Some leap into the unknown out of fear they won’t have enough time. Others play it safe because they’re sure they do. To me, even 60 more years wouldn’t be enough, but too often time isn’t up to us. So don’t wait for some big sign — being here is your sign — go live.
Wait! Don’t hit play. Read, then hit play.
One of the most fascinating things in life to do, I think, is to document. Document what? Everything.
My grandmother always reminds me to, “Keep a journal. You’ll want to look back at it when you’re in your 90’s like me. I wish I did that. I wish I kept one.” Social media and blogging have since become my journal. Granted, less-so over the past few years while I’ve built Carbon, but little by little I’m finding time to do the non work-related things I love: write, take photos, document. And if one day social media goes away and the internet goes black, well, then I’m screwed. Lesson for all: Backup your shit (and have multiple career paths).
