“The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book”
Hi and welcome to Sunday’s Episode 128 in the first season of “My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 1st day of December in winher of 2019
I have a confession to make. Here’s what I’ve learned about myself. I’m good at getting things going, but not good at completing them.
I rationalize my procrastination in the way Leonardo da Vinci hardly ever completed a work of art for which he received patronage. Instead he’d follow the genius of his curiosity across what would much later become disciplines of science and nature.
He kept brilliant, detailed, and elaborate notes and sketches while he pursued other passions — and those notes rivaled his art and the art of his peers in the 15th century.
I work on several projects at once.
I treat them as components which must fit together at the right time. Each one requires a number of tasks to complete so everything works at the same time like all the gears of an old fashioned clock.
According to Tim Harford, the author, “Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform our Lives” Brian Eno’s makes his messy work for him, because he’s got several creative projects in the works at various stages. If or when one doesn’t pan out, he simply switches to one of his others to bring it to fruition.
So, what’s that preamble got to do with today?
Not much, except to say I spent most of the day working on a creative brief describing 17 steps in a phased build out — an attempt to synchronize all of my messy passion projects.
Maybe I was slip sliding away, but my Patreon launch dominated my “working on the business.”
Goal: By 12/7 launch FOSs request via Writers Cooperative, Facebook and LinkedIn having completed the “Tau of Steves” description relying on Patreon’s help and recommendations to master the chain reaction of Awareness – Interest – Liking – Desire – Trial – Repurchase and Regular Use.
Make it easy for your fans to buy a piece of you, and then advocate on your behalf.
I hardly noticed that like the Soup Nazi in “Seinfield“, Zahn, Winkler, Emma the Baroness and I left the shop without any Holiday Tau for us.
Random ones that make me want change my sign.
But, thank you to whomever this birthday present was for. It certainly fit what my Sunday was shaping up to be.

Any thing else worth noting?
I guess, maybe. I dunno. I’m leaving Smith’s alone. Seems dramatic, though.
“3” Steve Smith, 30: “It would be an understatement to say a person is getting to know you. It’s more like this person is discovering you as an explorer would a mysterious, unknown world.” Gemini
Howey, what’s up. You usually have something worth stealing. But I guess the exception proves the rule, eh?
“2” Steve Howey, 42: “It will be as though some of your dialogue today locked and loaded itself without your knowing and was just waiting to be triggered.” Cancer
So sadly I turn to two comedians and an inventor. Really, this is the best you can do?
“2” Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “Certainty is a dangerous thing in relationships. It squeezes out the need to come to a consensus, to work together, to question and communicate a way to the truth. The healthiest and best relationships are riddled with doubt.” Leo
My last chance lies with the two G-men. I’m just this close to walking away with your Holiday Tau, but wouldn’t feel good about myself if I did.
“3” Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “You’ll be amazed and touched by people’s stories, and they will help you understand your own a little better.” Virgo
