What I take away
I loved that Jim always prioritised his self-expression and followed it no matter what. That led him to writing his songs, creating a business and writing books!
He inspired me with his courage. He accepted a job writing code on Mac, without being able to write code on Mac and learned on the job.
This courage was one of my main take-aways: just do. Nobody knows anyway, everybody is scared, you might as well go and do it. And expose what you are hiding. Oh well, Jim said it so well, read from his words:
More about Jim
Here is Jim's bio with his own words:
"I have spent most of my life as a touring songwriter. The music of my band, Jim's Big Ego, has been featured on NPR multiple times and I enjoy a cult following. Typically, when inspiration for a story struck, I wrote a song. Some years ago, the inspiration for a longer story hit me, and I decided to write a novel.
When I'm not out touring, I write code and create websites for artists and small businesses. I live in Boston, MA with my wife and two young daughters.
I am driven by the need to create something new and original. I have always been this way. In my songwriting career, I have endeavored to write lyrics that will catch the listener and encourage them to try out a new perspective on life. This is what drives my writing now. Speculative Fiction tends to focus on negative trends, but creating a compelling dystopia doesn't interest me. Like the present, the future will be a mix of good and bad. I try to imagine the good that might arrive in spite of all the bad because imagination is the first part of creation."
