When I was in 7th grade, I played basketball. Well, I was on a team that played basketball. I didn't get much playing time, but I showed up to practices and did what I could. Our coach was a bit eccentric, and developed an offense he called K.I.S.S. Yep, Keep It Simple Stupid.
I've heard the acronym used several other times since then in business and in life, but I've never chosen to really follow it. Until right now.
My new plan is to just keep this as simple as possible. I learned that hard way during my last streak that blogging everyday was just not my thing, but I still tried to do it. And tried. And tried. And tried. It just didn't work for me.
So my solution? DON'T DO IT EVERYDAY. I'll simplify things and update at least once a week. In terms of running, late night runs have caused problems for me. The KISS solution? DON'T RUN AT NIGHT, especially not outside for every run like the last streak.
Here are my 3 guidelines:
1. Run in the morning whenever possible. I start tomorrow at 6 AM!
2. Running on a treadmill is ok!
3. Blog about the running and causes at least once a week, but not every day.
And have fun.
