After writing a dozen or so blog posts starting from 2008, on January 23, 2011 I wrote a post, Why I avoid proprietary software. I hadn’t posted the day before, but the next day I wrote Crowding out beats letting go. And I kept posting without missing a day until today, ten years later.
As my friend who set up my WordPress blog said, “If you miss one day you can miss two. If you miss two, it’s all over.” So began my first sidcha, followed by burpees, which evolved into a burpee-based calisthenics routine, cold showers, picking up litter, lately singing, and more. Here’s my workshop on starting your sidcha: Life-Changing Habits Even (Especially) Under Lock-Down.
WordPress says I’ve posted 4,152 posts. In the meantime I’ve become a bestselling author of 2 published books, two self-published books, a columnist in Psychology Today, Inc, and Thrive Global, and a speaker at three TEDx events, and top universities and organizations including Harvard, Princeton, MIT, West Point, BCG, Google, IBM, and many other places.
I’m working on my next book, on sustainability leadership.
