This post marks the 1-year anniversary of this blog. What started as a deviant thought has grown into a blog with many readers who (somehow) seem to care what a random 20-something has to say.

So firstly, thank you - for following and reading my posts, for engaging with the stuff I write, for commenting back with your own thoughts. I receive lots of comments from readers telling that they look forward to the new post each week, which is a pretty solid dose of motivation to keep going with this.

In an ideal world of course, we wouldn’t need to rely on motivation to get stuff done, but it’s quite nice to be genuinely motivated to do something and not have to consistently rely on willpower and discipline. So again - thank you for being so kind in your comments. That’s a big part of what makes it fun to do each week 😁

Instead of trying to come up with something new for the week, I’m going to link to a few older posts that seem to have resonated with readers. You might like to check them out if you’ve got time you feel like making time.

  1. Time Management
  2. A post about consistency contrasted with a post about taking a break
  3. The Parable of the Pottery Class and The Parable of the Mexican Fisherman
  4. Be content to be thought foolish
  5. Journey before Destination
