The two blog rule

The two blog rule

I often get asked “Pete, how do you produce such a prolific quantity of high quality blogs?”.

OK … to tell the truth I’ve never been asked that question. But when the day comes and someone does ask me, I’ll have the answer ready.

The two-blog rule.

Making sure it's not just made up

So, I’ve just finished reading a productivity book which quoted an amazing study out of Harvard that began in 1964. They asked the graduating students who had written down their goals – only 5% had.

20 years later, they came back and checked how they went. An unbelievable 95% of the students who had written down their goals had achieved them, compared to only 5% of those who hadn’t written them down. Additionally, the 5% of students who had written down their goals had accumulated more wealth than the other 95% combined.
