Something that I have struggled with over time has been consistency in my posting. I find my inspiration and desire to write constant, but my ability to create the time to write those posts very difficult.
It’s easy to get caught up in excuses and put off a post for another day or week, that then turns into another month. There’s always some excuse, an event, or project, or impeding exhaustion.
Taking the advice of venture capitalist Fred Wilson, who has managed to blog consistently for years on end, I installed WordPress onto my phone.
I connected my site to my phone, which gives me the ability to write short posts like these. I am a big fan of the idea, mostly because it revolves around setting up an environment that removes friction (annoying to login and open up blog on desktop) from my desired result (more writing.)
Writing is something that I truly enjoy as an avenue to express the random thoughts that come about every day.
This is why I named this blog whirling thoughts, it’s a safe place to plop down the random ideas and thoughts that pop up from time to time for an occasional audience.
The key barrier from making this a habit / successful routine is my lack of consistency. Really need to focus on writing more stuff down and creating consistency.
Not sure where the idea came from originally (buffett?) but knowledge and habits are like compound interest. Continuous small actions, such as writing everyday, ultimately creates significant improvement and growth or what people refer to as the process.
Moving forward, I aim to improve my consistency and focus.
