New Year’s Resolution 2010: Blog More & Eat Less.


2009 was a funny year for me, in many ways it was my best year yet, but one thing that really took a back seat was my blogging.

I stopped blogging so much because of an epiphany that the world already has an abundance of ideas, what was missing was ideas that lead to action, and I decided to spend more time on the latter than broadcasting the prior.

But when it comes down to it, what is the most tangible benefit of writing?  Is it to inform, to change minds?

The inescapable benefit is that writing –and more importantly blogging– is to force yourself to take ephemeral thoughts and ideas that reside in your mind and crystallize them on the page/screen.  Your ideas become more concrete, and you end up convincing yourself (or not) of the strength of your ideas, and learn more about yourself.  When you can build a strong belief in your ideas, that becomes a major contributor to action.

Blogging is like a debate with yourself, with an audience that forces you to play fair.  🙂

Happy 2010 everyone!
