And I realised how much I have come to believe in the theory.
I write less nowadays, some months lesser than others.
But the lesser I write, the better I am getting inside my head — I now quickly discover opportunities, build a plan, and start executing things. I am yet to get the results, but I am sure they’d be great too.
I changed my approach to life and worked in September 2021 to pursue clarity.
But why?? Sab sahi to chal raha hai! Everyone said.
Because I was sick of chasing my dreams (yes, that happens). And honestly, the industry doesn’t look appealing anymore. (I am tired of seeing vanity metrics and fluff all around the internet).
I didn’t sign up for all this when I first started. Instead, I just wanted to write. But we all know writing for self barely pays for anything without some groundwork.
An important note here: I worked towards building financial security before I took this step. I am not insane, exactly.
Anyway, I finally am at peace with what I am doing currently, and I can say I am clearer than ever in my life.
I am slowly building an ecosystem of tools, resources, and solutions I wish to work on for life. (Curious about my projects. Check here)
During this time of turmoil, I realised that I was suffering from the curse of knowledge.
Maybe, this is the reason I was rarely satisfied with anything I was doing. Because anything I did, I always looked at the problems & solutions from a mountain top. (Maybe, that’s why I have trouble staying interested in long conversations).
