Professionals buy from other professionals. Amateurs ask friends for advice. – Seth Godin
How true. That’s why I hardly ask people for advice and even if I do, more often than not it’s bad advice. Books, especially those that have stood the test of time, are where I find the most invaluable pieces of wisdom.
My daily routine:
-wake up at 7
-daily dose of feedly (blogs that I follow)
-writing (I find that typing on my phone works better than at my keyboard)
-change my Daughter out of her nightclothes
-drive to work (bbc on the radio)
-reach office and start clearing my inbox etc
-lunch and some lunchtime writing
-back to work and meetings
-commute back home (podcast;right now it’s the moment with Brian Koppelman)
– Catch up with my Wife
-Relaxing with a book(Reading Seneca’s Essays now)
-Back to bed by about 11
Writing is not just having something to say. It also means believing that you have something to say.
I was using Jekyll and Github pages but decided to make the jump to WordPress.
- Maintaining the code for my old website was time consuming. I didn’t want to spend more time coding than blogging
- WordPress has more features. It allows comments, widgets, and various other useful plugins
- Less not more options in terms of customisation meant less headache making unimportant decisions over font size, margins etc
- I actually like writing on my phone as opposed to writing on my computer since it’s easy to reach
- Synchronisation with ia writer resulting in less “friction” and faster publishing
