It’s all Linda’s and Amanda’s fault really. They said, “You really need to start a coaching blog, it’s time.”
“I don’t think so,” I said. The next day I mentioned their idea to my husband.
“That’s a great idea,” Kurt said. “Can I help?”
So I suppose it’s his fault too.
Here’s what was rocketing around in my mind:
There are already so many quality blogs out there. No one wants another one.
Who would read it?
What if it takes too much time?
What if I have nothing to say?
What if my friends do read it, but they don’t like it, but they say they like it because they are really kind people?
Then I read this Seth Godin quote, “The goal in blogging/business/inspiring non-fiction is to share a truth, or at least a truth as the writer sees it. To not just share it, but to spread it and to cause change to happen…In the words my late friend Isaac Asimov shared with Carl Sagan, ‘You are my idea of a good writer because you have an unmannered style, and when I read what you write, I hear you talking.'”
And I realized I have truth to share. I do want change to happen. I have an unmannered style that smart people have told me speaks to them. So I’ll try. If you like what you read, follow. If it triggers your thinking, comment. Let’s start a conversation about learning, coaching and life.
