The Joy of Biting Off More Than You Can Chew
I’ve done it again.
To the people who know me personally it will come as no surprise to hear that I’m in over my head, yet again.
It’s a familiar pattern – commit to something without knowing how to do it, then working like mad to be just good enough to get by, and then working even harder to get good at it, then harder still to become outstanding, and then keep learning.
Some people say it’s stupid – but it works for me.
This week I’m writing and recording the first six episodes of a podcast designed to share what I’ve learned about the business of tutoring in nearly twenty years of my guitar teaching business. I have 171 episode topics on my list, so this should be a long-term thing – if I cover one topic per weekly episode it will take me over three years to clear my basic list...
Why would I do that?
That’s what I’ll grow by doing the podcast: strong and powerful chewing muscles – the ability to handle a challenge. Comfort bores me, and I have to have a new bone to chew every so often.
However big your chewing muscles are, there’s room for more.
Find your challenge or obstacle and start with a nibble, then a small bite, then a chomp...
Sink your teeth into it; then chew like billy-oh!
I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling peckish.
