It is hard

Mar 30, 2017 · 1 min read

Writing every single day is really hard. And that is why I do it.

Well it is not the only reason that I do it, but approaching this as a challenge has been a great way for me to learn and grow.

I think finding challenges — like I have with writing — is really important. Something that you can take on on a regular basis.

Far too often, I feel, we trap ourselves in routines. Routines are good for a lot of things. But often times they do not put you in uncomfortable situations, on purpose.

Unless, however, your routine puts you in an uncomfortable situation.

And that is the irony of writing. It is a routine to the furthest extent — I do it every single morning and have not missed a day.

But it is never monotonous — it always pushes me.

Find opportunities that push you.
