It’s 11:22pm on Friday Oct 12st. I almost forgot to blog today. I have slowly been falling off the horse in the last 4 months due to Eureka Room work. I’ve been using posts I had drafted already, making Eureka Room updates, and not really putting as much into it as I had been. My next post, next Tuesday, will likely put me at the 250,000 word mark. That’s a huge milestone. Maybe that’s another reason I’ve gotten a bit less bloggy lately.
At any rate, I’m going to use the opportunity to get back on track. Now that I have an employee and soon to be a second employee, I can get at least 30 minutes back in the morning to start writing and thinking more. I enjoy it a lot. The reason it has not been as much a priority is because, well, no one really reads this blog much and nothing much happens if I don’t post to it.
But the exercise of writing is really important to my practice. There’s also something about having to collect your thoughts and put them in words on paper that really helps to organize your brain in a way that feels relaxing and seems to help overall concentration and my ability to articulate when speaking with people. It’s the same for reading (which I’ve also slowed down on. Last year it was a book each week, now it’s a book every two weeks).
So, to kickstart this blogging habit, I will do 30 days of 30 minutes starting on the 250,000 word post day. I will utilize the 5 minute rule and I will feel satisfied if I can block on 30 minutes for it. Instead of posting first drafts, I will go back to taking 2 sessions per post, with the exception of Eureka Room updates. But I’ll stop leaning so heavily on those as well.
