Woolly thinking

December 31, 2013 – 1 min read


WDG. “Woolly Doable Goal”. What a lovely phrase, courtesy of John Willshire at Smithery.  A great way, I think, to remind ourselves that getting going is easier than we think. Just set yourself a ‘woollly doable goal’. I have a few of these phrases myself, from ‘start before you are ready’, which occasionally graces this website as a byline, to ‘start anywhere’ (from “Everything’s an Offer“).
There is a bigger point here too. It reminds me that reclaiming the woolly, soft, fuzzy, messy part of life which is so often implicitly condemned or eradicated, is good work.

And all in one little acronym. GWJ. Good Work John.
