Read here how he has accomlished this achivement. (Following paragraph is the part of the whole article published at ZENHABITS blog.
How Did You Build Up Zen Habits So Quickly?
One of the most oft-asked questions is about how I grew the readership of Zen Habits in the course of its first year (2007) to become one of the Top 50 blogs in the world. I started from nothing, knowing no bloggers, knowing nothing about blogging — so what’s my secret?
There’s no secret, really. If I have any secret, it’s this: pick topics that I know about that people want to learn about, and then provide as much useful information about those topics as I possibly can — and then write it in a clear, fairly concise, easily scannable (because people are busy) form with a catchy headline.
The catchy headline is simply to draw people into your post, because often they are looking at a list of headlines (in their feed reader, on another blog, on del.icio.us, etc.) and if your headline doesn’t catch their attention, they’ll never read your stuff. The rest seems like common sense, but it takes awhile to get good at all of it.
I often get criticized for writing list posts, but 1) I think in lists, and 2) people seem to like lists, because they can easily scan through a post to get the info they’re looking for. It’s convenient for the reader, who is a busy person, and in my opinion making things easier for your readers is a good thing.
Using these “secrets”, I applied them in the following ways:
1. I tried to provide as many useful and valuable posts on my blog as possible. The more the better. It won’t do to have a good post every few weeks — it has to be several times a week, at least.
2. I wrote as many guest posts on other blogs as possible, using the same “secrets”. I made them as useful as possible, with a catchy headline. Those guest posts gained me new readers and exposure to new audiences. If you do this enough times, and you provide really valuable posts each time, you’ll find success.
3. Once I had a number of readers, they would share my best posts on social bookmarking sites such as Digg or delicious or StumbleUpon, and thus I would find new readers. (Btw, if you share my posts on these sites, I am very happy, so thank you!)
There’s not much more to it than that, other than to try to avoid getting upset by negative comments, and to try to interact with your readers when possible.

To succeed in life you have to accept the change. Changes make life challenging . It is also very important to notice small changes early so that you can easily adopt to bigger changes. For life, change is necessary.
Why Change is needed?
1) Many times in order to survive we have to start the change process.
2) Only change is consistent in the life. You have to accept this truth.
3) We sometimes need to get rid of old memories, habits and other past traditions.
4) Only freed from past burdens, can we take advantage of the present.
5) You can either choose to ride the wave of change or go beneath it.
6) See the nature around you it is always in a process of change. You have to change to grow. Remember your childhood, as you grow you look different. Change is everywhere.
Are you in sync with it? That's the questions.

I take this opportunity to tell about the concept Guru.
What is Guru?
Guru is someone who directs you to your destination. Guru tells you the truth. Guru does not give you the solution but it guides you to the path which leads to solution. The final objective of Guru is to give you complete knowledge.
A Guru is a person who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom and authority in a given area, and uses it to guide others. The Guru is a Sanskrit word.
Gu, darkness, and Ru, light ; literally a guide who shows others knowledge (light) and destroys ignorance (darkness).

Many times question arises in my mind when I saw people working and doing something around me that "Are they really want to do this thing or they are doing this for the sake of something.
People are living their life without knowing the true objective of their life. "
Why I am doing this?"
"Does I meant to do this or something else?" , When was the last time you asked this question to yourself. If not this is the time to question yourself, you abilities and your dream.
When was the last time you enjoyed work you are doing? Very hard, right?
This happens with many people, but what are doing to come out of this phase, are we struggling to work in the way we want to work.
What is your passion?
Passion is about doing something you love to do. It can be anything you Like the most. It can be work, a hobby, a sport, food.
What would you like to do if time was no restrictive, money not and issue and nothing to stop you from doing that?
For some, it’s a question people are afraid to answer because they might realize that
“why am I not doing this?”
"I love doing this, however I can’t because…"
I have read multi-millionaires talk about what makes them so successful? it’s doing something you passionate about and the money will follow.
All you need to find out what is that passion in your life. :)
Art is a important, craft is necessary
With the help of the passion you can get the energy and enthusiasm to do the work, but to so that work professionally you need to know the ins and out of that work. This will make you attractive from the Markets perspective.
As someone said "Do what you love to do and make someone else to pay you for doing it"
Remove the Fear
"Be not afraid of anything. You will do marvelous work. The moment you fear, you are nobody. It is fear that is the great cause of misery in the world. It is fear that is the greatest of all superstitions. It is fear that is the cause of our woes, and it is fearlessness that brings heaven even in a moment. Therefore, 'Arise, awake, and stop not till the goal is reached".
We often go into loop of thinking about the negative consequences of the action. What will happen if I failed.
When you are dilemma think about the worst case that will happened? If answer is anything other than death then trust me it will only give you strength irrespective of the result.
Take the risk
If you want the different result in your life then you should start seeking different approaches in doing things. The major obstacle is the comfort zone. Everybody lives in his/her comfort zone which very difficult to break many times.
Many times the inbuilt passion is the best fuel which make the person consistent in following his/her dreams. But one energy source is not sufficient. Try to read motivational books, autobiographies of highly successful peoples. Neglect the people who is criticizing you. Make a visual form of your dream, it can be a snapshot (e.g. if you want to buy a car then car pic or if you want a flat stomach then its pic). Write down your dream once before your go sleep.

