On Tuesday night, I picked up the ShipIt Journal for the first time since Ruckusmakers.
It wasn’t easy; it had been haunting me from my office desk since the day I got back.
Each time I had tried to sit down with it, with one specific project in mind, I fell flat.
The motivation wasn’t there; the ideas weren’t there. Most importantly, the anxiety wasn’t there.
I think that’s the first point of the ShipIt Journal: to figure out if your project is worth it.
What I consider to be my “main project” has since shifted, and that made filling out the ShipIt Journal an incredibly different experience.
It was much easier and much more rewarding.
I was no longer guessing, I was owning truths.
The feeling of excitement and anxiety I felt when filling out the questions in the journal let me know I had chosen wisely; I’m working on the right thing.
It’s incredibly rewarding/exciting/inspiring to feel like you’re in the right place.
By showing me where my heart really lays, I feel like the ShipIt Journal helped me get there.
