I wrote a post almost one year ago about how I stopped writing consistently. Here I am almost one year later with a similar post for the same reason. I stopped writing consistently. I think consistent writing is very important, therapeutic and increases productivity.
Again as before, I didn’t stop because I was not dedicated. In that year I have had success building a productized services company while consulting – albeit at a reduced capacity. I also trained for and completed the 2017 United States Marine Corp Marathon. This did cut into some of the time I previously had set aside for writing but that is no excuse.
There have been some new challenges. For example, because the productized business has scaled, I am now hiring and delegating management task which is something new for me and a bit different than delegating non-management repetitive tasks. Once again, this did cut into some of the time I previously had set aside for writing but that is no excuse.
I think a part of the challenge that I find now is pivoting and reorganizing my day so that I have time to write. I decided to post this to break out of the writing slump by writing something. This time I expect to do more consistent writing.
