Delivered free, daily, for decades. You can subscribe at no cost by email, by following this blog on Twitter or Facebook, and best of all, by RSS.

I write every word. I don't understand outsourcing something this personal, a privilege this important.
The secret to writing a daily blog is to write every day. And to queue it up and blog it. There is no other secret.
The blog contains more than 2,700,000 words, delivering the equivalent of more than thirty full-length books. The blog doesn't exist to get you to buy a book… sometimes I think I write the books to get people to read the blog.
I haven't missed a day in many, many years–the discipline of sharing something daily is priceless. Sometimes there are typos. I hope that they're rare and I try to fix them.
Over time, the blog adds up. People remember a blog post a year after I wrote it. Or they begin a practice, take an action, make a connection, something that grows over time. The blog resonates with people in so many fields, it's thrilling to see how it can provoke positive action.
It's true that I'd write this blog even if no one read it, but I want to thank you for reading it, for being here day after day. It's more fun that way. There are more than a million subscribers, and, best I can tell, people read this in nearly every country in the world.
PS There are two easily found collections of some of my best posts. They are Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck and Small Is The New Big.
And there are also two complete collections, each weighing more than 17 pounds.
One is out of print and a collector's item, the other has just 600 copies left. That's the end of the run–worth gifting…
Unboxing stories are here. To celebrate #7000, the last copies are on sale until they're all gone.
Thanks for being part of this journey.
