Why Johny Can't Klog
(And write, sing, make a speech, submit code to an open source project, reply to that CEO memo or TAKE A RISK.)
I'm a firm believer that keeping reality and expectation in balance is important.
This does represent most of the unnamed reasons "I just don't know what to write about" .. "I don't have anything others are interested in" ... "I don't come across anything."
I am almost cynical about the lack of reading our world, which does have also has a significant affect on writing skills.
For klogging in particular, the spotlight does shine brighter. And taking the time to stop "working" and write a "story" of your experience also feels kinda odd. 3M gave their employees 20% of their time for personal R&D, are most employees willing to give their employees 60 minutes a week (12 mins a day...2.5% of a 40hr week.) ? I hope so. 1 30 seconds of searching through a personal wiki today saved me 10 minutes of digging through code.
What keeps me from klogging, and blogging? Perfectionism. Most of the sentences in my blogs have been written half and a one times. I rewrite the sentence halfway through. Each post takes 3-10 minutes. It's 10:08 .When 2 and a half blogs ago I looked at the clock and it ws 9:45.
