I have always had what I would describe as some version of beginner’s luck. Not in everything, but in enough things to notice a trend.
The first time I do something, it is really good! But then when I do things the second time around, the results aren’t quite like the first.
This happens constantly with cooking or baking, playing games, creating, and so on.
As I am embarking on this second year of daily blogging, I’m naturally concerned that I’m going to fail – either I’ll get bored and stop or my writing will somehow take a nosedive.
I have to remind myself, just because it feels like “been there done that” doesn’t mean it’s actually true. Things happen a second, third, tenth, hundredth time all the time. Every Monday is the start of a week, and I’m not over here giving up because I’m clocking in yet another week of my life.
Time is a constant – there is no stopping it. What if I were to approach my daily blogging that way? Seth Godin says he blogs everyday because it is a new day. That is definitely a great way to see it.
