Seth Godin, a renowned author and entrepreneur, is known for his daily blog posts that inspire and motivate readers. Many wonder how he manages to produce high-quality content every single day without fail. The answer lies in his commitment to the practice.
Seth Godin views writing as a daily discipline, just like exercise or meditation. He has made a habit of writing every day for years, and it has become part of his routine. He doesn't wait for inspiration to strike; instead, he sits down and writes, even if he doesn't feel like it. This dedication has helped him to build a strong writing muscle that allows him to churn out posts effortlessly.
Of course, there is Seth and everybody else! Work, travel, and other disruptions threw me off my routine this week.
Setbacks may be part of the process, but it's so frustrating!
But also revealing as I missed my little writing and morning meditation routine. In truth, that surprised me and it's a sign that something is changing in me.
So this morning I purposely set the alarm 90 minutes earlier, to make space sure this short-term disruption doesn't turn into a long-term slump. I made some space for myself before the chaos of the weekend and it felt good.
So.. taking a few days off from the routine may be beneficial after all. Just like taking days off from running helps with recovery and getting the mojo back.
