Writers face 2 major struggles:

1) Capturing what they think and believe into written words

2) Evolving and realizing what they thought they believed in yesterday may not be what they think or believe in now.

In episode 6 of The Organic CEO podcast, I critique my article, “Look for What’s Right in the Organic Industry,” which I wrote 2 months ago.

Who I was when I wrote the article was completely different than who I am now!

Change/evolution can happen that quickly!

Hence, my perspective today is different than what it was 2 months ago.
