I’ve been thinking about writing a new blog post each day.
I don’t know when I’d start, or how long the endeavor might last. But it could be a helpful creative pursuit. It might force me to loosen up and stop second-guessing every word.
That’s what I hope, anyway.
I’ve been watching Casey Neistat videos over my lunch break. And sometimes videos about his videos. Let’s just say it’s like Casey Neistat inception hour from about twelve o’clock to one in my office.

He tells a good story. I like that about the guy. I like that he shares authentic snapshots of his daily life.
“When I first started doing daily [vlogs],” he said in a recent video, “the underlying premise was that if I constantly, every day make something new, it will keep me thinking; keep the brain going. … Making videos every day is this sense of purpose. It’s what I do. It defines me.”
