My time away from social media is teaching me to enjoy and appreciate life, have memorable experiences and take better care of myself and those around me.
I’ve also for the first time have genuinely been able to do serious research while working on my new book. What I’m learning is that doing rigorous study, rigorous research, it requires a different kind of commitment.
To understand ideas to the point of writing about them can require hours of rereading, cross-referencing, taking notes, and reading several books at once to find solutions and even create new ideas.
Paying my research dues is teaching me why it takes years to write great books.
Take your time, do your best
