And then I was worried I wouldn’t do it again for two weeks

Yesterday, I published a post here about the time it takes to blog every day. When I wrote that and then hit publish, I was a little scared I’d immediately fall off the bandwagon and not post anything else here for a while.

It’s true that it only takes maybe 20 minutes for me to write a post for each day, but like I’ve said before, it takes every minute of the rest of my life to be on the look out for ideas to write.

Finding the time to write isn’t the challenge. It’s finding the inspiration and energy to write.

What I try to do is trap the inspiration when it hits by making sure I have a pad of paper, an Evernote document, or a napkin available whenever I get an idea. And then finding the energy is like Jocko Willink says, “Your will doesn’t break – it never shows up in the first place.”

But this isn’t about writing. Writing is just a vehicle for explaining what it’s like to do anything every single day. The same could be applied for washing dishes, waking up early, Most of the time, it’s not about the time it takes. That’s just the lazy way to say it. Most of the time, it’s about the inspiration and the energy.
