Five Times A Day – Part One

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:

  1. Focus
  2. Discipline
  3. Hard Work

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?

Impossible.

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.
