S’pose It’s That Time Of Year


In one week I will turn 40. I am getting a bit reflective in the run up to my Birthday. I often get reflective, but I used to wake up trouser-less in the bottom of a skip during my Birthday week.

Things are changing.

Is it me? Am I acting my age at last or is the world changing? This is not a Gammon’s last lament; it is a thought about the ego.

People talk about ego like it’s a bad thing. But our desire to do a good job, our self-trust, our willingness to dance with fear–these are fuel if used properly.

Egomania pushes us to ignore useful feedback, to bristle at input and to refuse to do the work to get better at our craft. It’s actually a sign of fear and weakness.

Ego strength, on the other hand, makes us eager to learn more, engage with the market and figure out what it will take to have the project actually succeed.

I think my sense of self worth, and therefore self respect is growing as I age - I am proud of the man I am growing in to.
