Step 1: create. Step 2: discern.
It’s linear. It’s simple.
I work in the reverse order by default. Except it doesn’t really work. It’s nonlinear; it’s complicated.
What have I done in the past year? What did I do yesterday?
Sadly, I have run out of answers. Happily, I listened to Tim Ferriss’s interview with Seth Godin.
I guess even now—here in this very blog post!—my brain is trying to discern. It’s sneaky. These questions are bad: they are wrong, they are out of order.
My brain is good at analyzing, dissecting, discriminating. But I haven’t really run out of answers. The “evidence” only points to one thing.
The first step is to create. To do. I should ask myself what I did yesterday tomorrow.
