Number 1 september 2014 …the Wakefield Doctrine
Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)
…as has happened an un-counted number of times since I started this blog, I am in an introspective phase of…. ‘what am I doing with this Wakefield Doctrine’. Surely this time of re-examination is as common as frayed-waistband underwear, however, it always manifests as a unique this-time-it’s-different experience. For better or for worse, I have decided to be more….public with my self-examination. My questioning of the whole point of my writing a blog, regardless of the fact that it is about a unique and productive and fun theory of personality, seems to be an inevitable part of the process that started …(no frickin way!) 5 years ago.
Of course, for those of us who would write a blog, every moment of doubt is always sincere and heartfelt and genuine, (no!-stop-giggling-I’m-trying-to make-a-serious-point-here). But like the first crush/first car/first fear, this time feels different. That is, I suspect, as it is supposed to be.
So, on each of the next 30 days, I will write a Post. They will be long Posts and they will be short Posts, they will be weird Posts and they will be TToT Posts (wait, I already said ‘weird’) and, for the record, I have not the slightest idea if there will be any point or value or anything other than….quantity.
…. so to start, I know what it is that’s bothering me about the state of the Wakefield Doctrine blog:
that I would write such a sentence and actually leave it in the Post
that, for those who were around for the first couple of years, the Wakefield Doctrine was the point of this blog, not clark Farley-that-guy-with-that-‘personality-theory’
a (seeming) loss of the ‘hey! this is the Wakefield Doctrine and you should see what it can do!’
…and, (to certain Readers), yes this blog will continue to be a semi-public experiment/demonstration of the use and efficacy of the principles of the Wakefield Doctrine as a tool for self-development.
but then, you knew that, didn’t you.
I will invite you to the home site of the Wakefield Doctrine (where you can read all this and look at the pitchas!
