Hey people, Ariel here.
I’ve found it hard to keep up posting regularly. (If you have any blog management tips related to that, I’d much appreciate it!) I think part of the problem is, related to the tagline we have on our front page, water is everything. It relates to and is influenced by so many different aspects of our lives. It’s overwhelming and hard to find a good starting point. Also, I have perfectionist tendencies which means I feel like I have to get my head ALL THE WAY AROUND something before I begin doing it. But, I think I will never get my head ALL THE WAY AROUND water and its many quirks. Heck, that’s why I want my career to always be in it.
So I’m changing my mantra to “strive for progress, not perfection”. I think that will help get (and keep) me going.
Also, I’m aiming to focus my content on a few areas:
- water management in East Africa and the Western United States
- water quality
- urban water and wastewater infrastructure
- aid effectiveness
What are your methods for combating your perfectionism? How do you keep yourself blogging?
