Learn in Public

There is much to gain from working in public. By not waiting until everything is "perfect," you remove a barrier to publication which allows you to ship sooner and more often, thus circumventing that anxious and perfectionistic voice that often leaves us struggling to start (or finish) in the first place.

Of course, there's a big and obvious impediment to gaining these benefits: fear. Putting yourself out there is hard. Especially in such a personal medium as writing. Publishing something before you're 100% confident in it makes you feel incredibly vulnerable.

But if you can push through the fear holding you back, you can gain more confidence (and success) than you ever could have had by holding back until you're "ready."

And that's exactly what I'm aiming for with this site!

Take a look at my newsletter, Sensemaking with Savvy!

Over there I write weekly posts about the personal process I undertake to make sense of something that happened or occurred to me each week.
