The Creator's Curse

The work you just completed is never your best possible work.

I had a wonderful evening tonight - a reader of the site visiting Saigon reached out to me, and we spent five hours having coffee and discussing philosophy, writing, history, traveling, government, business... amazing guy. Great conversation. Really enjoyed it, the time flew.

Now, I tell you - this is a guy with amazing creative ability and insights. He's spent a lot of time thinking about and researching and learning interesting things. He has a lot to share with the world.

Yet, he hasn't released most of the writing he's done. He's a writer, and I'm guessing quite a solid writer - he reads a lot, writes a fair bit, and is a clear thinker, and that combination lends itself to solid writing. I'm almost certain he can at least write well enough that the writing doesn't get in the way of the good insights, and he definitely has good insights.

But, he said to me - he's looking to create timeless, masterpiece-level work, like the literature he really admires most.

Total Focus; Total Enjoyment by Tynan, as told to Sebastian Marshall

When I turned 30 and I had a minor freak out… I thought, "I'll be 40 in not long, and then 50… there's things I want to do in my life, and they're not happening at this pace."

Before that, I had a general idea of things I wanted to do and have in my life, but I went about in an unstructured way. It was good in a lot of ways. It made be a broad process, but not much depth.
