I haven’t missed a day in many, many years – the discipline of sharing something daily is priceless … Over time, the blog adds up. People remember a blog post a year after I wrote it. Or they begin a practice, take an action, make a connection, something that grows over time. The blog resonates with people in so many fields, it’s thrilling to see how it can provoke positive action.
I write daily, in almost a religious manner. I write on Christmas Day, I write on Sundays. I like to quit writing before I get tired of writing, that way I’m hungry to come back the day after. And the real enemy in writing is days when you get nothing written. If you write something every day, I don’t care how much or how little it is, it’s going to add up, and over time you’ll get more done each day. Just make it an absolute rule. It might not be writing for everyone, but whatever it is, do it every day, get better at it every day. Do it.
Writing is essential to me, and I understand how skills compound, so writing something every day seems sensible.
My daily writing
My daily writing will be about improving how to think, how to live, how to interact with others, how to show up in the world. Overall, it’s how I might be marginally better at whatever I’m doing every day.
