Can you imagine someone daring you to write five differently-themed blog posts every single day of the year for six straight years?

Year seven begins in less than a week.

Slow and steady evolution (this was MLC two years ago)

 

What if we accepted a short term dare or bet – one that seemed impossible?

What if we blew it out of the water?

Then what?

Blogging batting average is 99.93175. After 1,464 consecutive writing days, I finally missed a day. Yesterday. The story about why is brief, and it’s here.

Dear Son, I can’t stop writing five daily blogs, not yet

Dear Son, I can’t stop writing five separate, daily blogs, not yet.

After four consecutive years, the focus and discipline is gaining some attention.

Only you and I can honest say that it was simply a 100-day challenge. Nothing more, nothing less.

But now, there is no end in sight.

And no ability to skip a day.

And no (current) explanation that will make any sense to anyone.

The unspoken pain of obligation to your brand. For four years, I’ve written five daily, differently-themed posts. There is so much to do today and I wanted to get a jump start on it.

But first, there’s an obligation, a promise, to solemnly swear to walk the talk. To actually write five different blogs. Every single day. Without fail.

This month I’m inviting the Mid Life Celebration community to follow all five daily blogs about work life balance. It couldn’t be easier to go from this HQ blog to the mental attitude blog , just click -> go to Next Blog

Uncommon Sense

Who writes five daily, differently-themed blogs? Who?

Work life balance… It’s critical, and often unpopular work. It’s mostly “underground”. Someday mainstream? Even taught to children in schools (assuming schools survive)?

Who writes five daily, differently-themed blogs? Who?

The longer the Internet’s only five-a-day blogger writes, the crazier the whole thing seems.

A leader is someone who sees better things in the future and helps others see it and want to go there too.

Insight: Leaders are required to inspire critical, and often unpopular work.
