Advice and event

3/10/2015

It’s been a little bit since the last time I made an entry onto
this blog. It’s been sort of eventful in that I finished reading a novella of mine, and it’s not super-great, but it’s good. I might have changed a few things if I were writing it for the first time, but I don’t know that I want to go back in and add more tension. I think I might just self-publish it on Amazon and hope people find it appealing.

I am soooo hungry.

Sometimes I wish people could just come up and give you the answers to your life–what will be the stuff you need to do to gain sufficient wealth, happiness and so on. Problem is, if others are like me, we’d just forget the advice; it wouldn’t stick because we haven’t gone through it. There’s a disconnect between knowing something intellectually and getting it viscerally. You can say B.B. King is a blues legend and agree with it in your head, but until you hear his stuff, you won’t understand WHY he’s a blues legend. And I think a lot of people try to give advice–good, actionable advice that we’d be wise to take–but we don’t act on it, only seeing in retrospect that taking said advice would have been best. And then, if we’re smart, we remember and use that advice next time that situation comes up.

I’m finally learning to start to take good advice. Remembering things people tell me and acting on them.

That’s an event in itself.
