I Don't Feel Like Writing this Blog Post Right Now

by | 0 comments

But I also don't give a shit about how I feel about it.

The problem the last two years with this blog (or rather, with me and blogging) is I tend to write when I feel like it.  Which, apparently, isn't very often.

But that's going to change – starting now.

Starting now, I'm going to publish a new blog post every Monday – whether I feel like it or not.

Why?

Cause that's the kind of habitual commitment successful creators do. And I want to be a successful creator too.

The opposite of writing or taking pictures or working out or being generally productive when you feel like it – is to do those things out of habit.

Habits get stuff done when the feeling of inspiration gets distracted by Facebook and other shiny objects.

One of the greatest gems about utilizing the power of habit is that it quiets the voices in your head that say things like “You're not good enough….you're not ready….this can wait until tomorrow.”

The habit gets you started. And once you've started it's so much easier to finish.

So there. I've started.

It's time to do the work.

See you next week.

Forget What's In the Bag, What IS the Bag?

Camera gear is a touchy subject. Google "Nikon vs Canon" and you get over 52,000,000 results. So I'm not going to even attempt to lay out the dozens of bag options, give a long list of features to compare and analyze until you're blue in the face. If...
