Day 1: 100 days is a long time


100 days is a long time to do anything. Well, to do anything consistently.

I’ve tried many a challenges, began many a projects, and truth be told the ones that made it past 100 days didn’t have 100 consistent days of effort. I’ve started and stopped, shifted, lost focus, forgot, got distracted.

In essence, despite my best intentions, life often got in the way. Which is not to blame life. Or maybe it is while shifting the blame from myself…I’m not sure yet.

Day 15: The peril of missed days when building a new habit

When it comes to building new habits and establishing new patterns of behavior, one of the absolute worst things you can do is lose momentum. Speaking from experience here. Not unlike some of my other efforts to establish habits, this 100 Days challenge has come with...

Day 5: Systems make the difference

Four days into this project and I already recognize that if I'm going to make it to the end of 100 days having written daily, I'm going to need a system. For starters, staring at a blank page and not having any brilliant ideas can be demoralizing. And that's the...
