ISSUE NO. 239

I am tired.
In addition to this, I feel lousy because I've made little progress lately in writing my book on the antinet.
Here's why: As you may know, I am one of the co-founders of XYO. Last week, XYO was listed on the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the United States. For any cryptocurrency, this is rare. It was unexpected, at least for me!
Last week was rewarding. Financially rewarding, and emotionally rewarding. I shall write it about at length in the future.
But for now, I am tired.
At least, that's what a part of me feels.
Then I'm reminded of one thing. When I remind myself of this thing, it snaps me out of tiredness.
It is this: It's all in the mind.
You see, the truth is... I'm not tired. Not even close.
I'm going to write more instead of podcast for one reason: Writing resides within my Zone of Genius. (Not my Zone of Competency, or Incompetency. It does not even fall within my Zone of Excellence——in fact, a significant life mistake is living in your Zone of Excellence. Here are the results from a poll I created on Twitter. This confirmed my belief. Yet, this introduces another question...
Is my decision to write more frequently an example of confirmation bias? Who the hell knows. I sure as hell don't know.
I only know one thing:
WHEN IT COMES TO WRITING, I'M RUSTY AS TITS!
This piece of writing sucks.
And right now, I suck (as a writer).
But I'll get better.
And so will your reading experience here. Amazing what happens when you ship every single day!
To stay crispy my friend.

I am not involved operationally with XYO anymore because, well, in brief, I like starting things, not running them. ↩︎
