One of the better speechwriting blogs out there is Beginner’s Mind: Diary of a Speechwriter, by Chapel Hill, N.C.-based freelancer Allison Wood.
In her latest introspective effort, Wood quotes Stephen Sondheim, who turned 80 this month, about how to work and live:
I chose and my world was shaken. So what?
The choice may have been mistaken; the choosing was not.
You have to move on …
Stop worrying if your vision is new.
Let others make that decision …
they usually do!
You keep moving on …
Anything you do, let it come from you—
then it will be new.
Give us more to see.
