Straight On To Boring
This will post while we’re on an airplane somewhere far over the North Sea. We’re on our way home from another three-week stint in SouthEast Asia.
As I reflect on our time here, I’m grateful to get to do this kind of work. It’s a privilege.
That said, I’m also ready for routine again.
It’s very difficult to get a routine when only in one place three to four days at a time. It’s challenging.
The new and novel is a privilege. It’s something beautiful. I love the fact that I have the opportunity to eat spicy noodles for breakfast in Cambodia and get a Thai foot massage in Yangon. We work with some of the most amazing people on the planet.
But after inspiration comes the work. A daily routine. It may be boring.
I need boring.
Increased boredom means increased productivity. It means taking everything that’s been inspiring and turning it into something useful. Something valuable. Something beautiful.
And I’m ready for that.
