    Why Most People Will Remain in Mediocrity

    Most people will never be truly successful. The pull towards mediocrity is too strong. As David Schwartz once penned, “All around you is an environment that is trying to pull you down to Second-Class Street.” Most people will never escape the pull. Much of the thinking around us is small-minded. Most people are overly concerned with “beating the other guy,” usually through manipulation and politics. As a result, they’re left fighting for scraps with the other 99%. It doesn’t have to be this way.

    I’ve written one blog post every day for the past 2 years. Here’s how I did it.

    I’m really bad at showing up. Most of the time I don’t feel like showing up. Still I somehow managed to show up each and every day for more than two years. In October 2015 I decided to write and publish one article on my blog every single day. Now fast forward two years I’m still writing one article every single day… I never thought something like this would be possible. Or that I’d have the discipline to do something like this.

    Why speed is the skill I’m most dedicated to improving

    Nathan was a guy at school who always finished his homework hours before everyone else. I went to an English boarding school, and they’d put twelve boys in the same room to do homework (prep) every evening. Nathan would race through his work so that he had time to read his beloved novels. I’d look over at him nose-deep in the latest Sebastian Faulks (no joke, we were thirteen), while I fumed, toiling over my essay. Surely Nathan had poor results, because he was a ‘rusher,’ right?

    Why I Believe Writer’s Block is a Lie — 7 Ways You Can Blast Past it Forever

    Have you suffered from writer’s block? Have you ever felt your creative well had run so dry that even weeds couldn’t grow there? If you’ve ever thought you’d never have another idea even if someone gave you a list of them, take heart. The truth is we’ve all felt this way from time to time. “But wait,” you say. “You just told me in that headline that you don’t believe Writer’s Block exists!” I did, indeed. Now I’ll tell you why.

    How to Face and Release the Fear of Not Being Heard

    One common stumbling block trips up all bloggers at one time during their careers. Waste-of-time-itis. During particularly lean days when nobody seems to read your blog you probably want to quit. Even worse? You fear that nobody will ever read your blog. You are wasting your time, blogging in a cyber cave. If nobody is listening now you are terrified that nobody will ever listen.

    Ask the blogger: how did you get so many followers?

    I went out on a limb and contacted some of my greatest blogging idols to see if a few of them might like to lend us some of their wisdom in response to the one question we’re all thinking about: how the hell did you get so many followers?

    GoDaddy was super expensive and slow, once you add up all of the things they don't throw in complimentary.

    BlueHost has terribly slow customer service, but you rarely need it.

    There's a technique where you draw a big circle on the page, put your main topic into that circle. Create circles around this main idea and fill in ideas that you’re going to develop and link. It just loosens the mind up. Pretty helpful -- at least for me.

    The long read: The oh-so-Instagrammable food movement has been thoroughly debunked – but it shows no signs of going away. The real question is why we were so desperate to believe it
