I think I’m finally understanding that the steeper, deeper learning curve is just a way of life – my new permanent condition. Ryan Holiday’s quote is on my refrigerator and always on my mind: “Behind mountains there are more mountains. Elysium is a myth. One does not overcome an obstacle to enter the land of no obstacles. On the contrary, the more you accomplish, the more things will stand in your way. You’re always fighting uphill. Get used to it and train yourself accordingly.”
As poseycorp grows and thrives, there are new opportunities to learn and new obstacles every month. As I dive into editing the ‘not quite a memoir book’ in earnest there are swampy conundrums I’ve never faced before. So I am getting used to it, and training myself accordingly. Thank heavens for Transcendental Meditation and the Letterman pool at the Presidio YMCA!
