Transitions are Constant
Nov 24 2014
Change is constant. We are always transitioning from one thing to another and/or from one stage of life to another. I find that when those transition times happen for me, they tend to be good times to sort through and organize stuff I rarely make time to organize. My home office is just a little more organized as of yesterday. I’ve shoved things out of view into closets, file cabinets, and drawers which makes me feel better and helps create space to process the transition.
I’ve also been cleaning out my email inbox, and I found some articles I’ve been meaning to post about:
Thirty years of projects – Seth Godin. He writes about his numerous projects and career transitions. It was strangely comforting to see all the different things he’s attempted over the years and their different outcomes.
The Creativity Myth – Kevin Ashton. Mozart did not create his music by magic or overnight. Creativity takes time.
Cassandra and Pollyanna – Seth Godin. “Things don’t usually explode. They melt.”
Nobody Knows What the Hell They Are Doing – Oliver Burkeman. “The genuinely untalented, meanwhile, probably have no idea that they’re no good—because they’re too untalented to realize it.” And “If you’re worried you don’t measure up, that could well be a sign that you do.”
“If you’re interested in building a business to make money, forget it. You won’t. If you’re interested in building a business to make a contribution to society, then let’s talk.” – Arthur Rock
