you're reading...

Two Weeks.

If you’ve spent any time reading my blog or talking to me in person, you’ve probably experienced my deep love for Seth Godin.  He’s an ideas master; a brilliant thinker and writer.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read his blog while sighing a long, heavy sigh at how good it feels to be known.  Seth Godin just gets me.

Anyways, this little bit of context will help you in understanding this post.  Last week Seth wrote about “Talker’s Block,” making the case that writers experience “blocks” because they aren’t in the practice of writing often enough.  He says that everyone should be writing publicly EVERY DAY:

“Do it every day. Every single day. Not a diary, not fiction, but analysis. Clear, crisp, honest writing about what you see in the world. Or want to see. Or teach (in writing). Tell us how to do something.”

So of course, I read this and I am pissed.  For real pissed.  Why?  Because Seth Godin gets me and I trust him and so now I have to start writing everyday.  Dang you Seth Godin.

I’m starting with a commitment to write a post every day, for two weeks.  This is my commitment to myself, to you, and to Seth.

Seth Godin, you will probably never read this blog post, but I hope you’re happy.
