self training to do more of what matters
daily practices for well-being, self discipline, and focus
what is this camp?
A year ago, after a long, indulgent summer, I made a booklet for myself called Camp Kening. I was tired of feeling distracted, pushed and pulled by commitments, disconnected from myself, and feeling like I’d made little progress on my goals.
Camp Kening is the place I go to recommit to myself. It’s my inner strength training camp for nurturing my wellbeing and pursuits. I shared it with friends, who encouraged me to make it into a real thing. So, here it is!
who camp is for
I made Camp Kening for myself, and you’re going to do Camp (your name). You might like to join me if you’re interested in any of these:
To get grounded in yourself, and focus on personal well-being
To create more structure and accountability for your goals
To make time for creative pursuits
To spend time and energy more deliberately
To build better habits and routines
how it works
The philosophy behind Camp is that daily routines and habits are far more effective than planning one’s life to the tee. It’s about building flexible structures that work effortlessly with our lives, instead of imposing on them.
There are 3 steps, and they’re very simple.
Step 1: Decide what’s important to you
Step 2: Plan a daily practice around it
Step 3: Make it seamless with your life
how to begin:
start by building an essential morning routine
There’s a lot of topics I want to share in the next few months —ranging from building indestructible creative practices, to living an intentional digital life— but for now, the very foundational first step is to build an essential morning routine.
Why? Because how I spend the first 1-3 hours of my day more often than not, determines how my day goes. It’s the base for everything that comes after.
