Here is the question you have probably been asking yourself for the last five minutes: what was the last thing you did that wasn’t finished? Or if you answered, “I don’t know,” what was the last thing that you did that was unfinished? The answer is, “nothing.
This is the sort of thing that can make the difference between a great day and a great day. When you have been sitting at home and all you have to do is go out and start something new, it is a great thing to do but as with everything else in the world, you have to do that in the right order. In the right order, you need to find the right people, find the right thing to do, and then you need to get it done and done well.
It’s a common theme in history, and it’s a common theme in my own life. I started a business and then it all fell apart, and then I made a decision that I would never be a part of business again. I tried to have some sort of epiphany about business, and in the end I’m glad I didn’t. The same goes for me.
If I were to summarize my life, I would say I have been living with a series of epiphanies. The first epiphany was to write an article about business for a magazine I was working on for a year. The second epiphany was that I was going to be a business owner. And the third epiphany was that I was going to have to move into a new apartment and start a business of my own. And that is what I have been doing.
Now, I’m not going to say that I’m always on epiphanic highs, or that I’m always on epiphanic lows. But whenever something like that happens, it ends up having a lot of the same effects. I’ve had a few of those epiphanies, and I’m still having some of them. The epiphanic highs and lows are just the beginning.
We’ve mentioned the epiphanic highs and lows a few times here on The A.V. Club. We’ve talked about not being able to keep up with the constant stream of highs and lows that come with being a self-employed person, and that you can only expect to get so many of those kinds of highs and lows. But the epiphanic highs and lows are just the beginning.
The epiphanic highs and lows are the first thing that come to mind when we think of self-employment. That first epiphany is the thing that leads to the next epiphany. In the case of self-employment, we get an epiphany from our boss, our spouse, our kids, or our friends. Im sure that it happens to others too.
That first epiphany can turn into a few more epiphanic highs and lows over the weeks, but for most of us the epiphanic highs and lows are the first thing that come to mind after we get our first job offer from a potential employer.
For those of you who are wondering what we do for a living, we are a couple of engineers and designers. We make prototypes, designs, and mockups of products to sell to potential clients and customers.
