This morning’s Twitter feed is a split down the middle on a number of topics: consumption, poverty, obsession, accommodation (actual and metaphorical) all get a look in, and I’m beginning to feel my personal feed is evolving. Once upon a time, it used to be gaming, all the time. Now, there’s a better balance. This tells me the job of curation is working.

Carrot-v-stick

Gaming however is responsible for some fundamental life lessons, primarily those summed up in the carrot vs stick argument that is also known as effort vs reward.¬†Increasingly the carrot portion of life is irrelevant: what matters most is the journey, trip from A to B, learning of truths along the path to a destination that’s only ever a starting zone to the next way-point.

Satisfaction is now derived in different forms: learning, progression and enlightenment coming from interactions with reality. Yes, the World is in peril and as a result I need to be out in it, making people think about bigger issues, the things that matter… principles that have redefined my existence. No, I don’t expect you to agree with me. This isn’t about becoming an influencer or having a fanbase. I’m here to make you think.

That means I’ve outstayed my welcome here. It’s time to head into town and get working on my project.

Make a difference, keep moving.
