It's the Final Countdown

I have two weeks left in Austin and ten days in Boston. When we first decided to go on the trip six months ago it seemed like it would take forever. Now every day seems to fly by before I can make any progress on my list of stuff-I-must-do-before-I-go.

Of course, the one thing I've had no problem doing is buying the gear necessary to leave. I'll post a complete list of every single thing I'm bringing with me... some of which will probably surprise people.

We still haven't found anywhere to live in Panama yet. I send e-mails to people on Craigslist in Panama, but nothing good has surfaced yet.

Judging The Quality Of Your Own Work

On No Status Quo

I'm terrible at judging the quality of my own work.

I've almost deleted some of my best blog posts, thinking that they weren't good enough. I was ashamed to publish them, and I only did it to push myself to write better next time.

Guess what? Some of these posts, like this one that Tynan reposted to his community, turned out to be very good.

I've also noticed the same with photos I share on Instagram. Here, the quality (or the popular appeal) of a photo can roughly be judged by the number of likes and comments that a photo gets.

Over the past year I've uploaded over a hundred photos to Instagram... and I'm still struggling to see which ones will be well received. I'm almost ashamed to say this since I also give advice on how to take better photos with the iPhone.
