On February, my second month on the Praxis program, I should’ve written and published a blog post every day for 30 days. I wrote every day, but only published 20 pieces. I didn’t like most of what I wrote: my tone, my messages, the overall end products.
After that month, I kept writing without much consistency. And most of my notes ended up on my private notebook on Evernote, not on my blog.
Now I know I want to document what I’m living, doing, learning, experiencing… And at the same time that I’m unsatisfied with what I write, I know I shouldn’t keep it private.
I’m committing to publishing 3 long-form posts per week, until the end of the year. At least one of the posts will be posted on this blog. According to the topics, the other two will be on one of these platforms: my company’s blog, my LinkedIn, Quora, or Medium.
AND HOW THAT CHANGES HOW I WRITE
I often write to try to understand what I’m thinking, to introspect, or to bring more clarity about my next steps. And although it brings me some interesting ideas, I usually don’t arrive at conclusions. That’s why I end up not publishing it.
Some friends helped me see that this is okay. I need to publish something, not to teach something. Opinions and ideas are always evolving. We’re wrong most of the times anyway.
So these posts will frequently be open-ended, stories or thoughts in development, instead of conclusions.
The value you get out of reading these posts is the same I get from writing them: to dive deeper into opinions and ideas. To question yourself. To exercise intellectual integrity. To drive an expansion of your consciousness.
And if no one reads it, that’s okay too. I’m gaining all this and documenting my evolution.
