The Momentum of "Not Right Now"

by Michael G.

Sometimes you're sitting there, doing a bunch of things, and realize "Wow. It's been a really long time since I wrote something on my blog."

Then you realize you've said the same thing pretty frequently for years. Then you still don't write anything, but just think through a bunch of posts you'd like to write.

It's funny how these things work. Running/exercise, blog post writing, podcasting. These are all things I really love doing and sometimes just drop for extended periods of time. They're all so similar in that I love doing them in the moment, and get hooked on them. Then, one day, I realize I just haven't done one of these things (or any of them) in an embarrasingly long time.

Thinking "today's not the day" or "not right now" has an incredible power to keep your momentum of not ever doing something you want to do. And sometimes you just have to decide that today is the day.

So here we go. A blog post. About not posting blog posts. Let's see if this turns into more frequent posts. I've got loads of them bouncing around in my head.

Fingers crossed!
