I Started Writing Again

I started writing again

I started writing again the other day.

I didn’t do it in order to blow up traffic to my site.  As a matter of fact, for the first few days, I didn’t even promote it.  It was just a mental exercise for me.  The idea was just to have a place to get my thoughts out.  It’s kind of freeing to start writing without an end game in mind.

The key for me to develop a writing practice (as Seth Godin talks about so eloquently in this book) is to not set a minimum.  When I sit down, I don’t have to write “x” amount of words.  I don’t have to be amazing every day.  I just have to give myself permission to show up…imperfectly.  Once I show up, something better might happen.  But it can never happen if I don’t show up at all.

The same is true for me with fitness.

Most days I don’t feel like working out.  So I convince myself to head downstairs on get on the treadmill to walk.  I can do that.  Just walk on the treadmill…and watch some TV.  Once I am on the treadmill, I often feel like doing more.

So here I am…writing just a little bit each day.  I don’t have a specific goal for it.  It just feels right…right now.

I started writing again.

What will you give yourself permission to start today?

The Longer The Idea Sits

Each morning during the week, I walk/run for a couple of miles to get my blood flowing.  It helps with my fitness, but that was not originally the point.  The idea is to get my blood pumping and brain working.  It's been a great habit that helps me start my day on the...
