What's Faster? 30 Minutes or 29 Days?


My Austin Kleon Challenge is done! It's a bit unsettling how quickly 29 days pass, but I managed to walk at least 30 minutes everyday for an entire month.


While my original intention was to learn to step away (pun intended) from my computer and just go for a walk, the surprise takeaway is how swiftly an entire month passes. This puts other goals into perspective, especially creative goals that intimidate me because of their massive scope. But seeing how the days stack up in a blink, I'm reminded of this beautiful quote from writer Annie Dillard.


“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” ― Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Alrighty, then. Let's get on it, shall we? One day at a time.


BONUS: My reward for completing the 29-Day Challenge was buying vinyl records, and I managed to find 50-year-old pressings of two Beatles albums!!! Here Comes the Sun....