Normally on holidays I woke up early. I agree that its totally mismatching with 60% of the world who sleep till afternoon on the holidays. But this Sunday I woke up at 11:00am :)
Last night me and Neel has decided to go out to some cool place like Mulashi or Sinhgad. Finally I decided to go to Tamhini Ghat.
Way to Tamhini Ghat
To reach Tamhini ghat you have to go through the following route.
Pune - Chandani Chowk - Bhugav - Pirangut - Paud - Mulashi - Tamhini - Tamhini Ghat
(Total 70 KM)
To see the road map of the Tamhini ghat on Wiki please click here.
2 is a company , 3 is a crowd and we wanted it!!! :)
As I have mentioned earlier Tamhini ghat is around 70 km away from the Pune city, we start asking right party people for the trip from our colony.
Finally we got a group which of mixed age group from 14yrs to 26 yrs. I was eldest in the group. (Lots of responsibility huh!!!)
But all were the happening people in the group, no body was party spoiler.
We reached Mulashi Dam in 1 hour. We took a pause over there since lots of scenic places were there.
We has some sweet corn and we moved ahead, I was thinking that if there is this much of greenery in the world why people are tensed about the Global Warming :)))
High till tops and water falling from those hill top. It was having a pure white color when it falls down. What a beautiful scene it was!!! I was really feeling like I am in heaven. If there I would like to define heaven I can define it using the pics from this article. It was really awesome.
Finally we reached at the natural waterfalls at Tamhini Ghat. It can not be expressed in the words. But I am still trying. Water is so fresh and cold that it make you so fresh to give you energy to enjoy more.
(Village in the heaven)
Bhajjiya and Chai
After such wonderful experience our stomach start asking for glucose. We found one nice restaurant "Quick Byte" while returning. We had very delicious "Bhajiya" and "Vada" with Tea and Coffee. I am really recalling all those moments. I really lived those moments very much.
Finally we reached home with a debate that next time whether we should come on bikes or in car as we did today.
I was for bikes :)

