Day 19: You only fail when you stop trying


I’ve been struggling to get back on the proverbial horse after missing what feels like about 30 days of posting.

A part of me had resigned myself to the reality that I failed at this attempt to post 100 days of content because I did not post daily and consistently.

Then I had to remind myself that this would only be a failure if I give up on it.

My goal was to post 100 days of blog posts consistently. Which, admittedly, in the very literal sense means one post every day over 100 days.

But as my business coach is always reminding me, we get to define consistency for ourselves. It doesn’t have to be daily. The key part of consistency is showing up repeatedly.

So in light of that version of consistency I have decided to get back on the horse and resume these posts until I get to 100.

I’ll admit, there is some degree of disappointment in realizing that:

  1. I’ve missed a significant chunk of time which impacted my momentum
  2. I won’t be getting to 100 days (and completing this project) in the time frame I’d originally hoped

But I’m continuing on anyway. If for nothing else, for the gratification that. comes from finishing things we commit to doing.

It’s like one of my favorite proverbs—”Fall down 7 times, get up 8.”

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...

Day 4: C’est nöel

This Christmas was a little very different for me. I spent it in a new town in a new province in a part of the country that's still very new to me. When I made the decision to move to New Brunswick, Canada, it was a decision I made based on the potential opportunities...
