Shipping Delays Turn Into Learnings For Success.

I have been participating in Ship30for30 since the start of January and have truly become addicted to the concept of shipping content daily.

However, I knew there would be a time where I eventually hit that moment where I would not ship.

My biggest fear is that I would hit that day, then that day would turn into multiple days, cascading into my previous habit of never shipping.

To my surprise, the level of regret and sheer dissatisfaction from not shipping surprised me.

Not shipping once was a blessing in disguise, and I finally have identified the actual value and growth from Ship30for30 from this experience.

I wanted to outline some of the critical benefits of shipping daily and the mental benefits of writing daily.

(1/4): Writing has become my source of direction.

I have enjoyed writing daily so much that it has become part of my process for starting the days.

I no longer think about what needs to be accomplished, and I focus on the day’s themes and use that to channel content creation.

(2/4): Accountability to myself

One of the main things I struggled with was being a man of many ideas but little documentation.

I have comprehensively documented many of the things I have used with clients and colleagues as topics. This helps to define those perspectives and beliefs in a sharable scalable way.

(3/4): Confidence Earn

Writing consistently with purpose is a significant confidence builder, and I feel that I can take on any topic and approach it from the practitioner and learner perspective to help others.

I love the thought of helping those around me with my content, as I feel that content is nothing more than the seeds we leave behind for others to find.

(4/4): Passion Development

I have always struggled with developing passions, and I often consider myself an empath that takes on the passions of those around me.

Throughout the writing process, I have identified that I am passionate about serving others with my perspective.

Developing habits is something that I love to do.

I love to push the boundaries, and I have always felt that habit and discipline development is one of the only authentic ways to change your inner self in a truly identifiable way.

Writing every day helps you manifest those changes faster than ever while also providing the seeds for others to do the same.
