words of possibilities
expanding the vocabulary with ", yet"
One of my favorite authors is Seth Godin and I read his daily blog most days. There are few authors whose blessing’s I am jealous of and Seth happens to be one of them.
One of the most useful things that I learned from him are the two terms “Not yet” and “so far”. Take any arguments that anyone could or would make on any topic, any subject and you could add to the summary “, not yet” or “, so far” or even just a simple “, yet” to it. That would open up the same topic for a fresh conversation to a whole new world of possibilities.
If there is one style of writing/thinking aspiration that I have is to simplify my writing and my thinking to the fewest of words possible. You and I both know I am far away from that goal, and I am not there yet, so far. But, this is probably my shortest post, yet!
PS: Another author I would be similarly jealous of is James Clear and his 3-2-1 newsletter.
