I’m publishing a blog post daily for 30 days just to see what happens.

When was the last time you tried something new? When was the last time you tried something for the first time? When was the last time you did something for yourself?

It’s so easy to get caught up in the monotony of our day-to-day lives.

Wake up → eat → commute → work → eat → work → commute → exercise → eat → read → sleep → wake up → etc. etc. etc.

Well, I’m changing something. I’m trying something new. I’m trying something for the first time. I’m doing something for myself.

For the next 30 days I’m publishing a blog post daily. Just to see what happens. I have no idea what has compelled me to do this. I do know that it feels right in this moment (as I’m writing) and that in the spirit of this project I will hit the publish button as soon as I’m finished writing — just so I’m made accountable.

As I write this it’s around 930pm on a Sunday night. My daughter is asleep. I’ve said goodnight over the phone to my dear wife who is currently overseas on business.

As I sat here a moment ago ready to close the lid on my Mac, I had an urge to write. What you’re reading is the result of that urge. It feels good. It feels good to be unfiltered. Unedited. Un… whatever.

See what I did there? I couldn’t complete my thought, but I wrote it and you read it. That’s creative freedom, no? Wow. This is going to be fun.

My new project

I’m publishing a blog post daily for the next 30 days just to see what happens. Just to make sure there’s some kind of consistency and accountability, here are a few rules:

  1. I will only publish on Medium, in a new publication I created just for this project: The Daily Blog. (visit the publication and press Follow to keep up).
  2. I will only write directly into the Medium writing tool.
  3. I will only edit posts minimally. Means spell check is OK, but using my editor, restructuring to improve readability or filtering my voice by changing anything that I’ve written is not.
  4. I will publish a post everyday for 30 days.

I’m not sure what I will write about. It will be whatever I feel like at the time. But knowing me it’s likely to be in the realm of the following:

  • Leadership
  • Personal development
  • Productivity
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Business
  • Career building
  • Social impact
  • Creativity

So, here it goes. 1 post. Daily. For 30 days.

Wish me luck.


To follow along, follow my publication: The Daily Blog.

Thanks

Ryan
