I have been thinking more and more about my writing.
It has been over a year now of writing every single day — and I have learned an incredible amount. There is a direct correlation between how well I think and how often I write. The more I write, the better.
I do not want to stop writing. In fact, I want to write faster and more than I do now.
But I have identified a few issues with the direction of my writing and my thoughts.
- Writing every single day on my personal blog with no direction does not provide that much value for anyone but myself.
- Coming up with topics that are interesting to think about (and not repetitive) is becoming increasingly challenging. I am not afraid of that challenge. In fact, I have been able to overcome that challenge every single morning for the past year. What am I afraid of is the following.
- My content is becoming too generic. Not actionable enough. And I think that is true because I am taking a vague approach to topics and not writing about a niche.
- The style/design of my blog could be better.
This is exactly what is happening (I think). I want to update my blog, and in doing so, I think I am going to be making some far bigger changes.
And I think I want to *update* my goal because I think it is time for a new / more creative challenge. Writing will still be involved. There is still so much to learn. But I think that these “thought” leader, daily, pieces are becoming too saturated.
Big things coming! That’s a promise. But good things also take time.
