The nature of my situation dictates that I am always at a point where I must make an important decision. No week goes by without having encountered such a situation. I assume this has more than a lot to do with becoming older, thinking harder and more and pondering bigger things. Maybe that is why: my decisions carry more weight as I follow the line of ageing1 and growing. Everything I do is of a constantly growing significance. This is why I am embracing new approaches, picking up things I left behind for whatever reason and, most importantly, I am changing some of my ways of thinking about myself and what I do.
I think I am pretty good at what I do, but I’m not good enough. I think I can improve, a lot. I think that I should make sure others know that I am and can. I think very good of myself, but am not satisfied: that is the gist of it, and I’m pretty sure the process towards an increasingly better me will be visible. I am starting here, right now, with conventions in writing. I’ve attached my first footnote ever, taking the syntax from John Gruber—it is, after all, pretty good. I am changing my attitude as well: this should be evident as it comes along.
I hope to be able to pull the Zooiblog along with my improvements and certainly hope you as a reader will find this as enjoyable as I do.
