#620 - 100 DAYS IN A ROW

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.

  1. Doing something for 100 days straight is possible.
  2. Writing everyday is a possibility when learning everyday is a priority.
  3. Writing to be responsible is a stronger motivation than writing to be read.
  4. Quality comes from quantity.
  5. To become prolific I must abandon perfection.
  6. Having written is 100x more fulfilling than thinking about writing. 
  7. Everyday, either my resolve muscle or my neglect muscle is being exercised. There are no neutral days.  
  8. My pacesetter (Seth Godin) set the bar for my potential
  9. Thinking critically precedes writing clearly
  10. Milestones motivate.

I hope you have been served well over these last 100 days!

On to the next 100!
