(/-_·)/D····➳ Nº99 Aim Above the Mark To Hit The Mark 🏹 🎯
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #99 • View online
“I think there is a level of human responsibility that’s out there just from being a human being put here on this earth. You know, I can choose to be a spectator, be somebody that’s not contributing anything, just being a critic even.
I think being wholly a critic in life is a cop out. I’m a bit obsessed with leaving my own mark on this world; a positive mark.” Jacob Bannon of Converge in Rungs in a Ladder
When I turn on Converge nowadays its often for nostalgia and/or to focus. When Jane Doe came out I was like the kid he describes himself as in this documentary by Ian McFarland: confiding in art & music and determining how to make my mark. I re-listened to Jane Doe & Ian’s film short on Jacob today while writing this issue. The quote above got me thinking about the idea of making a / hitting the mark.
We aim above the mark to hit the mark.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What does it mean to make a mark? To hit the mark? What makes work meaningful?
Of course, this depends. There are project deliverables, revenue goals & intrinsically motivated personal targets. Perhaps the real mark is to make sure the work is meaningful. You can aim high but feeling that your work matters changes everything. I like this article’s take. It is by Cassie Marketos and asserts that: “Your work will matter, as long as it’s truthful.” It really is that simple: make your work truthful & you’ll make your mark!
As always, thank you all for reading!
with appreciation,
Jon
