Below is a copy of the first email “experiment”… I found my self wanting a central place to comment… so I did a blogpost for comments.
I find myself wanting to connect more and more with people like me. People on a journey, learning, being inspired and trying to “capture” moments.
This is an experiment.
I’m still inspired by a book I read so many years ago from Tim Ferris called “The 4-Hour Workweek“. In fact, I’ve read it about 9 times.
Tim is doing something called the “5 Bullet Fridays“. It’s just a quick way of reaching out to his peeps (like me) and saying, “this is what’s going on right now”.
So, at the risk of exposing too much, I want to try an experiment. I want to reach out and tell you what I’m doing from time to time… not trying to do anything except say, “This is what I’m doing right now” in hopes that it will help you in someway to see parts (not just the ones I can brag about) of a sometimes mundane and messy journey.
What I’m reading right now
I’m reading “I don’t have enough faith to be an Atheist” because my buddy Dan told me it was great. Anytime someone recommends a book they think I’ll like, I usually buy it and read it… and usually, I do like it! Thanks Dan.
What I’ve been working on THIS WEEK (in the studio)
Finishing up mixing several records from The Livingstons, a group from Texas called Maranantha 6.
What I’ve been working on (on MixCoach)
I’m reading some podcast notes because I’m doing a podcast today as a guest with Lij over at recordingstudiorockstars (and I’m more than honored and excited). Don’t know when it’s going to air yet. Also, working on building a “flagship” mixing product (as my friend Graham Cochrane calls it) to help mixers in a way that I haven’t been able to yet. Graham is a remarkable human and I’m glad I know him… I’m sure you do too.
A quote that has me thinking
You can have everything in life you want when you help enough other people get what they want – Zig Ziglar
Anyway, theres’ that! Not perfect. Not complete. But, sincere.
Talk to you soon,
