Back in August of 2019, I was humbled to be featured by Voyage Phoenix Magazine. Just wanted to share it and give a special thank you to the team for recognizing my content on Instagram and reaching out.
If you take a moment to think about it, you may come to realize how much of our lives play out nowhere else - but in our minds. How can we not expect that at some point or another, we may forget what we have shared with the outside world and what we have yet to articulate. It's not surprising that we find ourselves in an ever increasing state of mental fog, anxiety and insecurity.
As human beings, we have a deep rooted desire to be right. To have the answer. And not only have the answer, have the answer quickly. While there is some utility in being efficient, I feel we often times misappropriate too much value and correlation between speed and effectiveness.
It matters not when you began but if you finished on time. And as soon as you understand this principle, you begin to work backwards.
The most visible objects in our lives often seem to be our failures - our shortcomings. In many ways we cannot help it - we are wired to see them. But we mustn't pass judgement in haste.
