There’s been a few words that have stuck with me over the years.
One time, during an interview with Jason Hamacher of Frodus, Lost Origins with my pal Travis on his As The Story Grows podcast in 2016 (here), we got around to when I met Jason, years ago when I lived in NYC, at some vegetarian place.
“Yeah, you were with your girlfriend, or wife…”
“Well, ex-wife now,” I replied.
Jason replied, “later.”
His delivery was perfect, as only Hamacher could get away with.
Another word that’s stuck is, “why?”
I had just been rejected for another job that I thought for sure I was a good fit. My friend was with me, and asked me what I was going to do next.
“Send out more resumes, I guess,” I replied.
“Why? It doesn’t seem to be working.”
Pretty sure that was in 2016, too. Last two resumes I sent were in late 2017 (didn’t get those either), but I haven’t sent one since. He was right. I hunkered down on my own business (Close Mondays) in 2018 and haven’t looked back.
Later. Moving on, moving forward.
Why? An honest question. Stop doing what’s not working.
Later is now the name of my video / audio series. For more info, click here.
