Reflecting on Write Of Passage

Today I wrote and published a 4000 word article on how to get the most from Write Of Passage, so my writing muscles are tired.

It’s also almost 23:30, because Write Of Passage is timed to suit Americans, and I am not one of those.

But I have just enough energy in me to reflect on what it means to be an alumni mentor for the course, a year and a half after I took it. My experience with Write Of Passage, and subsequently, is a testament to what’s possible in the online education space.

All this (as he gestures around) is the result of me taking that course. Not that it’s all attributable to it, of course, I did most of the work myself. But opening my eyes to this way of being and getting me started on the journey… it did that.

I’m proud to be one of the mentors helping others on journeys of their own. It feels like I’ve come full circle.

I publish a regular newsletter called Thinking Out Loud, which covers things like stuff like building in public, Total Work, solarpunk, carbon removal, sense-making, building communities, creating positive narratives for the future, identity and various other things. 700 subscribers can't be wrong!
