How to take an opportunity.
Adam, I love how you share with us these very practical and real examples. And this line is stuck in my mind now: "In 2020, I decided I would commit a decade to try to make it as an illustrator." I like how 1) is was a clear decision 2) it is a real commitment that we can see in this newsletter (it js inspiring :) 3) You specify a DECADE. I think many times we want change but when it doesn't come quickly or clearly we drift away. A decade acknowledges how long this could take, and also that it is worth the investment of your time. It gives you a place in year 4 to say, well, I'm just in year 4, let's keep going. I feel like this is a mind-shifting newsletter. Thank you!
As a dog trainer who uses training plans in my work, I super appreciate this approach! This process of becoming is a marathon, not a sprint. Thanks for sharing your decade-long approach!
At the end of my husbands 30’s, he claimed that “he had won the decade” - For a person who feels like life is a race against time, to slow down, I’ve decided to win this decade a give myself space to enjoy the development and time to achieve my goals in a mentally healthy way. Thanks Adam, great post as usual!
