It happens way less than it used to, but every once in a while i have to pause and take stock of the progress that’s accumulated over the past seven-plus years.
Today is one of those rare days.
If you ask me right now how many blog posts i have written, i’ll say, “Not sure.”
So, to answer that…
7 years x 365 days = 2,555 days
2 leap years add 2 days = 2,557 days
April – June 2016 add 91 days = 2,648 days
July 1 – July 8, 2016 (today) add 8 days = 2,656 days
2,656 days x 5 blogs per day = 13, 280 blog posts

Bonus: Include the 90-day surplus of posts waiting to be published, add 450 posts…
13,280 + 450 = 13,730 posts written since April Fools Day 2009.
Prior to April 1, 2009, i had never written more than two consecutive days and had never written five posts in a single day.
That was a long winded way to ask you this:
What are you capable of doing that seems impossible?
But if you only worried about one day at a time, you could do something extraordinary?
Final thought, the other thing i began on April 1, 2009 was to begin each morning on bended knees and say three simple prayers…2,656 days in a row.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
