Starting a new job tomorrow. All the panicky bells and whistles going, the familiar anxiety combo. But age & experience have their advantage in that it’s all not as overwhelming anymore. Instead the pressure’s rather distilling. Filing the essence out of my ingredients. My main USP I now know is persistence. I tend to not give up. I might not be as diplomatic or graceful as others, but I do make things work.
The thrust for that I get from this word-zoo in my head. Words are my shtick. In my mind thoughts are roaming the wild like a bunch of liberated serengetians. For me doing work and giving structure to a project is the side-noise needed to keep me sane… and let me ponder in the background.
