Most posts I write are relatively brief; however, this one may take a while. And bailing at this point is up to you.
But may I just say one thing before you go, and it’s something I’ve always known. In fact, I honestly believe every one knows this.
The difference between those who are excellent, versus those who are good or very good, is three things:

In February, I recall a conversation with our son (then eight) that went like this, “If you want to be a good reader, you should read a lot. If you want to be a good runner, you should run a lot.”
He was doing his nightly reading homework, and I was doing my nightly stretching in preparation for the August Masters Track & Field World Championships in Finland.
Then the epiphany, “If you want to be a good writer, you should write a lot.”
So I set out on a 100-day challenge. Write every day. Perhaps a stretch with one daily blog, but I had set up five blogs.
How in the hell heck does a person write five blogs a day, every day?
Well, maybe not impossible for 100 days, right? I mean, apply the keys to success – focus, discipline and hard work.
One-hundred days. “You can do it, dude”, I said to myself.
