Had a great meeting with an old friend (who’ll now be working with me as a coachee) last evening. Heard some great insights! My pocket notebook (a brand new one that I pulled out Day before yesterday) was almost half full!
During our conversation we touched on journaling and the impact blogging daily has had on me. He looked surprised when I mentioned blogging. He knows I’m busy and have a tight schedule most of the days. He thought out loud, “how the heck are you able to post a blog everyday despite your schedule?”
And for the first time in many years I have on the other side of the fence. Someone who has done it and will continue to do it. A practitioner than a theorist.
My answer: I observe and then document. Or just document. My biggest why is that I want to be able to reflect back on the path that I’ve treaded on the way to becoming who I will be 10, 20, 30, 40 years from now. And I want to be able to share this body of work/knowledge with everyone who wants to learn how a “nobody” with humble beginnings made it in life.
The silence that ensued was deafening. All I heard was, “wow, Sunil! I never thought of it that way. Good luck! And keep doing what you’re doing. I sure feel inspired!”
Not boasting, that’s not my style. But I wanted to share my thoughts on how simple (not easy) it can be to start climbing a summit. One step at a time.
I might not ever say that “I love blogging.” But I sure love having written thing that’s worth sharing. And most importantly, I love to observe and document my thoughts. Everything in between is a process.
