Systems Thinking

The last few days have given me pause and reason to reflect on the systems I’ve built around my writing business.

There’s a constant tug of war between what wants to be done and what needs to be done, and frankly I’ve been dropping the ball on some of it lately.

(I’m trying to keep a little perspective, too. How much has changed in 4 years!)

Fortunately, that has led to some other realizations on ways I can change and grow, and it’s my conviction now that the business—not to mention my level of anxiety and ability to perform at my peak—will be better for it.

I’m grateful for all the people who have been there to talk it through with me. Who have listened to me patiently as I figure it all out. You know who you are.

Still so much to learn. Still so much to do. I’ll spend the evening reflective but grateful that I get to spend my days making up stories for fun and for fun companies.

Even knowing that I’ve got a long way to go to get where I really want to be.
