it has been so rewarding to transition from daily, obligatory desk life to this new life. I am more creative, more efficient, more passionate when working when I choose, where I want, and on only those projects that are core to my mission. sometimes I find myself on a roll on a Sunday, unable to rip myself away from some inspired project for ten hours at a time. other days I allow myself to release into lassitude. most days (like today) find me in the sweet middle ground: optimally plugging away on my rock projects, my business growth, and with ample time for family and friends.
my life is not turning out as I expected when I transitioned away from the Gates Foundation five months ago. strikingly as I look back I see I've gone in a straight line toward my purpose. and I am learning to just concern myself with doing my small part.
