This is version 0.1 of my About Page.
I am expecting it to change soon. But at the same time, I need to be as honest as possible about in describing what this blog is about at this very moment, on October 21, 2020.
In two words – the blog is about business and philosophy.
In more words – it’s a place I want to set up so I can write directly into a public record, instead of writing into my Notes app or onto my secret folder on Google Drive where I store ideas and ‘future blog posts.’
Why do I want to write straight onto the public internet? Am I seeking intention? No, far from it. And suddenly I’m reminded of a Tupac lyric: All I want is money, fuck the fame, I’m a simple man.
No, I’m writing straight in to the blog because of 2 reasons:
- Nobody is reading.
- Somebody could be reading.
Both of those reasons are really important.
The first reason allows me stop thinking and planning and waiting for perfect ideas; it gives me license to just post. Clarity comes during articulation, not before. Nobody is reading so I can be free to write.
The second reason forces accountability on me. It forces me to find a balance between self-indulgence and self-reflection, and notice lessons learned or re-learned. Somebody might be reading so I can be free to share.
So that’s it. That’s what this is all about.
