This is really all about Doing The Work. And it is something I struggle to do with any sort of consistency. In this site, I do loads of work, constantly. But the work is of a varied nature and often separate from the work that actively reaches out to the rest of the world, at least directly. I work in cycles, bursts, and unplanned segments It's how my head works. It's also a big part of what makes the rest of life harder for me. Well, harder, in that, I have trouble doing the things that keep my life running smoothly, as well as the lives of those closest to me. I'm unpredictable, even to myself And yet...the work must get done. I guess what I'm telling you is, besides making sure that you do the work, don't punish yourself too harshly as you refine your methods for getting the work done. Too much harsh self-criticism and you may find that the work sops altogether. And that would be bad. Subscribe To OJ Podcast!
