Choose Momentum Over Outcome (When You’re Stuck)

Oct 14, 2020

The amount I have been writing has dramatically increased because of 2 reasons:

1 – getting this laptop.

It’s probably worse than my last one honesty. In this picture it’s sitting next to my main computer that, from a hardware perspective blows it out of the water.

Yet, I prefer the the technically weaker laptop simply for the typing experience, flexibility of where I write, and the intentionally simplified function.

After you have the basis of “being able to write at all,” (any computer regardless of setup) then I can focus on improving the writing experience (laptop).

But sometimes it takes just s simple tweak to get into a better flow (new pen, new laptop, turning the desk around, getting accountability buddy, writing something different, etc).

2 – NonZeroDays. (No “zero days.”)

Heard about this on reddit maybe 2 weeks ago and is my newest implementation focus.

At least 1 pushup to qualify for exercise for the day = more pushups and overall exercise done in 2 weeks than all of last year combined (not including dance 😏).
Just 1 page of a book.
1 minute of meditation.
1(hundred) words written.
1 shared content. (Guess what my post is today?)

In the beginning the goal is not a perfect or grandiose system or outcome.

It’s just ONE of something. As simple as can be.

To
Not
Have
A
Zero
Day.

Aiming for MOMENTUM, not outcome.

Overwhelmed? Attend to Your Physical Environment

Overwhelmed? Attend to Your Physical Environment

When overwhelmed, it manifests in my physical environment as “projects” and “notes” scattered about. Some time to attend to them goes a long way in creating “space” for productivity and creativity to emerge.
