Rish Outcast 47: Ask Me No Questions (The Voyage Home)

Okay, last time.  This is your brain on drugs.

Rish finally gets to the end of Tom Tancredi's list of probing questions.  With these out of the way, maybe we'll be able to start doing story presentation episodes agai--

I enjoy your work, Mr. Outfield.

Also, I looked into it and found this:

You do good work and I am looking forward to Side dish of Sidekick or whatever it will be. Some of these ramblings seem familiar enough so that it is sometimes difficult to differentiate between you and the voice (voices) inside my own head.

Is it just me or does it cut off at the end? After Sir Fake Sean explains the Creative Commons there's a section asking people to contact you, but it cuts off mid sentence. Unless that was an outtake that was a fragment of you running out of recording space?

Anyway I think you're way too hard on yourself in this one in particular, Rish. I don't know what you were like ten years ago because the Dunesteef doesn't go back that far, but I have seen something of a transformation over the past few years. If the podcasts are any indication (and let's face it, they are just a few edits short of the real deal right?) you've made changes far more significant than a simple habit change. Do you think the Rish Outfield of five years ago would be publishing things and advertising them in the podcast? Can I get a mildly offensive guest host "Hell no"?

Soon after you and I started talking through email is when this was recorded, so it's just catching up on the Rish Outcast now. No you don't form a habit if you do something straight for 25 days. But if you write for 25 days straight you know what you get? 25 days straight of writing. And the amount of writing you did would have stretched over a few months if this was the Rish Outfield of a few years ago.

I realize that to you, these accomplishments happened gradually and so they don't seem like a big deal. You're successful, you get over the success and soon that success becomes normal. That's the new baseline. It's so easy for us to ignore personal progress, especially when it takes a long time and isn't quantifiable - and everything truly important is like that. But I've been listening to your podcasts, which in a way is like seeing your progress in fast forward. And it's a lot easier for me to see improvement from that perspective. Also, I'm not you, so I'm not your worst critic.

Just trust me, you're doing good.
