Last weekend, I was bored and did what every bored twentysomething does on a weekend – I opened Facebook.
For the fifth time that day. Ahem.
But against popular belief, Facebook (at least MY Facebook, I say condescendingly) isn’t full of crap: I stumbled upon a post of fellow young German-speaking Startup-Founder Leo Widrich, linking to a 30 minute interview of Seth Godin.
I listened to it. I was changed.
There were a lot of gems about how Seth Godin goes about doing what he does. Like “To be productive, I do only 3 things. 1) I don’t watch TV, 2) I don’t go to meetings, 3) I only do work that scares me.”
Or “This isn’t about selling just another book. This about that you need to go out and create your art. Put it out there, so that we can all enjoy it.” (I’m paraphrasing.)
Blogging scares me. The thought of blogging daily, like Seth does, scares the hell out of me.
It also excites me. Hugely.
So I decided to start a 30 day challenge. For the next 30 days, each morning after my morning ritual, I will spend 30 minutes blogging and I will have to post something, no matter how little. Something meaningful, something I wrote myself. Not just a link to cats on youtube.
So that’s what I’m going to do.
See you tomorrow then.
And now you tell me again Facebook kills our souls and steals our time!
PS: You really need to listen to that interview. If you did, tell me what you think about it in the comments below.
