I have been having a hard time writing this post as I do not have any inspiration on what to write. There is a few topics that interest me at the time like financial freedom, artificial intelligence, and effective altruism, just to name a few. However, I was stuck when I started to write about it.
If this had happened to me a few weeks ago, I would have already stopped writing completely for the day. Why should I push myself to write if I have no inspiration at all?
Lately I have been developing a new habit to write and post everyday. This has become my daily routine for the last two weeks. I am on a streak!
As a result, this regimen has helped me to finish writing this post today. Seth Godin says in his latest book The Practice,
“Creativity is an action, not a feeling. Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”
Maybe I do not need to rely on inspirations to come, I just need to sit down and do the work.
