Things I Don’t Do: Pace Myself

As I was walking this morning I thought about my pace. Was I going too fast? Too slow? Was this 1/2-hour walk really worth my time? You’re not pushing yourself, Don! So then I jogged for about 1/4-mile until I got out-of-breath and stopped. I…

Things I Don’t Do: Write What I Know

Lately, this blog is “trying too hard.” What happens is, I read six Seth Godin books in a row, I spend hours traveling around in a rental car and listening to Seth Godin books on CD, and suddenly I think, hey, I’m going to…

Things I Don’t Do: Write Enough

Good blog entries have beginnings, middles, and endings. They also have a point. This blog entry has a “middle” and no point. Enjoy. If you’d asked me at the beginning of 2012, “hey, Don, what will you be doing in 2013?” I would’ve said,…

Things I Don’t Do: I Don’t Have a Niche.

Sometimes I wonder why this blog doesn’t have 10,000 readers and why I’m not already a highly sought after writer, speaker, and humorist. It’s either (a) I rarely post entries, (b) most people don’t want to read about “Don Kowalewski” and his rambling thoughts,…

Things I Don’t Do: Need to Become ‘Things I Do’

The categories on this blog are as random as the posts and the fleeting thoughts in my head. Too often, a fleeting thought becomes a fleeting action-item which goes onto my to-do list, and then somewhere along the line, it drops off the to-do…

Things I Don’t Do: Write Enough; Live Enough; Be Bold Enough; Be Brave Enough

I have 4 writing clients, I’m contracted to ghost-write a book (I wish I could tell you about it but, well, “ghost-writers” can’t share that stuff), and I’m writing another guy’s memoir. I met with a guy on Thursday who runs two really great…

Things I Don’t Do: Exercise; Watch Movies

Can you believe it’s been nearly 4 entire months since I jogged, ran, climbed stairs, rode a bike, lifted weights, swam, or lifted anything heavier than 7 pounds? And yet, because of the 4-Hour Body diet, I’ve hardly put on any weight (just don’t…

Things I Don’t Do: Write Like I Should … I’m a Writer Who Sucks at Blogging Consistently

Holy crap! I call myself a writer, and then on the blog that should be easiest to fill with words and fleeting thoughts, I can’t even get that right. Like …I bought a writing desk for my room to celebrate my newest writing client….
