Hello faithful readers! It's hard to believe that I've been writing on SethOberst.com for three years. I thoroughly enjoy it and have been proud to see the readership steadily grow. As I reflect on the articles I've written I have realized, though, some errors I've made in the process which gets in the way of what I set out to do: teach you! So read on for more on how I'm altering my path, just a bit.
Imagine walking across a narrow, one-foot-wide plank on the floor of your living room. Knowing that any misstep will allow you to safely step onto the floor in the comfort of your own home, how stressed would you be to perform this task? Would you be physically tense or anxious if you raised the board half a foot? Probably not much, six inches is pretty manageable. You still have some options.
But what if you raised it fifteen feet?
