out on a limb
either a curse, something that you labor under, or it’s a blessing, a chance to fly and do work you never thought possible.
I do my best work when I practice what I write about, and this time, I decided it was important to go as far out on a limb as I could. The Icarus Deception argues that we’re playing it too safe, hence my need to go outside my (and your) comfort zone.
It turns out that I don’t just write for you. I also write to remind myself of what I’m hoping to become as well. Hearing myself, months later, reading something I didn’t remember writing or reading, I shed a few tears. Yes, this is work worth doing. Yes, being out on a limb is exactly where I want to be.
audio excerpt from book

just added out on a limb.
oddity of interest perhaps – first time seth’s post ended up in my spam folder. couldn’t figure out why he didn’t post today.
