I survived Hurricane Irma but I made one mistake [2017-09-12]

I’m writing this to you on my lunch break at my day job office, because my apartment still doesn’t have power. The good news is, I survived Hurricane Irma. The bad news is, last week I promised you an update on all of my projects and I am unable to deliver.

I could blame the hurricane. I could say it’s because I was out of power, or that I had lots to do to prepare and recover from the hurricane.

I wouldn’t be lying that those things happened, but I would be lying if I used them as reasons I couldn’t write you a better newsletter than this.

The reason I didn’t have a good newsletter ready for you is because I didn’t write it ahead of time. Unless it’s a blog post I’ve been working on for a while, I write these newsletters usually a day or two before they go out. That’s a stupid way to do things, but it’s the habit I’m stuck in right now.

I used to write a lot ahead of time and schedule them out. Somewhere along the line, I lost that.

The moral of this story, the lesson here, is that we shouldn’t wait until the last minute to do things. Do as much ahead of time as you can and then there’s a consistency in both the quality and delivery of your work, plus there’s much less stress around it.

This week, I’m going to cut out some time to write the next 6 weeks worth of newsletters 🙂

Looking forward,

P.S. Okay for real this time, next week I should have an update on all of my projects, so stay tuned!
