Today represents 199 days in a row of writing a daily blog. One of the most important things I’m learning on this journey is the art of loving bad ideas.

Most days I wake up and I have no idea what to write about. Some days I don’t come up with something until very late and don’t publish anything until 11:59pm.

Struggling to come up with a topic to write about is mentally frustrating. However, this gets even more frustrating on days after I actually write something that people really like and connect with. I tend to have the worst ideas on those days.

This is why I am starting to love those bad ideas. I now know that without bad ideas you can’t have good ideas. Furthermore, fighting through the days to write even when my ideas suck and I’m afraid I can’t follow-up on a previous success is teaching me two valuable lessons:

  1. You can’t have writers block when you have a deadline you refuse to miss
  2. Being successful at something does not reduce the fear of failure, it increases it. However, it also increases your courage to face it.
