Trying something new. Trying it now. Trying it every day.

I’ve been following the work of Jonathan Stark for some time now, and one recurring theme in his works that overlaps with and clarifies the works of others that I value is this: it’s easier to do something every day than any other cadence.

Running once a week is harder than running every day. Writing once a week is harder than writing every day. Publishing once a week is harder than publishing every day.

You get me.

The personal challenge I run into with this is that my weekend schedule can be pretty out of control; over the last couple years, I’ve effectively surrendered it to reacting to child-rearing situations. That was necessary, for a while. It’s not, at this point, but the habits and tendencies and mindsets are strong.

As a simple first step, I’m going to write a post here every day for the rest of this month. I started a few days ago over in the Blog section, in fact, and intend to continue exactly there.

The rest of that stuff in life?

Oh, the other stuff is good. It’s great. My wife’s practice is taking off, to the point where she’ll soon be profitable, and more importantly back to doing work that she loves & that does good for the world. My girls are growing every day and in the midst of an especially adorable, cute phase. I don’t understand at all the framing of “terrible twos” and “threenagers”. This part where their personalities develop and they’ve got some spunk and resistance and opinions is awesome. And it’s way easier than taking care of (adorable, but high-needs) vulnerable infants.

I love this part! More, please.

Did that make your day a little better?
