“When you walk across the fields with your mind pure and holy, then from all the stones, and all growing things, and all animals, the sparks of their soul come out and cling to you, and then they are purified and become a holy fire in you.” -ancient Hasidic saying
Committing to writing a daily blog nearly three years ago (and now 723 posts later) has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Can’t thank my virtual mentor Seth Godin enough for encouraging this practice and I highly recommend it to any of you who are thinking about it.
One thing I love is receiving recommendations for books, articles, films, podcasts, etc…with a note saying something like “thought you could use this for your blog.” I learn and grow so much from these recommendations so thank you, THANK YOU, and please keep sending!
It got me thinking…when you’re passionate and committed to something and you let people know about it, and they see your passion and commitment in action, all kinds of amazing things happen. Things you could never plan for or expect. It’s one reason I recommend choosing and committing to a yearly “anchor project.” I believe that deep down we all want to help someone who’s all-in. I know I do when I see it. It lights me up.
Decide. Commit. Start. Iterate. Keep it rolling.
