For the first time in my life, I have done something for 100 days in a row! (Other than eating and going to the restroom!)
Unfortunately, I have not read my Bible for 100 days in a row, I have not brushed my teeth for 100 days in a row, I have not told my wife I love her for 100 days in a row, I have not exercised for 100 days in a row, and I have not done many other things which I probably should have done, by this point in my life, for 100 days in a row. But, I have done this:
I HAVE PUBLISHED A BLOG POST FOR 100 DAYS STRAIGHT.
Being that my "word of the year" is routine, this is a very big deal. But, instead of just celebrating the accomplishment, I want to reflect upon it as well. Here are 10 things I've learned as I have published a blog post to this website, everyday, for the last 100 days.
- Doing something for 100 days straight is possible.
- Writing everyday is a possibility when learning everyday is a priority.
- Writing to be responsible is a stronger motivation than writing to be read.
- Quality comes from quantity.
- To become prolific I must abandon perfection.
- Having written is 100x more fulfilling than thinking about writing.
- Everyday, either my resolve muscle or my neglect muscle is being exercised. There are no neutral days.
- My pacesetter (Seth Godin) set the bar for my potential.
- Thinking critically precedes writing clearly.
- Milestones motivate.
I hope you have been served well over these last 100 days!
On to the next 100!
