Ever since I was born I had an entrepreneurial knack. On Wall Street I had an anonymous blog where I wrote about music and culture, I had an anonymous Twitter account, I built a hardcore personal CRM using google sheets and nested if statements. I organized secret events where I brought people together from different disciplines.
When I started my newsletter this was a different era. This was way before substack and all that and now a newsletter is just like having a personal website.
I have a very atypical approach to entrepreneurship, where so many decisions are made for me to design a life that I want, the meaning, the flexibility, the family time. And so a lot of things I do are not prioritized by making money.
Two years into writing a newsletter I realized two things. One, I liked writing even though I never identified before as a writer. The other thing was I had a lot more to say than summarizing five articles.
I started with link blogging, then went into personal blogging, but along the way it was always driven by my newsletter because I do not have huge audiences outside of my email list.
A previous work acquaintance, a hedge fund manager actually approached me and asked if I could come in and coach his team. This was because he had been following me for 52 weeks and he formed an image of a. What I thought about b. My principles and c. Inferred a skill set I had.
It comes down these very primordial fears, these pebbles in your shoe.
I don’t call it meditation, but you should have a stillness practice. Bruce Lee calls it “mind like water.”
Are you able to, regardless of what is happening in the outside world, to downshift to stillness?
There can be a huge list of reasons why you shouldn’t be consistent, anything from unstructured creativity to giving your mind a break, to giving your readers a break. But it is so hard to let go of identities because identity is the currency of social animals.
