I am here now [25 minutes, 6 seconds]


Homework Assignment:

Step 1. Keep doing your homework

Those little tiny writings are research.

I do that research by those few words. Day after day!

I’ve found that I discover my own patterns from this research.

In fact, I’ve discovered inspiration to be consistent and persistent arises from the insights gained from looking back on the evidence of that very minute of my days.

Research takes effort over time.

I encourage you to pour yourself into that daily minute.

Dare to ask yourself those questions.

Be concise. Most days you’ll have 25 words or less.

Some days, you may just have 2 words.

Those 2 words might give you the insight that changes your life forever.

Your life is worth that minute to write those 2 words, isn’t it?
