If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business, because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
– Ray Bradbury
When Chris Brogan said this, it really hit me, especially at this time of my life.
Business-wise, what I’m doing is questionable and against common sense. There’s people that’ll call me an idiot for what I’m doing, whether it’s to my face or behind my back.
Fortunately, there’s been some people who say they’re stoked with what I’m doing, as long as I’m happy doing it. With this newly-found energy, I haven’t felt as excited as I do I now. (Except for when we have a show.)
If you understand what I’m going through, at least you can see that you’re not alone.
One of these days, I’ll be able to write about what I’m going through more freely. Our company lawyer says I can’t blog about it yet. For now, that’s restricted to my private journal or one-on-one conversations (e.g. email, phone).
