I want to apologize to Bill and all the readers disappointed by the delay in my getting part 5 up.
It’s been due to three reasons.
First, I was a little burnt out and spent from writing up part 4, which was a monster of a post at 20,000+ words, and recharging mentally took a little longer than I expected.
Second, real world commitments have unexpectedly ramped up in the past two weeks.
Third, the organization of all the ideas is taking more time than I expected. This piece is a compilation of a lot of ideas, and I want them organized in as coherent and linear a fashion possible; I don’t want to just toss them at the reader haphazardly. It’s ironic, because one of the nuggets of advice I give in the piece is about the pitfalls of perfectionism, yet I guess I’m still not good at taking my own advice on that front.
It should finally be completed this weekend, and I assure you it will be worth the wait. Thanks for the patience.
