Doubt. What is it? And where does it come from?
Methinks Doubt sometimes wears the hat of weariness as it wanders in from the land of Too-Much-to-do-and-Too-Little-Time. Other times Doubt wears the hat of wisdom as it taps you on the shoulder like an angel that would whisper in your ear. But when Doubt is upon you, who can tell the Angel from the Angst?
One of Brittington’s great joys each month is sharing a videotaped moment of absurdity with you from the office of the Vice Chancellor. This week, he decided he had gone too far. He said,
People are going to think that all we ever do is drink Scotch and act silly.”
As you know, Whittington’s epic Tour of Scotland is offered to each class during one of their evenings on campus as a voluntary tasting of extremely rare and distinctive bottles of single-malt Scotch donated by various alumni. A licensed bartender, Whittington can pour 9 tastes of Scotch while delivering the alcohol of just 1 drink. He even keeps a Police-edition breathalyzer in his desk, just to be sure that everyone stays safe.
Anyway, the BritWhit was fretting and worrying and getting ready to create a whole new video when I said,
Dude, the only people who get the Tower Update are Academy Alumni and they know full well how serious we are. They’ve been here. They know how hard everyone works and the value of what we teach.”
“I think I should do a different video.”
That’s when I slapped him and said,
Just put it out there and I’ll ask the rabbit hole tribe to give you feedback. They’re your family. They’ll tell you they love it or they’ll tell you that you’re embarrassing them. And then you’ll know.”
This is your cue. Now it’s all you. Watch the video and email your opinion to Daniel@WizardAcademy.org
