I want to look back on myself in two years and think I was an idiot

Today, I purged about 2,000 emails from my archives. I read through some conversations I’d not seen or thought about in a couple years.

For anyone who was emailing me back then, forgive me – I was a complete idiot. I had no idea what I was talking about. And I was an even worse writer than I am now.

That said, I’d love to look back in two years on what I’m currently writing – posts like this even – and see the same difference… because if my two-year-younger self looks like an idiot, it means I’ve learned a lot.
