For the first 350 days of Von Wong Daily, I would write first thing in the morning.
It felt like the most obvious time to write – because calls, meetings, and activities would stream in fast and furious the rest of the day.
I would wake up two hours before my first meeting and painfully squeeze out a paragraph before rushing off to my day.
For the last ten days, I’ve been trying a strategy of ease – writing only when an insight felt ready – or if the end of the day had arrived.
Rather than force out a piece of writing, I let it percolate in my subconscious – distributing what once was 2 hours of intense stress over a 16-hour or so waking period.
I’m not entirely sure if the quality of the writing has improved, but the days have absolutely felt more balanced.
How might you better play with ease in your life?
