If you know me, you probably know that I have a lot of ideas.
Some of them happen, and most of them don’t.
This is one of them ideas.
I would like to commit myself to blogging this time. Well, not really blogging, but documenting and sharing things consistently.
I have been wanting to do this for a long time but I’ll just be frank, I didn’t commit and I lack the discipline. Perhaps I never took it seriously. There were always things in the way that “prevented me for being consistent”.
When I think about it, it is what it is, I didn’t take it seriously like my other work.
I think it is time that I try this again.
I have reflected on why some things I want to do did not catch on or did not stick.
It is because I did not commit it to my schedule and daily routine, like the other things that I think is important.
Hence this time, I am going to make this part of my evening routine, 30 minutes before I sleep.
Maximum 30 minutes.
Whatever I write in 30 minutes or less, I will have to publish.
If the post is not completed by the end of 30 minutes, I will end it and continue the next day, no matter how anti-climatic it may be. My apologies!
I will not edit the posts too if I do not have the time. Another “my apologies”!
On that note, I appreciate if you can help me proofread my articles. You may comment the errors with the correction and I will correct them accordingly. Thank you in advance.
Why do I want to do this?
I listen to a lot of podcast and one of them is GaryVee Audio Experience by the loud entrepreneur, Gary Vaynerchuck.
He advocates documenting “the journey”. Be it in audio, video or writing.
The journey here refers to whatever it is that we are trying to achieve, be it entrepreneurial or not. We all are on our respective journeys.
Even though we are nobody now, whatever that we are doing now, even the failures and unglamorous moments:
- can be a lesson for the next generation, especially our own children and grandchildren and
- can be good for our own reflection in the future
I can relate to that. I think it makes sense to document as much as possible.
I am on my journey: recently got married, running Skolafund.com, living in a different country. Maybe a few more interesting things might happen that I can record here.
One day, I hope my own kids can refer to my documents and learn from my wins and losses and be a better person that I do.
30 minutes is up.
Good enough for a first post!
