I’m Too Old

A week or so ago, I was bantering over text messaging with Chris Martin about some blog posts I made. Chris suggested that I add to my posts how I felt about the topics. I replied “I’m too old. I’m done creating and enjoy consuming”. Man did that open a podcast of worms.

I’ll be the first to admit it, over the past few years I have been heavily focused on delivering exceptional class experiences for my students at the college. My “creative” work had been put on hold. As many of you know, it’s my creative work that created such things as OpenNTF.org, The Taking Notes Podcast, Elguji Software and IdeaJam and even this blog.

Well, Chris fired back with this “Getting Work to Work” podcast which stuck a chord with me and truly inspired me. I’m happy to report that I’m back to “creating”, while not at the same capacity I once was able to, I’m back and I’m typing. Thanks Chris for your motivation, friendship and “push”. Please listen to this inspirational 8-minute podcast entitled “I’m Too Old”.
