If nobody reads this blog I still win.
Don’t get me wrong: I would love to have hundreds, nay, thousands of readers showing up everyday to read what I write.
But if they don’t, if nobody shows, I am not bothered or embarrassed.
Because what I am looking to do by writing here every day is:
- Fulfill a commitment I made to myself
- Get to play with words and practice writing and, in the process, acquire the tools to improve as a writer
I believe that showing up and practicing something everyday is the most effective way to improve a skill.
Therefore, regardless of what else is going on I intend showing up and writing, and improving as a writer.
If you show up and find anything of value: great, it’s a win for both of us.
If you don’t, it’s just a win for me.
Is there something in your life that would benefit from you showing up every day and practicing? Something that would benefit from the 10,000 hours practice referred to in ‘Outliers’ by Malcolm Gladwell?
