Change Is Like Something We Buy At Ikea
The Current, my new publication, is up and running.
Does it have any followers? No. Of course not. It’s brand spankin’ new.
Why am I so excited? Because I’m now one step closer.
The way I see it, everything in life is about being one step closer.
As much as we wish it were the case, change doesn’t arrive at our door step on a dolly in some enormous package ready for use on day one.
Based on what I’ve experienced, change comes like something we purchased at Ikea.
A box loaded with loose contents, sub-par instructions, the realization that it’ll take a frustrating amount of time to get done, and a series of redos after drilling in pieces the wrong way.
Starting a publication was a goal that I had at the start of the year. A minor goal that I hope leads to a larger one.
A piece in the box.
After years of trying to deconstruct and reverse engineer the best life possible, I’ve realized that, in the end, the life I’m after will be an accumulation of small changes (pieces) made over a period of time and connecting them along the way.
So here I am, like the rest of us, sitting Indian-style on my living room floor trying to figure out which piece goes where.
