Where to Find Me Today: September 29, 2022

And I’m back with another episode of “where you can find me today.”

As with yesterday, there’s plenty of fresh ink I’m proud to share. You’ll find links to all the posts below.

And if you were in Burnaby today, you may have caught me at Cineplex VIP Cinemas Brentwood hanging out with my friends. This was a rather rare outing, but it ended up being a ton of fun.

Tomorrow isn’t necessarily shaping up to be a big day, but it’s already after midnight, I’ve got an early meeting, and I will probably engage in a ton of marketing activity. So, I’m off to bed for now, but I look forward to connecting with you again on the final day of September.

Where to Find Me Today: September 28, 2022

Hey friends!

Well, I know it’s been a while. It’s really been a whirlwind as of late, something you will know well if you’ve been following my journey on Steemit.

Some of you might be wondering why I’ve been posting to Steemit and not here or on Medium, and it was an intuitive decision first and foremost. But I’ve also been itching to experiment more aggressively with Steemit. Guaranteed I will be sharing the results of this experiment in a future blog post. 😉

I’ve already got a ton of projects on the go (as I always do – let’s face it), but I must admit it didn’t feel right to me that I wasn’t posting updates here on DavidAndrewWiebe.com. So, here I am to share a little bit about what I’m up to and to point you in the direction of “where to find me” today.

On any given day, I’m producing and publishing insane amounts of content, but you must know where to look to find it. I figured, instead of making you work for it, though, I would curate and compile all the posts and share them with you here.

Here’s what I have to share with you today. Enjoy!

David Andrew Wiebe, May 2021Breakthroughs are followed by breakdowns. And breakdowns are followed by breakthroughs.

I have observed this pattern on far too many occasions to call it coincidence.

You can prepare for the breakdowns but only to a certain extent. There’s a good chance it will be unexpected, out of left field, and all-consuming, even if only momentarily. Which makes it harder to observe the pattern and easier to get caught up in the emotion of it.

But observing the pattern is all you need to do to see it for what it is. The battle is half won once you’ve trained yourself to observe. More importantly, the pattern is not an impasse but rather a test.

Life is full of tests, which result in lessons. Lessons not learned always return later at inopportune moments to haunt us in the form of tests.

To advance in life, in creativity, and in business, we need to learn our lessons. There is no other way.

So, will you develop the mental toughness to invite and welcome tests in your life? That’s how you know you’re on the path to rapid growth.

David Andrew Wiebe, May 2021Not all to-do items should be treated with the same level of urgency or respect.

All too often, as creatives and creators, we end up focusing more on appearing busy than stopping to think about what would make the biggest difference in our careers or lives. Because determining high impact actions requires more work than we’re often prepared to do, and besides, it forces us to remain in suspended inaction until we can identify those elusive difference making plans. So, we cling to busyness. Enlightenment can wait.

If we fail to identify the cost of busyness, though, we’ll never realize the benefits of homing in on singular – or at the very least a small handful of – actions that make lesser tasks irrelevant.

Last night, one of my friends called me up and shared that she had been meditating, which gave her the inspiration to act. Only, as she looked at her to-do list with new eyes, she began to realize there was nothing on her list that was going to create major forward momentum in her business let alone breakthrough.

And so often, this is exactly how our to-do lists look – just that we don’t notice.

The cost of busyness isn’t just time wasted on lesser tasks when you could have allocated the same time to more critical ones. It’s loss of opportunity and revenue, increased frustration (because of lackluster results), and most importantly, rising stress levels and a creepy crawl towards burnout boulevard.

But knowingness doesn’t result in action. For example, just because you know how to get in shape (as we all do), doesn’t mean you’re committed to those actions.

And so, we must sit with this issue of high impact actions, because knowledge alone doesn’t result in transformation.

Although this is a much longer conversation, I would argue that a good place to look is in your communication. How are you communicating, and who are you communicating with?

If the answer is “I don’t know” and “not many people,” then is it any wonder new doors aren’t opening in your life?

We need to be more intentional. And our answers to these questions need to be more exact. Because therein lies the secret to our overall effectiveness.

David Andrew Wiebe, April 2021Clarity can come from unexpected places.

Whether you feel stuck or unsure of your next steps, it’s important to realize that the breakthrough you need likely isn’t going to come from well-worn creative wells.

The enemies of clarity are pervasive besides.

The first is what falls under the category of addictions. Shopping, drama, video games, movies, alcohol, food, or otherwise – we all have our vices.

Addictions are an escape, and they tend to cloud our intuition, mask our true feelings, and prevent clear thinking. Because of the instant dopamine rush they provide they can lull us into a false sense of accomplishment and success, even as fires are breaking out all around us.

The second is our routine. Sustaining a routine takes discipline, and while discipline is a virtue, if you have not time enough for spontaneity, a deviation from the norm, as well as prolonged thinking, reflecting, and journaling sessions, you are unlikely to recognize what might already be in front of your nose.

Finally, there’s busyness. Temporary busyness is fine. It can even be purposeful.

When I was a graphic and web designer, we used to have “blitz” days, where we’d commit to putting the finishing touches on projects that had been sitting for a while. A blitz day could last well into the night, but of course, we’d reward ourselves with a pizza or a night at the movies for our effort.

But when busyness becomes our default, we should not be surprised to find the waters grow murky. Long-term caffeine-fueled hustles almost always end the same way, with the hustler wishing they had been more sensible in their approach. Because after exhaustion comes burnout, and burnout can be a costly, ornery, long-term companion.

No one makes good decisions at 3 AM after days, weeks, months, or even years of overwork and fatigue. There’s no clarity to be found there.

In my recent live streaming efforts, I have found more clarity than ever expected. The newness of it is exciting, but oddly, it has almost become like a visit to the shrink. A chance to express myself and to be heard without judgment (though there is no audience more judgmental than the one hiding behind digital anonymity).

There’s much one could say about that, but the point is that I see my past with greater clarity. Which helps me see the present with increased clarity as well.

Leave some space in your life for something out of the ordinary. It could be an opportunity to capture the seemingly elusive omnipresence of your calling.

With that, here’s what I created for you this week:

You were born to make music. It’s a calling.

But some days you feel like giving it all up.

You see people who are more talented and more prolific. And they have a larger social media following than you.

Why try? The odds seem stacked against you.

You don’t need to quit. You don’t need to give up. You don’t even need to change your approach.

What you need is a mindset makeover.

Read The Renegade Musician and reclaim your uniqueness, creativity, and calling.
