I’ve decided to stop writing daily. Or at least, to feel like I have to write daily.
It’s been 548 consecutive days including today. I’ve loved the process. It’s helped me think through and articulate my ideas.
But like anything, if you feel like you have to do something, it can become a chore. And nobody wants to read somebody’s chore.
Instead, I’ll write when I want to write.
I’ll still keep the fire under my bottom to publish often. I like the forcing function it creates to show up at a keyboard and publish my best idea that day—whatever that is.
But I won’t feel like I have to publish something. The difference is subtle.
Writing daily has allowed me to build traction with my mentorship work, develop a community, and clarify my thinking. I’m grateful for that.
I plan to keep doing this work a long time. It’s rewarding to me. I’ll just do it at a pace that feels right for me.
So maybe I’ll write to you again tomorrow. Or maybe I’ll skip a day.
Regardless, I’ll do what feels right, not what I feel I have to do.
