How An Online Cohort-Based Writing Program Killed My Epic Procrastination Tendency

Two months ago, I started writing on the interwebs.

I’m not sure where the whole writing thing is going, but it’s been fun.

It’s been fun getting to know a bunch of awesome people I would have otherwise likely never known.

It’s been fun developing a habit that produces such a good return on the time investment.

I have made $0.00 from writing in my life but writing my thoughts every day makes my life richer.

I am clearer about what I am doing and how I spend my time. This fact alone is priceless.

It’s the ultimate cliché but showing up every day has a power in and of itself. If you respect yourself at all, allocating energy and thought to anything on a daily basis is going to naturally sharpen your process.

Surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are eager to improve their skills, share knowledge and deliver honest feedback can be a game changer. Dickie Bush is right, if you want to get better quickly, shorten your feedback loops.

Lastly, I’ve been reminded of the rapidly compounding power of daily improvement. I’ve watched a few dozen people do it on Twitter over the last 2 months. It’s been amazing and inspiring to see.

The reason this writing program has made me better at everything is because it has dispelled every excuse for not taking action.

If there is something in your life you think is important to start, do it now. You have no idea what else will fall into place when you start chasing the things that actually matter to you. Do it now.
