The Secret to Righting (Find the Write Editor)

The Secret to Righting (Find the Write Editor)

I kind of cringe just looking at this. It took three tries to write it. Or right it? Now I'm questioning all reality.

Good writing is good editing. I know that has to be a quote from someone, but Google hasn't helped me narrow it down much. So I hereby claim it in the name of all things Kevin, and proclaim it to be true and worthy. Get an editor.

"Can you believe it? We were all eggs yesterday."

"Can you believe it? We were all eggs yesterday."

There are days (maybe this is one of them) when you wonder if it's all worth the effort. You ask yourself if it's really worth putting in the time and energy to do what you're trying to do. Sometimes the answer you get back is "no." And you move on to something else.

More often, the answer is "yes." And that's when you have to stop and think about how far you've already come. At some point you had to start, and when you did you started with a lot less than you have today. 

Take stock of what you have. Look at your resources, your inspirations, your insights. List it out, and look it over from top to bottom. And do that again, when you start feeling that things are too heavy, and that you don't know how you'll go on. Remind yourself that you were an egg yesterday. Now get crackin'.

Pretend to Water the Fake Plants

Pretend to Water the Fake Plants

There's a success philosophy that goes, "Fake it 'til you make it" (Amy Cuddy does a great TED Talk about this, you should definitely watch it). 

This is about more than pretending you've got your game together. It's about feeding yourself the diet of someone who is succeeding in what you're trying to do.

Pants Branding

Pants Branding

I made one joke, more than five years ago, about "pants" being an inherently funny word, and now "being pantsless" is the most memorable part of my brand. Now that is funny.
