The other week, on a whim, I got myself a spot in Seth Godin’s The Creative’s Workshop.

It’s not as if I have plenty of time on my hands… well. That’s a bit of a lie, I do. 24 hours per day to be precise, just like everyone else, but what I meant was that it’s not as if there is a lot of unclaimed time within those allotted daily 24 hours. And it’s not looking better anytime soon…
And it’s not as if I need the challenge to be able to live up to whatever runstreak-challenge there is out there, because I know I excel at that.
And it’s not as if I am struggling with what it is I want to do. I do know. I just don’t do it.

Starting today, the workshop features a dailies challenge, asking me to do this:
Not the private Morning Pages that are an essential part of the day for many creators, but a semi-public daily post to create the habit of shipping.

If you’re a writer, share some writing. If you’re a songwriter, share a lyric. If you’re working on becoming a public speaker, share a video. If you’re working in a different medium, share that here.

Every day. Short is fine. Rough is fine. Every day.

Don’t break your streak.

We are set to start the Dailies today, even though some people in the workshop have already kick-started it a couple of days early.
I didn’t, as I was pondering what it was I wanted to do with my dailies. So this morning, when I awoke, I realized what it is I want to use my 100 dailies for. This:

I will not post my dailies here on the blog. (I think.) This is a one-off. (Possibly. Or not?)
But now you know. Now I know you know. And now I know that I am dedicating time and effort to developing #tankespjärn.

To write about it.
To get clear on what it is, what I want to do with it, how I want to do that, what my timeframe is, who my target audience is, the size of my minimum viable audience, and, most likely, a heck of a lot of other questions that I don’t even know now.

    Men hallåååååå, så jäkla bra!

    Jag vill också 🙂 Men förstår också din tvekan över vad du vill när det gäller just det här. Den kände jag direkt, efter att först ha varit tvärsäker på att jag vet vad jag vill …

    Vilken sanslöst härlig utmaning, en semi-public daily. Love it. Tror bestämt att jag vill copypejsta.


    ps. hade älskat att få läsa dina semipublic dailies på bloggen …

      Hmmmm… du kanske ska joina mig i workshopen? 😉

      Kan lätt säga att jag har fått en massa energi redan av att haka på The Creative’s workshop – bara ATT faktiskt skänka en medveten, utforskande, huppeguppstäcksfärdig, helt-utan-krav-tanke åt #tankespjärn varje dag… gör skillad. Ger energi!
