Into a world of possibility
I’ve always wanted to write more. I tried posting a few articles to my website, but that didn’t excite me. Those times are gone when you quietly post something and people show up to read them. The Internet is filled with sites that are optimized for search engine.
I’m not looking for traffic. I want connections with humans.
I’ve been writing a weekly newsletter in my native language for one and a half year, and I enjoy those replies from readers, long or short.
I love making friends with my fellow writers. Waiting for their emails to appear in my inbox is as exciting as sending mine. It feels great to be doing the same thing with them, even though they live far away from me. It’s as if we work in a team. We show up each week and share our work.
In a world of information overload, genuine intellectual connections are rare. When shallow online interactions become the norm, I yearn for deeper connections.
A Universe of Possibility
It took me a while to start this because I didn’t know what to write about. My Chinese newsletter focuses on how to live a better life, but I’m always afraid that’s too hollow to be useful.
In The Art of Possibility, Rosamund and Benjamin Zander write,
Let us suppose, now, that a universe of possibility stretches beyond the world of measurement to include all worlds: infinite, generative, and abundant. Unimpeded on a daily basis by the concern for survival, free from the generalized assumption of scarcity, a person stands in the great space of possibility in a posture of openness, with an unfettered imagination for what can be.
In the realm of possibility, I should let go of my fear and calculations. I should be who I am. I can write what comes naturally to me.
So what will you write?
Each week, I will share the ideas I’m pondering, the books I’m reading, reflections spanning a variety of topics, on rationality, mindfulness, philosophy, human psychology and behavior, or anything else that strikes my curiosity.
The content will evolve as I continue to learn and grow. It will be inspired by my experiences, for life itself is an abundant game. As David Brooks writes in his book The Second Mountain, “Writing it was my attempt to kick myself in my own rear, part of my continual effort to write my way to a better life.”
Thanks to be on board. I hope you enjoy it.
