Writing posts for the blog — one of my favorite things to do — often gets bumped to the bottom of the to-do list. “It doesn’t need to happen to get the company through to the next day, week or month,” I think; “it’s fun, so it doesn’t seem like work”; “who reads these posts, anyway”; “I don’t have anything interesting to say today”; and on and on.
