Just Frickin’ Start!

self pep talk

Oh my gosh, girl (talking to myself here), just frickin’ start this! I remember in the “Design Your Future” Episode from the ChooseFI podcast that the reason some lady had published a *bleeping* book was because she persisted despite the imperfections in her content. So here I am. Not really knowing exactly what I want to do. But I want to start something. I don’t wanna just wait around and let life happen to me. I’m gonna frickin’ start.

Why i’m doing this

I’m a person who needs to begin with purpose- a strong why- so I can weather the unmotivated days. So I thought long and hard about my why for this blog. And to sum it up: I want to use my experience and insights to help people feel less alone: I want my content to help people.

Recently I picked up another knowledge nugget from listening to the ChooseFI podcast. I learned about the rule of three’s for when pursuing a side project:

ONE: ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT IT?

My answer: yes, I’m passionate about sharing my thoughts, experiences and lessons. 

TWO: WHAT SKILLS ARE YOU LEARNING BY PURSUING THIS SIDE PROJECT?

My answer:

  1. Improve writing skills
  2. Website building skills
  3. Website managing skills
  4. Potential affiliate marketing and online business skills
  5. Online etiquette skills 

THREE: HOW WILL YOUR PROJECT HELP OTHER PEOPLE?

My answer: I want to use my experiences, feelings and insights to help other people feel less alone. Even if it’s just one person. I also want to better understand, process and organize my emotions and experience via writing them down. 

how i’m gonna this

I’m gonna make writing into a habit by building it into my weekly routine:

  1. Write for 25 minutes first thing in the morning at 6:30AM
  2. Edit an article during a 25 min work session after my morning work out
  3. Post a blog article of a minimum 100 words every Sunday

Honestly, I have no idea if my blog will reach an audience- heck it took some really awesome bloggers 1-2 years to grow their site. Right now, I just want this blog to help me and help others at the same time✨

Aight,

Peace!
