So sorry for the radio silence!
There's actually some family member drama that's eating away at my spare time (what little I have). You know how that is, right? :)
I do want to pass this blog post from Seth Godin on, though (love him!). It's all about failure.
The key takeaway:
"Stop engaging with the false theory that the best way to stop feeling like a failure is to succeed. Thinking of one's self as a failure is not the same as failing. And
thus, succeeding (on this particular task) is not the antidote."
