Spotted this on Matthew Lang’s site and turns out it orignated from some of my favorite bloggers: Leo Babauta, Frank Chimero, and Liz Danzico. Seems similar to Shawn Blanc’s Core Corriculum idea.
Anyway, the idea is to collect a “text playlist” of posts that serve as inspiration and motivation.
We are verbs, not nouns:
Oscar Wilde said that if you know what you want to be, then you inevitably become it – that is your punishment, but if you never know, then you can be anything. There is a truth to that. We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing – an actor, a writer – I am a person who does things – I write, I act – and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.
More to come…
