How do I tame my fear of the unknown, the difficult, the tasks I need to do that I am ill-suited to do?
One day I’ll have an editor. Or maybe a brilliant assistant. Someone who is good at things I am lousy at.
I have major holes in my brain. It started with my brain development in the womb. I am on the autistic spectrum, an experiment of sorts. Then I had my two massive brain injuries… One in 1969 and one in 1998.
But this hidden agenda, to profit from every interaction, at your expense is not limited to the internet, it is just easier to see the dynamic there. It is harder to see it in person to person interactions, with every single person you interact with, or in books, articles, organizations, charity, politics, or people and their pets.
And it is hardest to see in yourself.
I am not condemning it: it seems that “desire to receive for the self alone” is having a new renaissance, and you either don’t notice it, or are in a conspiracy for “I won’t tell on you, if you won’t tell on me.”
I am a person who is well trained to help people create a context for their lives, for their relationships, for their businesses… a context, words, a speaking that sells the attractive part (bait) and hides the sinister. It is a misuse of my training and talent, but it is a possible use.
