To Plant a Seed

I think it’s hard to write.

I think it’s hard to write because I don’t know what you care about.

I go on LinkedIN, and it’s business and innovation.

When I was on Facebook, it was also political nonsense and virtue signaling memes.

Instagram is just things that typically catch your eye.

Then when I write about things that interest me, I end up having to learn a lot about it so I don’t sound stupid. It was so hard to write about COVID because well, I’m not a journalist, I also tend to look really deep and then I come up with the theories, that people dismiss me and later it turns out that I was right, yet no one bats a eye.

Probably because I haven’t been right all the time, and sometimes when I do predict something, it’s not explained properly or it’s not completely true.

Which makes me wonder maybe I am not as good at predicting things as I once thought. Well, as a “scientist”, at least a scientific thinker, I almost always doubt myself.

It’s great to think your theories and predictions are right, when you are leading a team, people are going to question your decisions all the time. The last thing you want to do is second guess yourself, although just as bad is never questioning whether you’re right or not.

All of my endeavours seem to have stopped rather abruptly, after a few attempts with no success I figure, why am I wasting my time with this, it’s quite obvious that this isn’t my forte. It wasn’t until just a few weeks ago I asked myself “Why isn’t it your forte? You’ve barely gave any effort or put in a decent amount of time.”.

The saying that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” has been so overused, that it’s now a knee-jerk reflection thought when someone tells me something is taking forever.

Isn’t timing hard to predict, and how do we know that this is the right amount of time that we are spending on something? What if we aren’t questioning the methods, or even the results? We are just lettings things go on because “that’s the way it’s always been done”.

Then, where’s the poop Robin?
