Two thoughts why it’s hard, at times, to create.
I’m not a scientist. I haven’t done any studies. This is just me and my thoughts.
A few months back as I was in the middle of a 6x per week weight training regimen, there were literally 3 days in a row where this weird thing happened.
I’m a month in on this 100 day challenge experiment where I’m writing a blog post every day for 100 days. (Repetative much?)
One of the biggest take aways so far is just how important it is to write stuff down. In the last week alone I’ve found myself running for my notebook or reaching for my phone a number of times to get an idea down on paper.

You can see what’s coming, right?
This popular mantra from Tony Robbins is an effective way to approach getting things done. But there’s a flip side.
Why blog? Why write at all? What’s the point?
We spent New Years weekend down in San Diego this year, which happens to be where my trainer/nutritionist of the last 5 months lives and works.
