For the first several years of blogging, I was posting three times per week. I had it on my schedule. Blogging that often was a priority. I was doing an experiment and wanted to see how frequent blogging could improve my Business’s Performance.
It was a priority. Each week it was posted on my schedule. Even blocked off with enough time to ensure I completed this priority.
When the experiment was completed, I didn’t put it on my schedule. Guess what happened? I focused on the other priorities and haven’t been as consistent at times. This isn’t how I want to show up so I had to make a change.
What did I do? I placed it back on my schedule.
Why? That’s where my commitments, promises, and priorities are recorded to keep me performing at a high level.
