You can’t pull the plant out of the seed. You can work hard to prepare the soil, provide water, sunlight, warmth, but in the end, the plant will come out when it is damn well ready.
After a long and tough year, it’s time to turn my focus to 2012 and the wonderful possibilities it brings. As I do so, I want to start by focusing on what’s really important.
Two weeks, seven coworking and hackerspaces visited. Tune in for my notes and photos as I explored how burgeoning independent communities work on the other side of the world.
Working for myself means no adult supervision, which means hours in bed reading Twitter instead of putting on clothes and getting to work. My boss can’t fire me, because I’m the boss. It’s time to find a better way.
I’ll be heading to Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong from August 2-14! I’m looking forward to meeting coworking communities and other world-changers, getting immersed in some amazing new cultures, and maybe singing some karaoke too.
