I was THIS close to releasing a brand new version of Recently Missing Children. In fact I had planned on uploading all the changes I had been working on over the last month just this morning…
I had a problem though – a big problem. I can’t go into a lot of detail about it, as I have a “competitor” who blatantly steals my stuff, but I was faced with a very real possibility of being shut down by The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children. Strange I know. You try to help these kids and a whole lot of politics gets in your way.
I was willing to risk it though and intended to implement the changes that might have gotten me into trouble this very morning.
But the way the Tao works – the way natural problem solving works – is that if you just stop thinking for a bit, allow the fears and worries to rage and howl and quiet on their own. Then, often, a very elegant solution will present itself.
That’s exactly how I woke up this morning – with a wonderful solution that seemed to come out of nowhere. I can’t take credit for it because I had no control over it. It just appeared out of the misty fog of awaking.
I figure another two weeks worth of work (read “four weeks” as I can never get my estimates right), but then I should have a safe course that should generate some income while doing a lot of good. I’ll have to give up some great ideas, but it will be balanced by some other great ideas. Yin and Yang.
