The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book


April 2019

So, here I am, on 4/25/19, working my way through my knowledge bank of articles saved and curated for my website, Knowledge ATMs: A peak behind the scenes of self-publishing, crowdfunding and working for yourself, for which I’ve had to sift through an avalanche of what turned out to be bogus or at least iffy stuff on the Internet.  

I assembled a list of major topics that I need to get up to speed on:  Self-Publishing (duh); The Book Authoring Process Itself; Writing as a Living; The Business Side of Writing and Website Design. 

Even though our Holiday Tau is easy to dismiss as a commercial for Coca Cola — which I did at first, I’m reconsidering as a short and sweet guiding principle.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Find the real thing. There will be no good substitutes.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

OMG.  Amen.  

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: You don’t have to be the best, brightest, most creative, quickest, coolest or anything else.  What you really need to be is finished with this deal so you can move on.  Cancer

Except for middle of the night self-doubts that deplete my energy, I’ll just suspend my critical thinking.

“3”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “There are many people who will be happy to see you do well. Knowing this will be a key part of your motivation.” Virgo

Let’s hope so.

“3”  Steve Harvey, 62: Maybe you don’t think what you’re doing is all that special.  You’re too close to the work to see what the others see, or to know the true value you bring.” Capricorn

Let’s get out of this place.  

“4”  Steve Nash, 45: You’re feeling empowered to follow your own whims, especially when they lead to different physical locations than you normally haunt.” Aquarius
