It’s sites like ZenHabits.net
It’s positive and cheerful too, but don’t let that get you down.
There’s a marvelous post over there right now by Leo, titled Success Isn’t a Competition: Boosting Others Helps You in the Long Run. It’s title pretty much sums up the post. There’s some good examples of the idea applied to blogging, but the idea lends itself well to other areas of life. I’d argue that competition is healthy to a point, but there’s a lot of truth to what Leo says.
Leo’s also starting a “Helping Hand” program, and reaching out to offer support to other bloggers in any way he can. That’s great, and I wish him the best. He’s already helping me by blogging useful advice. I’m helping him in return by telling all three of my blog readers what a great site ZenHabits is. It’s the least I can do.
Ya’all really ought to read it. Leo’s got a lot of useful wisdom to share.
Don’t pass up on zenhabits.net! It’d be like starting every sentence of your blog post with a contraction.
That’d be lame.
