Today I started listening to “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck”. I was wondering where this has been for the past 14K+ days I’ve been on this earth. I feel it’s something that a lot of people could have in their lives.
This is the thing. I’ve been contemplating a lot lately. I think I given way to many f*cks to all the wrong things. This needs to change. My task for the next few weeks? Find the right things to give f*cks about.
Well, now that that is out of my system, lets talk about something different. What is that you say? Public Speaking I answer. I am terrified of public speaking, as most people I know are. The few times I’ve done it I barely remember the events of the actual speech. The problem with this is… I kinda want to talk at conferences and give back to the development community. So, this will be my challenge this year. I plan on starting small. Either start my own meetup to talk at or find one that will let me talk. I’ll probably plan a “Tech Talk” for my company as well. Try to get some practice in. What’s the worst that can happen? … ….
Well, enough talk of me. I’ll leave you with a quote I just can’t get enough of.
“I’m not running away. But this is one corner of one country on one continent on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond, and there is so much, so much, to see. Because it goes so fast. I’m not running away from things, I am running to them. Before they flare and fade forever.”
