A drip has given me inspiration today! Dripping your work, as Seth Godin talks about.
The drip approach to getting your work done looks like this. Every day a little bit more. Not one big bucket full at a time, but a small amount of work on a very consistent basis. You will have a bucket full in no time.
It never feels like much in the moment, but each drop adds to the bucket.
I know the drip method works. I use it every day. I write, a lot. I drip my thoughts onto yellow legal pads, onto post it notes, into journals, and into this blog.
I, along with Michael, have been dripping on this site for the past year and two months. Constant, consistent. The amount of content we now have is invaluable. More than a books worth! All because of dripping.
The neat part about dripping our work is every post does not carry the weight it would if we only wrote once a month. Dripping seems to promote more dripping. It opens the floodgates, if you will.
The more I drip, the more I have to drip! The more I write, the more I want to and need to write. Now, I can’t stop dripping! My work is expanding and I am loving it!
Constant, consistent work pays off. Start dripping.
