Better late than never is not always about change

Better late than never. A phrase we have heard since we were children. Why? Because it’s true.

It’s better to make difficult, positive changes to correct poor habits than it is to not change. Sounds backwards but it’s true…

Better late than never is not always about change.

Sometimes it’s about becoming aware of something that wasn’t fully understood – something that once understood, gives us courage and strength in a way we never saw coming.

Writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different websites) has happened every single day since April 1, 2009.

i don’t write for:

  • SEO
  • Followers
  • Fame
  • Sales

i write because it transforms me.

The transformation is facilitated by the illumination from a daily habit that is public and transparent – also known as accountability.

Without accountability we are sunk. And by accountability, i’m not talking about some bull crap theory-looks-good-on-paper accountability.

Accountability that is so easy to recognize, it’s impossible to hide.
