You are mostly boring for yourself.
Emma's Notes #54
Do you ever have that feeling that you are just repeating yourself over and over again? I mean professionally.
For myself - I feel like the only thing I talk about is learning. In my head - 90% of my work thoughts are about saying the exact same things about self-directed learning over and over again. Same for how recognition of expertise works. But chances are you read this and think ‘hmm I wonder what Emma has to say about that.’
And that is exactly the point of this newsletter. Most people are just involved with themselves. Listening to their own thoughts. Of how many people do you actually read all their content? Or truly listen to everything they say?
Probably not that many.
And also - how do you expect people to get you if you thought about something 10.000 times. And then you say it once or twice and they should get it too? That’s not how ideas work. Just like it takes time and iteration to build no patterns. To be creative. It takes time and iterations to convey ideas as well.
So -don’t worry. Talk about it again, people have probably forgotten about the last time you did already.
Have a great week,
