Robert De Niro’s intro to the best screenplay award last night was spot-on:
“The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine-addled, crippled by procrastination and consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing, and soul-crushing inadequacy. And that’s on a good day.”
All the more reason to read Leo Babuata's essay on what he's learned as a writer. Lesson No. 13 is the best of the bunch:
When you put something with good intention out in the world, you have no idea what kind of impact it might have on others. It might do nothing, but it could have a profound effect on someone’s life. That’s truly powerful. That’s truly a reason to get up and write.
The potential for life-changing writing is enormous in the B2B world, especially in trucking.
