These are my dots: An experiment in letting go of my story.

PersonalAug 2021

I do many things, I always have. Drawing is one of them. I have drawn as a way to document my world for years, if not even my entire life, but have done so somewhat in secret. Not out of shame, but, because it doesn't fit into a neat story together with code, design, and my many other curiosities.

But, as of late, I've been practicing giving up control of my story and instead let it unfold as it wants to. Like Jobs said at Stanford in 2005, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in the future.

I make big drawings with thick sharpies, I also make a mean investor pitch deck, I'm currently learning how computers are built all the way down to the lower levels of transistors and boolean logic, I design decent brands, I've read most of Carl Jung's books, and in my job I synthesize products into stories.

These are my dots...
