How to be a .....

I'm putting a huge part of the writing world out of a job here but things are pretty simple.  If you want to be something, you generally have to do something.

If you want to be a triathlete. Do a triathlon.

If you want to be a runner. Run.

If you want to be a swimmer. Swim.

If you want to be an ironman. Buy an iron.  Just joking, do an iron man thingy.


If you want to be a gardener. Garden.

If you want to be a writer. Write.

If you want to be a teacher. Teach.

If you want to be a superhero. Buy a cape and give yourself a cool name.


It's that simple.

Unless you want to be Kim Kardashian. In which case my friend - photo shop.

If you're doing it, you can call yourself that thing.

And don't beat yourself up about whether or not you're doing it well or the best.  Just doing it is enough to qualify for the label.

The benchmark for success for pretty much everything is fairly subjective. Rules are generally made up and if enough people follow them, that's they way things are done.  But if you don't like them you can do something else.  That's just the way the world works.

Unless you're a scientist in which the rules exist and you've just got to work them the fuck out.

This has been a non-sponsored public service announcement as part of my #CTFD initiative.

You're welcome.
