Showing Up Daily
A friend of mine told me about his monthly newsletter and how he hasn’t written in months. “You write every day, I can’t even write once a month,” he said to me.
However, I find that writing every day is much easier than writing at a reduced frequency. For my personal newsletter, I said I’d send out an email every month. But I haven’t published since April. Writing every month is hard because there’s a lot of pressure to write something great because of the monthly cadence. The added pressure leads to publishing anxiety, and in my case procrastination.
I don’t have that excuse when I’m writing every day. Every day there’s the expectation to write and ship before I sleep. And I take that commitment seriously.
