A couple days ago I read a book recommended by Tyler, whose blog is the only blog I read religiously.

Anyway, the book is about mastery, and it really rang true for me. In it the author talks about the different types of people who are NOT masters, and I am pretty clearly one of them. I'm "the hacker".

What that means is that I get some level of proficiency below mastery, get satisfied with it, and don't progress. I'm acutely aware of this - I get to the level where other people respect my skill, but never push myself as far as I could go / would like.

I'm writing for me, not you

On Alan's Journey

This time last year I was writing an article a day, and kept it up for 4 months before I let it fade away. But I was writing on one topic, and targeting a specific audience. I couldn't sustain it. This year, I'm doing it again. I seem to be writing an article a day - or more - and I'm writing on multiple topics, and I'm writing for me.

I'm not targeting a specific audience, I'm just writing what I feel like writing, when I feel like writing it.

Right now I'm in the toilet. Hey, some people read books, I just happen to be writing.

Don't worry, I'll wash my hands.

This feels a lot more comfortable for me. The writing, I mean.
