Begin as You Mean to Go
Posted On May 25, 2017
Time for goals. Where am I going, and how will I know if I get there?
I need to have a purpose in honing my skills and capturing those pressing ideas – the ones that tumble around in my head until I get them out. My challenge has been that I jot down the idea in a notebook, and it is like I have put the ball in someone else’s court. Only that someone else is me, so I need to pick up the ball and develop those ideas.
For now, I’m keeping it simple.
- Write daily. Produce something. Be in the habit of writing.
- Publish 1 entry per week. This way I’ll be forced to produce something of reasonable quality. Hashtag discipline. Hashtag Slight Edge, baby.
I imagine these ideas will morph over time, but for now this will do.
If you’ve never picked up The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson, I HIGHLY recommend it. But only if you’re the type of person who has ever started something and not finished it. I know – there are only of few of us out there.
