The best way to figure out the best of two options, is to just try one. If it works, awesome. If not, I guess the other option was correct.
In my case, it was better to write a few articles about Technology, Philosophy, and Work, to realize I didn’t care much for writing about Technology.

What I love about writing is the idea I get to convey.
I love sharing things that have been good for me; and most often that lies in my work or my approach to life, not the tools I use to express myself.
Don’t be afraid to change direction. If you know a better path, take it. What is the alternative? Willful, unfruitful labor? Sounds depressing.
