Creating Good Things


It's easy to complain, easy to find problems and obsess over them, easy to find communications from the news media or elsewhere that will try to dramatize something in order to get your attention. In the face of problems, what do you do?

Go build the world you want. It's easy to find things you don't like and complain about them. It's healthy to stay informed, but more than half of the time your mind should be focused on what you want to create.

You create what you dream of. So make sure you're consistently dreaming of the things that you love and bring you joy. That's a big part of how you create them. If you focus on things you don't like, you're going to give energy to them. Don't become obsessed with other people's misguidedness, obsess over your own dreams.

I want to learn history, and I want other people to understand history too. So I'm building a website that will do that. It's been great fun and will only get more fun and provide more personal growth for myself and others in the years to come.
