I remember sitting down and writing the very first one of these. Heck, I remember coming up with the random idea that once a week I’d come up with a random idea. When I think about it now, sitting down every week to write these is one of the things of which I’m most proud for this thing I’ve called Sendline.
The intent was to keep them simple. Short and random, worth sharing. I’ve joked with people that I really write them for myself. Little reminders and ideas to keep thinking about as I move through this thing called life. As I look back on them, I think I’ve done a pretty good job holding to that. Mostly.
Maybe surprisingly, it turns out they seem to make up a sort of portrait of myself. If you’ve read a bunch of them, you may feel like you know a little bit about me. Yeah, in retrospect as it should be. It seems easy now what in reality has always been tough for me: being known. In the context of leadership, it’s crucial to be known. Sharing one random idea at a time, I guess it’s not that hard.
That in and of itself is a good reminder for me.
ps… I listened to this song by Moby on repeat while writing this after midnight last night…
