
- In June, I drew inspiration from the sky: The Benefits of Having Your Head in the Clouds
- In May, I wrote about traveling with all your senses
- Also in May: Peculiarity over Productivity
- That was part of a series I did in May about having too many ideas: Creative Surplus — Season 1
- Six months after the financial crisis became obvious, I thought about different ways we can and do experience wealth
- In February, I questioned the defense mechanisms we sometimes use to protect ourselves from the sophomore curse.
- And in January of this year, I used a pre-recorded music ‘scandal’ to defend faking it: Frozen Fingers, Fumbled Phrases
