Back-dating my posts

I am cheating on my blog—but this is what I learned from it.

Since July 13, I’ve been trying to post something daily. Nothing too long—about 250 words, more or less.

However, this past week, I focused on my coaching page and the Counios and Gane newsletter, so I let this work slide.

Eventually, I found the time, wrote a chunk of posts, and back-dated them.

At first, I felt guilty. I felt like I was cheating. But the more I did it, the less it bothered me.

When I considered it, I was still doing the work. I was filling the days and committing to the long-term goal of having 31 posts. Just not on the day.

This understanding was valuable.

Sometimes we focus so tightly on our journey that we lose sight of the actual goal. For me, filling in the dates—no matter when I did them—was the true purpose. That was what made all the difference.
