It’s been a while since I have written here. And from time to time I reflect a little on why. It’s because of Amy Poehler. More specifically it is because her quote-filled delightful book Yes Please. This is one of the quotes that really hit me.
“The talking about the thing isn’t the thing. The doing of the thing is the thing.” Amy Poehler
Amy was I believe referring to reviewers of her work. It kinda hit me in another way.
For the vast majority of the life of FoG I have been talking about doing the thing. The thing being entrepreneurship, marketing, SaaS, sales, startups, angel investing, venture capital, and the like.
A while back instead of talking and writing about the thing I started doing the thing. I like the doing. I like the doing more than writing about the doing. And the challenge of actually growing a business is a lot more interesting to me than telling other people how to go about it.
Not sure if that is a fitting epitaph for FoG or even if it is dead. For now, I am doing the thing and having a lot of fun. Writing about the thing is just not something that I find that interesting right now.
