Solving your problems, even little ones. Just replaced the screens in our sun porch with pet proof screens so that our kitten stops tearing out of it.
I sent the emails yesterday. Today, I feel a bit discouraged, as though this is just more or less impossible, and that I will have to do a ton more work to gain credibility. I haven’t even waited for Monday to come so I can actually say everyone ignored my emails. I sent them on Friday afternoon, after all.
This is just silly. The right path is likely to just do as much as I can to create a credible presence. Writing about what works, what doesn’t work, and establishing myself as an expert on the subjects.
There is a lot that you can do before you start doing data-driven experimentation. And I can probably find a job with someone with whom my opinions resonate before I am able to get proof that what I propose actually works better.
Discouragement -> inaction -> guaranteed failure.
Recommit -> take action -> possibility.
