I'm going to have to do some drastic training if I'm going to become the best blogger in the world.
As I was walking down the street last night, I told myself:
"You see those guys right there? You see those people sitting at that table in that restaurant? And at that table inside that restaurant? And at that table in that other restaurant? You see that group of people who aren't speaking English? You see those two beggars on that street corner? You see those two people walking out of that tattoo parlor?
"That's your competition. You have to be better than every single one of those people. Are you up to that task?"
(Well I'm probably better than most of them already, right?)
"Do you know that for sure? Do you have any 'proof' of that, whether a priori or a posteriori?"
(Whoa, getting fancy, aren't you?)
"Do you have a more effective way to phrase your thoughts on that matter?"
(No. I guess not. I guess that's one of the best ways to express that thought.)
"Good. Consider these past 45 seconds part of your overall training."
