The biggest problem with setting out on a journey begun with a grand purpose is knowing what to do when you don’t feel grand. When you’re not sure where to look for grand. When you don’t even feel good.
This is where I have been living since my last post. Lots of up and downs–mostly ups–but I haven’t been able to find a coherent thread between my ideas. Nor have I had the right combination of time and brainpower required to build a bridge between my roaming thoughts.
So I haven’t written at all. This isn’t what I want, but it’s also not something I could fix.
So, I’m going to pivot again.
I am going to record the mess, before I figure it out. This means I may someday actually figure it out. My overarching mission statement remains true. This will hard. The “it” is just now going to be “where do I go from here?” I completed my Navy career, and I need a new mission. I have a job, but it’s not my mission.
I’ve always liked Bill Gate’s quote, “Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” I don’t know where I’ll end up, but I can wait a while to evaluate where I’ve been.
You’re welcome to follow along.
