I want to document my journey, I want to create a story, a brand story. The only problem is that what I’m doing is not very interesting. The fact of the matter is, I’m not really doing any of my work at all. I’m not doing illustrating work at the moment because I’m putting a skylight in my daughters bedroom, and how does that relate? how does it? how can you incorporate that into documenting your journey? Well I’ve been listening to some podcasts and I’ve been thinking about that concept of Tim Ferriss’ where he talks about the four hour work week and he focuses on only doing what your great at, only doing what you love and giving the annoying jobs to somebody else. The thing is that if you’re doing what you love you’ll be better at it. If I gave this job to someone that was good at it, they might love it and we’d both get more done quickly. Even if we are working dollar for dollar – me working on what I like, them working on what they like, we’re both winning. It’s just a matter of finding that fine balance where I actually earn some money and can ask the question, am I better off earning some money so I can pay someone to do the stuff that I don’t want to do and outsource it? Do what you want, do what you love. So that’s an idea of how you can incorporate the story into a seemingly boring day doing menial tasks.
