I haven’t been ready to announce it to the world, but it’s time. I’m a Newb. I’ve been a Newb for a long time actually, maybe all my life. What’s even more alarming is I’m finding myself thinking that I’ll probably always be a Newb. I have a somewhat ADHD personality, I’m always trying new things. Am I a pro at some things? Sure. But I’ll always be trying to learn something else. Therefore I will always be a Newb. Maybe I like to try new things too much. Maybe I should slow down and get really excellent at one thing. On the other hand, I’m a little bit of a perfectionist. I have a hard time turning over a project to someone else because I know they won’t do it as well as I can. So there, now that I’ve shared all of my personality disorders, I feel better. How about you? Are you a Newb? Are you always trying new things, learning new skills, falling down but getting back up and trying again? I hope so. And don’t be afraid to admit it. It’s the only way you learn.
I love this quote by Richard Branson. I think it frames this subject well.
“If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”
If you are that kind of person let me know. I’d love to meet you, maybe even work with you.
Never quit being a Newb.
