It’s just like brushing my teeth. Disclaimer: I actually like brushing my teeth.
The brushing-the-teeth comparison doesn’t stop there because:
- I know it’s good for me.
- I’ll regret it if I don’t do it.
- You can’t brush twice the next day to make up.
- The pain of getting it done it is far, far greater than the pain of not doing it.
- No one cares but me.
- I actually enjoy brushing my teeth.
It’s just going to get done. It’s as simple as that. Sick, traveling, tired, kids biting my ankles, dog peeing on the carpet, or I-just-don’t-feel-like-it-today but … put it in front of me and it’ll be done. Today. Boom.
What that assembly line of determination translates into is 175+ posts on WordPress U. It’s been the focus of the past 100 posts and it’s paying off. Not all of them are award winning, but every single one is helpful in some way to someone.
In the past few weeks, I also went public with WPU in an entrepreneur mastermind group I’m a part of. It’s been an enormous help to better define my audience at WPU, strategize about the direction of the service, and help produce the next round of posts to best serve that audience.
