Never Stop

You may or may not know that in addition to everything else I’m currently writing a book. It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. The range of emotions I’ve gone through has been exhausting from: 

 

Who is this book is for?

 

How should it read?

 

This first draft is shit.

 

Actually, this is the shit!

 

Who the fuck am I to write a book?

 

Should I say this?

 

The trick I’ve learned is as with anything is to keep going. When I don’t feel like writing that’s when I write and when I do it feels fucking intoxicating. I’m trying to be the person I would want to emulate, that creates the energy and necessity to never want to stop.

 

I’ll be adding a slogan range to my merch collection encouraging the above. Check out the merch designs to date.

The Chase

With the range of social media platforms there’s the impulse to believe that by being an early adopter and curating on them it’s a shortcut to build engagement in your brand. I’ll be brutally honest with you, I think A Bunch Of Deckheads content is the shit. The numbers and engagement to date however suggest otherwise, which is fine. 

I remind myself of the following:

Show up

Be brave

Be generous

Be patient

Own my real estate and assets 

If Donald Trump, can get taken off Twitter I most definitely can. With time I’d like to believe it will add up. With that said I can’t believe the Bunch Of Deckheads compilation is up to Vol 9.

Let Me Show You The Way To Go

It’s no secret that I’m a massive Kobe fan, his passing hit me hard. With it being a year since his death on the 26th January understandably there were a number of tributes. An interview was shown where he was asked how he would like to be remembered:

“I’ve always said that I wanted to be remembered as a player that didn’t waste a moment. Didn’t waste a day. I felt extremely blessed with a God-given talent. At the same time, I didn’t take it for granted at all. So if I could be remembered as a person with a lot of talent, but did everything he could to overachieve and lived every day like if he’s was the 12th guy on the bench. 

Kobe Byrant

That spoke volumes to me. Kobe had one of the most decorated NBA careers yet that was his mentality, better never stops. With the repositioning of the Deckhead imprint there’s a lot of work that lies ahead. Rightly or wrongly it is my intent to forge ahead as if I got a chip on my shoulder, what I think of my brand is irrelevant. I will however be relentless in my efforts to prove it. 

Miss you Kobe

 

The Choice Is Yours

I’ve come to the realisation that in order for this imprint to grow, I need to be mindful that the choices I make which lead to more of the same are ones that I in fact relish. 

Responsibility 

Connection

Generosity 

Kindness 

Creativity 

Ownership

Choices like the above I believe will only serve the Deckhead imprint in good stead.

Find A Way

Luckily I’ve been able to remain healthily preoccupied during lockdown to date. Admittedly, I’ve had my moments but overall, they’ve been few and far between. I would attribute this to learning the skills required to achieve what I envisage for the Deckhead brand. That’s the trick isn’t it, start with the end in mind and take the subsequent steps. You’ll never be assured of an outcome, however you’ll never start without one in mind. 

Some fella called Confucius said, the man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. If we were assured of a desired outcome, we would do whatever it takes to achieve it. Sadly, we become too preoccupied with what we have to do or whether or not it’s feasible before we even try. I’m empathise, but I want to find out.

With what I’m trying to achieve with A Bunch Of Deckheads my passion to learn has intensified. One of my many personal mandates is to become a learning machine, which I appreciate isn’t always sustainable. Frankly, it’s fucking exhausting. Slight digression but I had to ask myself given my love for words why do I have a proclivity to use profanity? I concluded like cash, it just gets the job done better. 

Passion is a multiplier. If you’re fortunate enough to find what your passion is, especially from a young age it can change the context of your life. However, I don’t necessarily believe that you should be resigned to serendipity by way of it’s realisation. It should be relentlessly pursued while in the interim invested in what you do, project passion into everything you do. 

I totally understand the rationale behind constructs, they give us a framework from which we understand the world. I'm arguing that we create our own, providing it's not to the detriment of others of course, our constructs can reorientate the trajectory of our lives. My passion for learning will afford me incredible upside on a personal and professional front, providing I remain consistent. This will be predicated by my psychology, not some Hustle Pornstar rhetoric I worked twenty four hours straight bullshit. Besides, to that point if you're happy doing so there's no need to pontificate about it. The questions I'm concerned with are how do I navigate the terrain of emotional labour, the accompanying fear, will it work and how will the work be received?  It’s an hypothesis I intend to personally substantiate.

The tools for learning are abundant. It's the desire to learn that's scarce.
