“There’s no law that says a blog post needs more than one idea or more than one sentence.”
For me—and I suspect many others—this is actually a much broader issue. I spend a lot of time holding myself back from doing many things (e.g., starting a newsletter) because I’m so obsessed with starting them in whatever shape I want them to be in years down the line.
Which is silly, because it turns me into a planner—not a doer. And I even like to quote Voltaire:
“Dans ses écrits, un sage Italien
Dit que le mieux est l’ennemi du bien.”
(In his writings, a wise Italian
says that the best is the enemy of the good)
Anyway, this is a mildly grandiose announcement that I’m going to try and send out some actual newsletters. Yes, I know I tried that before. Cut me some slack—it’s been a year. And go here to subscribe.
