I don’t want to get into a huge habit with these self introspection pieces, I want to focus on the User Experience, Psychology, and Design Problems we face in our day to day lives.
This is more of an excuse for going a month without finishing a posting. This is a lie; I finished a couple but didn’t post them. And it isn’t really an excuse, I’ll own the fact that a month went by.
So, the previous rambling was about Language and Drugs(!). It took me a long time to complete; as I worked through it I noticed that a certain due-diligence was required. If I am to discuss the research that someone else has conducted, it is only fair that I do my best to hear from them. (Journalism?)
This was a new development for me, I realize this is a concern that news organizations deal with but here I thought I was just a lil’ blogger. So I did more research, and reached out to someone. And heard nothing. So I found another person who responded and then nothing.
But all this takes me time. And a finished piece remains unpublished. Which made me sad. I could feel the landscape changing as I waited to hear back from people, as the time between postings increased. And as I felt this, in my heart, I made some adjustments to my process. Refinements and schedules and finished more work so that if something doesn’t launch I can still fire off the next one in the queue.
I think I’ve said this before but challenges define us. They make us who we are and they help us grow. This setback pushed me to build a better system for this endeavor. If the delay never happened, I wouldn’t have grown here.
So thanks people for blowing me off, you are amazing. 😉
