Thanks for visiting! Subscribing is free – ad free, personal-tracking free, everything-free, and it unlocks the weekend posts as well (they are usually my best stuff). Plus, I jump for joy every time I get a new subscriber... which means I've been jumping a lot lately. And, really, this is free: I have a career that gives me the time to do this out of love, and the only stuff people pay for is my book(s).

There are days where I can look around, realize that I've done what they told told me, and that was a terrible idea.

One of the hardest things about going on any new journey is that there aren't really any guideposts along the way. All you have is instincts, best guesses, and opinionated people all around you who may or may not know any better than you.

When I'm lost, I'm especially likely to take advice from anyone to help me get un-lost. And then, inevitably, I end up somewhere that I don't want to be.

Not all advice is bad: most of it is well-meaning. But most of it is for the benefit of the person giving it to you, even if it's handed out as if it's for your benefit.

This puts the onus on you to figure out what works and what doesn't, with the only real change is that you've got someone else's voice in your head in addition to your own.

Today... I won't do what they tell me.

you are a taco get in my belly
Sing it with me: I won't do what they tell me. I won't do what they tell me.

That's it for today.
