I gotta be frank; when I go to my website and see the months on the left side and then see the dearth of content that has happened in the past eight months, it is a reminder of my laziness that sears into me deep like the mark of a branding iron. I have been in a state of autopilot, going about my daily routines of working then sleeping rinse-and-repeat and then realize that this process has been going on for half a year now.
Burning through time consuming content (which is mostly empty-calorie youtube -binge-watching) which is in essence basically the borderline-chronic netflix marathon addiction that the troglodytes I wrote so negatively about do.
Not only that, but I have really slackened in my daily reading habits, and the piles of library books stacked several feet high that I have so eagerly waited to consume is looking a lot like a dusty bucket list. But reading is not enough, but one reason for this website and my new youtube channel is to distill this information along with reinforcing what I have read.
I have so many drafts and ideas saved yet I have not given it the necessary nutrients to reach fruition. Starched in doubt, and the idea that things should be put-off until some serendipitous moment of perfection, relying on the whimsies of fate.
Going half-way goes nowhere but backwards. I need to have skin in the game.
When your in a state of apathy, your never apathetic about the things that can shake you out of that state, but are opposed to it. So I go back to one of the places that got me started to begin with.
When you start creating content you want to create it and release it fast.
This is your first year publishing strategy: write – publish – repeat.
After you have a real audience your publishing plan is: write – edit – refine – publish – promote – repeat.
I have focused so much on the supposed quality of my work to the point of neurosis and apathy much to the detriment of quantity and exposure. I have to get my machine lubricated first before focusing on the quality of the parts and engine. I have all these ideas that I can unleash in volleys, but instead I attempt to hit the bullseye everytime and end up never pulling the trigger.
Fluidity and seamlessness. All aspects of life are converved together in a holistic whole without divorced compartmentalizations. I am always myself with my friends, at my work, with my life, so I just gotta have it flow into my mission, my goal.
