Off the grid for a while

[ #25807 ]

I am officially assuming role of lurker in all the usual haunts until further notice.

It commonly accepted that the breadth of information in almost any field is too much for anyone to gain a level of mastery over. One must resign themselves to a narrow area if they are going to be any good at what they do.

I have found that I do not accomplish much of anything with any significance because I spend the majority of my time keeping up with what everyone else is up to.

This isn't a bad thing. I am able to help people find resources that meet their needs without being able to give them specific help myself. I am not under any illusions that I am missing out on doing something great by not focusing my efforts on a personal project.

It is time for me to see what it is I am capable of accomplishing. There are 2 projects that I have in mind. One of them is non-technical and would result in a personal achievement that no one but a handful of people would appreciate. The other is something technical that the community would benefit from but requires someone else agreeing that it is a profitable idea and willingness to fund it.

I will still be lurking, but TTFN

  • Good for you. :) I hope I have the necessary discipline to do this for myself soon, when it will be very helpful.

    You are what you think.
