Streaks and Habits

It’s not easy.

Keeping a streak.

I missed a day again.

What disturbs me the most is the reason: it totally slipped my mind.

How can something that you’ve been doing every day for months just completely not cross your mind?

Well, I think I know. There were some unique circumstances. And it involved me being completely obsessed with trying to accomplish a certain task. So, most of the afternoon and evening was consumed.

It might have crossed my mind earlier in the day, but I put it off. And that’s the dangerous part. Right at that moment I should have done something significant to make sure I would do it later. Like put a big note somewhere where I couldn’t miss it.

But no biggie. Who cares really? You wouldn’t have even noticed if I didn’t say anything.

I care.

I’m trying to do something here.

I’m trying to set up a new habit that is consistent. And even though I’m mostly successful (missing one day a month is not bad) I need to have a better system.

So, I’m going to figure something out.

(You don’t have to worry about it.)

Just stay tuned.

Or not 🙂

The Habit

Every day?

Do I really want to post every day?

I don’t know if ‘want’ is the right word. It’s more about the fact that writing or posting every day is the work of a professional. That doesn’t mean it’s the best or most professional product or output every day, but it’s the Practice that is the goal. So, I want to be a professional.

Creating something for the market to interact with every day is the work of a pro. And by doing it, I’ll get better.

Is it really that hard? It doesn’t have to be long or complicated. Something short takes effort too. But, it’s not the output that counts for me right now, it’s the habit.

So don’t judge.

This is for me right now. Excellent output will come later.

Baby steps.

Every day?

Yes!
