Just Notch Something Off Today

One thing done is better than ten things planned.

Yeah, if you’re building something bigger than daily survival, you’ll need to dream and plan.  But if you spend an entire day planning without doing or delivering anything, you’re going backwards while you plan your masterful forward attack.

Even if you plan 99% of the day, spend 1% of it doing something.  Finishing something.

That’s what I love about daily blogging.  Even on management/planning/ideas/analysis heavy days, if I literally move nothing from the “working on” to the “done” column, I will at least complete and publish one blog post.  Habituating and getting addicted to the feeling of done makes me better, regardless of what it is I’m doing.  Done spreads like a virus.

Get something done today.  Let the feeling infect you.
