Last week was hard. This week was a bit easier. I’m so overwhelmed. I know my depression is worse than it has been in years. I also know this is the longest down period of my life. So it’s time to change my strategy.
For years, when I’ve been down, I try to go bigger. Think bigger, dream bigger. But that just feels too heavy in a city where wanting bigger is treated like a character flaw.
This time, I think I need to think smaller, temporarily. Write good blog posts. Go to the gym. Focus on smaller things that I can make progress on. And then, when I get back to level, think bigger again.
It’s not a retreat, it’s an advance to the rear. Think progress.
