I watched an online video interview of Seth Godin recently. The interviewer asked him why he blogs daily. His response surprised me. He said that he blogs daily so that he is forced to really be present in his day. He is always looking for an insight or an interesting idea that he can write about. The discipline of daily writing forces him to pay attention. It may also force him to be selective about how he spends his time. “I’d write every day even if no one read the blog.”
I now have one more reason to write consistently.
