Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

What will you write about today?

Yesterday’s sunrise walk to the gym.

Every morning it’s the same.

What will you write about today?

Ten and two-thirds years since first writing those five differently-themed blog posts on April Fools Day 2009, it’s fascinating how each day continues to offer something to write about.

Can you imagine? Never taking a day off. No, it’s unimaginable. And yet it’s true.

There’s no easy answer.

Perhaps, there’s no answer at all.

How does the Sun unfailingly return each morning?

It just happens.

Writing, i suppose, is like that too.

Approach and avoidance messages

Look for the chipped paint or look for the smiley face? Photo: Hotel parking garage next to Goucher College.

Read yesterday’s message in the next paragraph…

You will never reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by staying in your comfort zone.

Now, read today’s version, rewritten with an approach mindset rather than an avoidance mindset (above)…

You will always reach your potential, and discover your purpose, by getting out of your comfort zone.

Feel the difference?

In the last few weeks, it’s been nagging me that my traditional approach leads with avoidance. Casually, yet with decent intentionality, i’ve been playing around with moving to an approach mindset. My clock is ticking (so is everyone’s) and i’d like to transform in a way i never have.

Would Your Life Change?

Merry Christmas 2019

Writing is not going to make you famous. Writing won’t make you more popular. Writing is no way to earn a living. Why write then? For how it changes you. Ninety percent of writing is half mental.

Christmas is 60 days away from this morning, and i’m present and mindful to recognize this.

It’s fascinating how daily, purposeful writing has improved my life – and how daily writing improves the lives of everyone else who consistently writes.

If you decide to give gifts to loved ones this year, perhaps the simple gift of encouragement – to journal, to blog, whatever.

Also encourage them to not use personal social media platforms.

Why?

Because people appreciate your consideration when you create a “business page” separate from personal updates. Another option is to buy a domain name and blog there. Allow others to opt in versus being stuck because they are your family or friend.

When will it end?

Big claim. Is it verifiable? Does anyone care?

When will it end?

What?

Writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts about Life‘s Five Big Choices.

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

9 years, 11 months, and 30 days so far

It’s been nine years, 11 months, and 30 days so far.

What?

Tomorrow, March 31, 2019, i finish a decade-long prolific blogging effort. On April Fools Day 2009, i started what was destined to fail: a 100-day, self-imposed writer’s boot camp to write five daily, differently-themed blog posts on five individual websites.

Not only did it not fail, but it hasn’t stopped for a single day, for a decade.

How is this even possible?
