I joke that I think about writing here on a regular basis, which is half true. Half of the time I forget about this place. And the other half, I feel guilty that I didn’t follow through with this public record of my thoughts, learnings, and musings.
I have blamed social media, specifically instagram, for creating a place that reduced the friction of posting, and thereby stealing my brain space. The truth is I don’t post that often on social anymore either.
I have blamed my business, claiming that I spend too much time writing for my clients, as if I have a limit to the words and thoughts that my brain can produce. This is again half true. The truth being I don’t run out of words or thoughts, but I do spend my time working on my client’s projects more than my own.
I have consistently blamed my kids for taking the margin of my evenings and early mornings. This is actually pretty accurate. But, still not a great excuse. Other important things have persisted, so why not this.
So, with all that out in the open, I commit to trying more often, realizing the limitations on me of time and priority. The format will likely remain random, but somehow focused on the pursuit, the striving to do and be more than I was the day before. To connect dots where cloud previously existed. To share gold found in chapter whatever of whichever book (audible) I’m captivated by at the moment. And to publish, to ship, because I know I can, and I believe it will prepare me for the pursuit.
