I’ve been friendly with Srinivias Rao for a while. He’s almost always made time for me and been generous. I tried to get him to work with us at Simplifilm but timing made it somewhat of a poor fit. For the best. Recently his career took off. He got some national media exposure (that was random in source but it was just timing that made it random.)
He (and Altucher) are the reasons I go to Facebook.
Srini’s ’selection’ was a matter of time. It was a continuation and validation of the work he’s been doing and his character. And if he hadn’t had the exposure, he might have a few less bucks, but all of his plans would still be in place and his confidence and character wouldn’t have been that much different.
Not in the same way that the affirmation junkies do, but in a calm, measured way. A recent facebook post (that was public so I capped the start of it:
The difference between Srini and others is that he works for it. He writes daily (or close to it), he approaches things with craft and humility. He’s not trying to overstate anything or hustle you into a sales funnel. He’s putting his best work out and trusting that the world will accept it and that it’ll find its audience.
Check him out. You’ll be glad you did.
I’m currently doing the exercise that he suggested. I’ve broken Jan 1, 2015 into 5 categories: professional, personal & family, financial, & legacy.
I’ll probably not share the results, but I’ve been disconnected and drifting for a while. I needed that time to just have without a plan. Now that I’ve built a team it’s time to think of where we can go together. It’s certainly time to improve things.
It’s certainly time to achieve what I was put here to do.
