I Have Zero Idea What I’m Doing

| Tuesday 28th November, 2023

I regularly find myself having absolutely no idea what I’m doing. And I LOVE IT!

I spent so many years of my life completely sure that I was on the right path… study hard, get great grades, get a good job…

You know what? I’m grateful that it got me to the financially secure position I’m in today, but I paid for it with my soul, with my identity, with my Self.

This is probably standard mid-life stuff, but I just LOVE making the switch from hustle and progress and goals to ‘well, we’ll see’, to ‘ain’t got time for that shit any more’

And most of all ‘I know almost nothing about anything.

That is the true liberator.

Sure, I have a vast knowledge and experience of so many different fields. Sure, I can join dots like no-one else I know, transforming lessons learnt from one field into valuable insights in another…

But if I were, for instance, to stand in a library, I would know almost nothing of the content of, say, 99.9% of the books in there?

Isn’t that awesome?

I guess that’s why we work with others. Why we use other people’s expertise and skills and talents to help us achieve what we want to achieve.

The first step, though, is to finally admit to ourselves… “I know almost nothing about anything.
