The Challenges of Day Two…

I’m Learning…

I’ve got no energy until I suddenly do. And then it only lasts for a very short burst. So, managed to get one thing recorded last night, hope to work on a couple more tonight.

Please bear with me. I will be late on some workshops. And late getting responses back to homework.

Also, I am working hard on some really cool stuff that predates this accident. One of which I will announce tomorrow because the WMG staff has helped me get it together. This is something we’ve been talking about for a long time. Some of you will be excited.

I am very pleased with how well the Holiday Spectacular Kickstarter is going. That is one of my favorite projects of the year. We hit two stretch goals, a special one and a regular one, over the weekend which got everyone extra reading and extra workshops. Nearly to the next stretch goal with three days left. Sure hope everyone jumps in. Here’s the link:

Again, I want to thank everyone for the fantastic support and good thoughts as I recover from this accident and surgery. Means a lot to me.

    Hi Dean!
    Wishing you a quick recovery and healing – and looking forward to many more years of learning from you.

  • Anne

    So sorry to hear of your accident. Hope you can take all the time you need to heal and get well again. Wishing you all the best.

  • Rebecca M. Senese

    Take your time and rest up, Dean. There is no rush. I know I’d rather have you heal up well than push yourself. I’m sure those of us in workshops are just fine with waiting as long as needed. Take all the time you need, especially since you have to be well enough to protect Gavin from those nefarious balloons.

  • T Thorn Coyle

    Watching the Decade Ahead this morning–which was a terrific installment–I cracked up when you said:

    “Facing reality…it’s annoying.”

    I’m so similar! I often want to push too hard, too soon. I’m grateful for the impulse because it keeps me motivated instead of stalling out on excuses. But on the other hand, as you mentioned in the videos, I’ve also had to learn the hard way that setting *realistic* goals is what’s important. Otherwise, we make things worse and take longer.

    I’m so glad you talked about all of this again. Great teaching.

    Hope you get a lot of good, healing rest!

  • Lorri Moulton

    Dean, please don’t worry about trying to stay on schedule while recovering. I do not care if things are late…you have a really good excuse. Take care of YOU, so we can all enjoy many more of your projects in the future!

  • Kate Pavelle

    This takes time, Dean. Those bursts of energy are like movie teasers for a show scheduled to release three months from now. Sounds like you’re doing great, just keep it fun. (You have been cheer-leading me with these very words as I have been healing and trying not to bang my head against my walker, and they worked!
    Backatcha, then. You’re doing great, no pressure, keep it fun.
    I’ve tried to think of life rolls and recovery as “book research,” too. It leads to fun observations that distract in the most pleasant way. Sometimes, an off-ball question tends to freak out the medical staff.
