Grinding on the daily makes grinding on the daily easier

The daily grind gets easier with a daily grind. This Sunday will mark 1000 blog posts on this blog. 1000. Four figures. No one can take that away from you. Having done this, I would definitely encourage anyone to pick up a daily blogging or writing habit, even if you use a pseudonym or don’t push publish. There are of course advantages such as developing your writing skills, but the one area I think we can most benefit from grinding something out daily is in the discipline side of things.

Think about this for more than a second. This means that on both great days, and days I’d definitely rather forget (of which there have been a few), I have pumped out a blog piece. Now, it may not be the best blog piece, but at least it is something. Keeping to a consistent schedule like this definitely helps keep your mind in check, and also helps you believe that you can sustain a daily habit if you wish to. This in turn makes it easier to go through the daily grind.

So, I would definitely encourage getting your own domain and using a blogging service, personally I would recommend Medium.com, but of course you don’t have to. What matters is that you pump something out on the daily. I also think the same applies to something else creative, like a photo a day, or something similar. Doing so will definitely make the rest of your day, and your days, better.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
