I have been thinking about what I do. About what I create. It is all timeless. That is my passion. Timeless drives me, but it doesn’t drive the rest of the world. Most people, especially in the market analysis space, thrive (or survive) on timeliness.
Monday morning, tomorrow, will be filled as usual with talking heads telling you what will happen or why it is happening. They will explain it all with nice prose. We all know many of these people. Many have high IQs and are well known.
However, when someone runs on timeliness there is only so much usefulness in their views. Why? Well, you have to listen to them all the time. How do you learn to do it by yourself if you are forever attached to the next thing someone says? That view of mine puts me in the distinct minority. That view leaves me writing timeless books and directing a timeless film.
That view of mine makes me radioactive to some.
I thrive on that.
