Nearly 3 years on and 350 blog posts later, I though it was time reflect on the BIG lessons – those ah-ha moments and times when writing things down changed my worldview.
Blogging is about the most important thing I do in life. The craft of writing allows me to explore emergent ideas. The reading of other people’s blogs nourishes my own learning and challenges what I believe. When other’s pick up my ideas and build on them … that’s a gift. Something that my mate Chris Corrigan calls The Gift Economy.
“An idea isn’t anything until it’s been published and offered to the world” Can’t remember who said this?
So, as I reflect on 3 years of writing, here are the posts, stories and ideas that I seem to get drawn back to again and again …
