I spend a lot of time just consuming new ideas: reading blogs, twitter, books, watching TED talks… theres a lot of information out there.
And yet until recently blog was sitting stagnant.
I came up with the idea to use it as an incentive:
When I feel like consuming - I’m at a loose end, the automatic response is just to read blogs for a while.
Don’t. Publish instead.
If I’m struggling with a problem.
Write about it.
I decided I’d try this for a week. And it’s been 2 weeks now.
I’m not doing it religiously but it got me started blogging again.
I’m still reading other blogs - but only a few key ones - and only when I actually have time - not when procrastinating.
Try it out.
Leave a comment and let me know if this worked for you too.
Or just tell me what strategies you have instead.