I hope that you liked the part 1 of the story, you read Part 1 here.
Journey till Caves:
Ganesh took us to the caves, we were tired and totally worn out. It was nature who was proteting us from falling down. It was giving the energy from its scenery. It was caring us like a mother. And some time scolding us thorough clouds that don't go into the danger, take care.
According Ganesh journey till this spot was very easy and now its more easy. He has to return home after excorting us safely into the Naneghat Caves. He was doing his job perfectly well. The atmosphere was excellent but we were exausted like anything.
Everywhere it was green, our lungs were breathing the best form of air one can have. Everyone's faces were glowing. I was really suprise that how can I walk so long without taking the rest. My body is totally exausted still I am able to walk. I was pushing myselft, I was pushing my limits.
On that plateau, the soil was covered with green grass and we were surrounded by the fog. The scene was remembering me many bollywood movies.
The caves were around 4 km from the plateau. Finally we reached to the caves,Marwadi Family
When we reached the caves tall guy welcomed us, he was with his family and little child. We really got surprised by there enthusiasm. They came from dombiwali.
We took our mats. That family was preparing Khichadi on camp fire. We also opened our tiffins and started having our dinner in the caves. After such a tiresome journey food was tasting awesome.
After the meal we sat at campfire. I was imagining about the Naneghat which is the 2000 old toll booth. In marathi "Nane" means coins and ghat means passage. People used give coins as a toll when they pass by this route. Thats why people started calling it as Naneghat. We went to bed (Mat ?) at around 3:00am. :)
The only cave,a hall 8.72 sq.mt. & 2.4 mt. high carries ihe important images inscriptions carved out by the Satvahan queen Nagnika.
There were 7 (or 8 ?) inscribed figures bearing names of members of Satvahan family, upon the hind wall. The images are now mostly disintegrated except for the vestiges of a few broken body-limbs.
However the names are legible and the 'persons commemorated are
(1) Raya Simuka the first king of Satvahan dynasty,
(2) Queen devi Naynika,
(3) Sri Satkarni,
(4) Kumara Bha...ya,
(5) Maharathi Ga (tra?) nakayiro,
(6) Kumara Hakusiri,
(7) Kumara Satvahana.
This Naneghat royal portrait sculpture, the earliest figure sculpture of the Satvahan period undoubtedly represents the first example of any portrait sculpture in India. The two side-wall inscriptions enumerate the benevolent & philanthropic acts of the Queen Nagnika, depicting thereby the social, economic, religious & political Me of the ancient Deccan.
On way across 2 km long Naneghat there are several rock-hewn water tanks and inscriptions around.
Here comes the Sun and Jounery starts again...
We woke up at 7:00am. I opened my eyes and I was watching at the sealing. I can cleared see the inscription from the Satvahan era. The Queen Nagnika has carved the name of there family members.
In the morning lots of groups from Thane were coming to visit the Naneghat. It was like picnic spot for them. But for me I was trying to imagine the Queen Nagnika and her Vision.
You can see the tourist going back to Konkan. This route goes to konkan. This was the trade route in the ancient times.
There are lots of caves carved in this area but only one cave is suitable for living.
Water tanks for natural water, it taste very sweet and really refreshing you. After the photo session we started our journey back to the Ghatghar village again 3 to 4 km journey.
When you leave the Naneghat you can see the beatiful road to the light (see the picture below)
Morning jorney towards the bhatghar
We have already started our journey towards Bhatghar village. Three pilgrims religiouly walking to view and worship the nature.
We kept walking thourgh the rice farms and finally we reached the village.
Ramesh Pansare and his medicines on Diabetes and Tooth pain
We came back to the lady's house. She prepared tea and "Kanda - Poha" for us. Her husdand started talking with us. (People of this village are very talkative - I love it.)
His two sons stood first in the taluka level. One was studing in pune in Garware College. He was very polite and knowledgable person. Some kind of aura was there on his face.
While the conversation he stood up and took some leafs from his pocket and kept it in his mouth.
"This is the Morial Plant, if you keep it in your tooth, your tooth pain will go in 30 min", Ramesh added.
He showed us another plant's leaf which good for diabetes, the villagers call it as "Bedakicha Pala". He asked me to eat one. I ate one leaf and after that he gave me the sugar.
"Unbelivable", I shouted. I was not able to get the sweetness of the sugar in my mouth. I was just feeling like I am eating the stone in my mouth. "Wonderful, siimply wonderful".
Ramesh told us about one more plant called "Haadsaandhi", if you put it on your wounds (severe /simpe) it will get cured within 7 days. It is also good for the fractures.
I took some diabetes plant for my Grandma, when we offered money for the plant he told we dont take money for the medicine.
He also added that we only give medicines to people who are really in need for that.
I remembered one line from the spiderman movie, "Power comes with responsibility".
Disaster and help from the Sunil Jadhav
Again we came back to our car checked the tyre pressure and started our journey to home. We crossed 5 km and suddenly we realized that we got one tire punctured. :)
"We got a situation", Nikhil said.
"Do we have the spare tire?", I asked immediatly.
Nikhil said, "yes"
"What about the jack?" Vineet asked.
"yes, But I don't have the spanner", "Nikhil said in low voice.
He he, we were laughing but confused about where we can get the spanner. Suddenly we saw a jeep coming towards us.
We asked him whether he have the set of spanner, he refused but he said that there is a village 20 km from here where you can get the mechanic and the spanners.
I went with him to the Garage where I meet Mr Sunial Jadhav. A 39 year old person runs a garage in the village, it is the only garage over there.
He offered me tea when I reached his garage, I told him the story about the car. He took his two villar and we came back to the car. He changed the punctured tire with spare tire and our journey started again.
Leopard rehabilitation center
Nikhil called one of his friend "Mr. Edake" who was zoologist. He is working in the Loapard rehabilitation . Nikhil said when we reach junnar we will visit Loapard rehabilitation center at Manikdoha.
The following board welcome us when we reach that center.
You are in the leapards teritory, please follow the instucrtions given below when you are in farms of jungle.
1) Be alert when you sits down or bend down.
2) Keep a stick with you for self protetion.
3) Be in groups, do not walk alone.
It warning it self was so adventurous. But unfortunatly we are not allowed to enter into the centre since it was not for the tourists.
The learning from this trip was :
1) Health is wealth.
2) No body is mighter than the nature.
3) You can not predict the nature of the person from his appereance.
4) Sometimes you have to do the task without knowing the end result.
5) For joy you don't require money.
6) Nothing is better than the home. :)
I hope you liked this article on my journey to the Naneghat and Jivdhan. Now I am trying to complete some trek in this season.
