Generally speaking, people often set out to try to set their plans, goals, and resolutions at the beginning of the year. I did though it’s not really something I typically do, and here we are at the beginning of March and I’ve really only done a portion of what I thought I was going to be doing.
I mean, I haven’t even touched Swift yet (and I don’t know if I will end up doing so).
Then again, Pressware has been growing and has resulted in the need for me to make some changes both to what I’m doing with some of my open source plugins and with what I’m planning to do with the business itself.
It’s both an exciting time, but it’s also a really weird time because it’s causing me to evaluate some changes that I’m making in a number of things that I’ve been working on for several years at this point.
When this happens, I can’t help but feel a little bit of tension – maybe even some fear – of letting certain things go. On top of that, I think that it can also breed a sense of relief as it may bring about a little bit of breathing room.
But does it really? I mean, when we wind down work on one thing, are we just making space to spin up something new?
For me personally, what I’m finding out – and it’s sort of a cliche – is that the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Though I may be winding down certain things, other things are starting up.
