I started following Seth Godin's blog about a month ago. I was instantly impressed with the regularity of the daily update. I was also impressed that many of the blog posts were so short, but remained relentlessly robust in their content.
Last week one of his posts was about his coworker Winnie and how she had failed. It was a tongue-in-cheek way of pointing to the blog post that she had made that very day. Her's was a video post that explained how she had previously committed to blogging every day for 30 days. Three weeks in, she started to falter. If you aren't familiar you can see it here. http://yourturnchallenge.strikingly.com
Anyways, I haven't read Seth's last two books yet so I am just getting into this whole concept of 'shipping' he is discussing, and so far, I dig it. I should, I dig most everything Seth says...
I have always wanted to influence my world for the better and I try a million different ways all the time. And then Seth told me 'start now, tell everyone what you want to do'!
So I started writing here everyday. Pre-empting todays official start. Funny, I started this blog with that intention almost a year ago, and I got out about one post a month. I failed as well, Winnie. ;)
No more. I can barely imagine the effects of doing this the rest of my life. What a blessing for my kids and future generations of my family at the very least. Not to mention my current experience and sphere being influenced as well as the network of humans I am lucky enough to interact with will grow. in fact, I have already seen fruits of these efforts and I know it will continue.
Here goes! I am excited and I hope you are too! Hit me up on Twitter @thejessebarney and let's begin.
