I was shoving resistor components into a laser printer at Vishay Intertechnology and listening to a podcast called Superhumans at Work. Tucker Max, the guest on this episode, sparked my interest by saying three things:
- Everyone should write a book during their life.
- Give yourself a goal to write at least 250 words a day. 250 words. The length of an email.
- You should always know WHY you’re doing something when you’re doing it.
An idea without action isn’t of much use, so I made a decision. I will write 250 Shiny words each day. I will post them. These 250 words a day are actually a book in the making…
Let’s have a look at point 3. Know WHY you’re doing something.
Here is one WHY for me to contemplate (and maybe you will find this useful too, dear Shiny Being):
Why am I writing this post?
Because it motivates me to keep creating.
Because by sharing this post, I can get out of my system some thoughts that came to me while I was shoving resistor components into a laser printer at Vishay Intertechnology in the little town of Prachatice.
Because by writing this, I can keep the flow of inspiration circulating to other Shiny Beings.
Knowing WHY I’m doing something can be very useful. It decreases the chance of getting lost.
If ever you’re bored and want to give your brain some nutrition, I recommend you listening to the original podcast with a best-selling author Tucker Max at Superhumans at Work.
