Actually, my focus has gotten a little sharper in the last few weeks. Being a solo/freelance anything is a pretty daunting thought for most people, but many of my endeavors have been that way – a one-woman push behind getting x, y or z done (with the twisting of a few arms here and there, or if a smile and a “Please??” will work I’ll do that, too). Because *so much* of my work life is “solo”, I started to find that I missed intelligent conversation. I missed learning through listening, connecting and sharing.
“Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.” -David Starr Jordan
Earlier this evening, I sat at my computer reading about a topic that had recently been on my mind (ethics in multimedia and digital journalism), but because no one was around that cared as much about it as I did, I didn’t talk about it. But in the stillness that followed, a voice whispered “You can do it. Do it.” It was *my* voice that whispered.
Wisdom = Creating a deeper conversation about the things that need to be learned/talked about/shared.
Skill = Writing, video, photo, audio
Virtue = Starts now. and over and over and over again.
