7-Second Thoughts April 22, 2024

You are not finishing

You are learning what finished looks like.

Until then, you are working in consistent, intensive doses

And learning when to walk away


Not out of fear but out of fearlessness

Coming back

Walking away

Coming back

Walking away

Again and again

Until the work is finished

When it’s finished

But wait, there’s more:

The more you walk away

For longer and longer stretches

Eventually spending the bulk of your day working for your family, friends and total strangers

The faster your stuff

Becomes finished.
