I'd rather try and fail, then wait and wonder. There's this self-imposed pressure I've put on myself to focus on just a few things, and do them to the best of my abilities. It’s a bit debilitating. So for the next three months, I will experiment with anything and everything that interests me (within reason), without worrying about the bloody ROI.
To combat trivial wanderlust, I've created two requirements for myself:
1. There must be a point.
- There will be no mindless self-indulgent activites as I will try to see everything from a growth mindest. If I fail to see an activity positively affecting my life, then I won’t do it.
- Even if the point is simply to do something to just do something — sort of conveyed in the Hebrew word stam סתם — it will at least have to be a learning opportunity, however small.
2. Make note of the processes involved.
- Recognize patterns and see if they can be repeated, repurposed, and remixed.
