At the tippity-tail end of January this year, I signed up for a thing called “The Creative’s Workshop.” I didn’t know much about it. It was an Akimbo workshop run by Seth Godin, and it had the word creative in the title. That was all I needed to know (I thought).
I soon learned the workshop asked its participants to “ship” a new creation each day for 100 days. During the course of the workshop I began and began again, and began again, again. I started with a focus on songwriting, then talking about music theory, then songwriting again, then I started blogging. It was one of the better experiences of my life.
A few days ago, I signed up for a different Akimbo workshop; The Marketing Seminar. I’m once again at the beginning; beginning again, again. At this point, beginning again feels both exciting and a little familiar.
It seems once a person has begins again, again enough times, they start to get a feel for the territory, and that’s exciting.
