Hiring an editor is not the same as buying a solution. An editor is a guide, not the seller of a map. A coach to structure your practice, not to excuse the need for it. Because your relationship with money is a process, not a product, it is always a practice, not a performance. Viewed as a series of snapshots, it is a process of constant ‘failure’. From a more lifelike vantage point, it is a glorious self-developing refinement. In this respect it is exactly like meditation, where each ‘failure’ of attention is a precursor to its ‘successful’ return, in a practice with the potential to powerfully transform who you are. Seen in the context of your relationship with yourself, this sort of ‘failure’ is about caring, not criticism. Your dialogue with your editor (be they external or internal) must embrace the ‘failures’ of your practice for how they refine your world, not obsess over ‘failing’ to reach an impossible end goal.
