I like Challenges! On Saturday I decided to write one post a day for the next 90 days.
My workdays are Monday through Friday, but I often work during the weekend, too. I don’t want to push too much and want to have fun while building this Blog, so it should be at least 5 posts per week.
Today, I was wondering how many posts I wrote and posted in the past few days. I had no idea. Perhaps it was 3, 4 or 5 in the row. I asked myself how will I know when I get there.
What I like to do is to visualize my progress. So, I took some time off and created a super simple tracking tool – a posting calendar.
I searched for a blank paper, used markers and created 90 checkboxes. Each checkbox contains the box number and empty place for a check mark.
I could use a blank monthly calendar instead, but I think I'm more focused and playful when I create something simple myself.
When I write and publish a new blog post on this website, I then put a green check mark there. So, today I know I already published 4 new posts in the last few days.
If you are at least a little like me, you might want to do the same. Steal my idea and track your progress day by day. In no time, you realize that you wrote those 30, 60, 90, 120 or 365 posts.
I help people become the best version of themselves so they can become happier, more successful and live the life of their dreams.
