You care about your words and ideas. I care about them, too.
Let’s work together.
I’m a road tripper by nature, and this month I get a chance to fully indulge that part of my personality. Today I’m hitting the road with a group of people I barely know, and we’re driving from Chicago, IL to Austin, TX to take part in the mayhem that is SXSW. We’ll be filming our adventures and sharing them on our blog, our Twitter feed, and elsewhere. If you’d prefer not to be inundated with everything we share, you can just follow my Twitter account or talk with me on App.net.
In fact, if you’d like to participate in the journey—even if you can’t leave your work and family behind for 10 days—I’ve got the perfect opportunity for you!
Introducing: Vintage Tweets.
Vintage Tweets are the offline equivalent to standard Twitter updates. Instead of receiving your tweet on your computer or mobile device, my Vintage Tweets will arrive at your door! This brand new social expression is sure to bring a smile to your face and a spring to your step as you imagine yourself visiting all the cities I visit with the RVSX crew.
All you have to do to receive your FREE Vintage Tweet is fill out the form below. Just choose a city you wish you could visit and I’ll send your Vintage Tweet from that city as I pass through.
While Vintage Tweets do not support video or music, each and every one includes a beautiful photograph, representative of your chosen city. Sign up today!
Note: Limit one Vintage Tweet per person. Also, this offer only applies to those living in the United States. Sorry!
Patrick Rhone is a good friend of mine and he just shared one of his 2013 Intentions. I’d like to offer him some encouragement.
As you begin a new year and set your mind to improving yourself by writing every day, keep in mind that you’re on a journey. There isn’t a single destination to signal you have arrived. Publishing a new piece each day isn’t an end, but it’s simply a path, maybe even just a small part of your path. Even if you don’t publish one day or one week or one month, you’re still traveling on the path in front of you. Choosing to write every day is a decision to set yourself in motion instead of staying still. An object in motion can change direction more easily than one at rest.
You will very likely miss a day. At the very least you’ll be tempted to skip one. Facing the choice to write or not to write is still a victory in itself. That struggle over whether or not to write, that twinge of guilt when you skip a day, those are both signs that you’re alive and moving forward. When you let out that sigh, confessing your choice to not write, realize that you made the choice and that’s good. Setting your pen aside for one day is a decision that you made and not something that was done to you or against your will.
A single paragraph can shake the world. President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address contained fewer than 270 words. If I visit a friend’s site, and their post for the day only said, “I laughed,” I’d smile and be glad for them. Wouldn’t you?
Finally, you have nothing to prove. Look around at your beautiful daughter, your loving wife, the business you’ve built, and the books you’ve written and realize you have done great things. The blog post you’re unsure about is just one more entry in an already impressive CV. It won’t harm you because it doesn’t have power over you. It will only be what you make it to be. Make it to be honest, and you won’t go wrong.
