Ha, well this goal of writing a blog post every day didn't last very long. It sounded good on the first of January! Perhaps I should revise it – to every other day.
It's a good lesson though. And I love those things I can learn and grow from.
- If I'm going to set a goal, and make it public, I have to follow through successfully. Or else get called out on it. And I do not want that to happen again.
- It does make me accountable – either to do what I set out to do (write a blog each day) or to make more realistic goals.
- On only day three, I have already fallen short of my goal. However, the good thing is, I am writing something. It might only be a little explanation for my tardiness, but it's something.
- When I want to write, I must make it a priority. I can't waste time checking my social media for way too long, or doing anything else that isn't productive in some way. Reading is productive. Thinking is productive. Taking the dogs for a walk is productive. And writing is productive. But going through each and every one of my friends' posts to see what I might be missing – well, that is not the best use of my time.
The good thing is, I now have two blog posts in three days. If I keep this up, I might end up more prolific than I have been in the past. I miss blogging, not so much for the writing part, or the sharing part (which can be a little scary and/or uncomfortable for me) but because when I blog I also check out the blogs of my friends, and I miss doing that.
Let's see where this takes me.
