59 Days Down (306 To Go)


Today is February 28th.

59 days have ticked off the calendar in 2018.

A mere 306 days left until 2019.

299 day until Christmas.

Apart from the obvious conclusions of life is fleeting, make the most of our time, our days are limited, make a difference, etc., I'm thinking about the first two months of the current year.

They have been full and satisfying.

In the first 60 days I've traveled a fair amount.

  • Atlanta (twice)
  • Baltimore
  • Nashville
  • Memphis
  • Phnom Phen, Cambodia
  • Ho Chi Min City and Tuy Hoa, Vietnam (with a layover in Doha, Qatar)

Also spent a weekend at a writer's conference in Asheville.

It's a busy season at the day job.

And I've gained traction in other projects, as well.

Including this one.

In the first 59 days of 2018 I've posted to the blog 59 times.

Here's what I've learned about a daily writing habit:

Consistency is key.
The calendar is my friend.
It's critical to know top priorities (at all times).
Make a little progress daily - don't set up to fail.
Doing the hard work (of getting words out every day) is the only way to achieve desired results.

In a mere 59 days, I've found this blogging project to be transformative. Should be fun to see what the next 306 will bring.
