I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

One thing about build­ing dis­cip­line, par­tic­u­larly in the area of post­ing to a blog each day, is the need for ideas. There’s a sim­il­ar­ity between ideas and dis­cip­line, in that the more you exer­cise those muscles the stronger they become.

  1. @amit and @philbowell – reminds me of wise words from my Mom many years ago … (when the Roy­al Mail was the only writ­ten mes­sage deliv­ery sys­tem in the UK ….)
    Mom: “Remem­ber … don’t for­get to write to me at least once a week – even bet­ter – every day.”
    Me: “Every day! There wont be enough to say every day!”
    Mom: “You will find that the more you write the more you will have to say, because then everything is import­ant. If you only write once a month, there will be noth­ing import­ant enough to write about.”

  2. @JohnPhilpin Sage advice from your moth­er I remem­ber back when I was in col­lege, sev­er­al friends and I would email back and forth every day or so—maybe short, but always some­thing to talk about. These days, it’s far few­er friends and only once or twice a year, and some­times it’s hard to think of things to write, because only the biggest events stick out at that distance.
