Gradually, then suddenly

“How did you go bankrupt?”

“Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.”

― Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

A new look for the blog, development of some new habits and most
importantly new observations.

I was thinking about the Hemingway quote above and how it relates to
areas unrelated to bankruptcy. In a positive way it agrees with what
Billy Crystal said which was essentially “It took me twenty years to
become an overnight success”.

Continuous practice, experiencing, learning, preparing, and then
suddenly opportunities and success appear. The benefits do not always
happen to everyone to the same degree, but I have read and heard
enough stories that make me believe that generally this is true.

So for me, its time to question everything I know, which doesn’t seem
like much, and to focus on pushing myself, doing the uncomfortable,
and continuously creating. I don’t completely know where this will all lead, but I know that where I am isn’t where I want to be.
