So my attempt to write a post a day for the month of December failed after 4 days. Wow, that was quick. Life gets in the way but really, 4 days? Seems my attempt to get in some time on the bike and/or treadmilll suffered the same fate. Habits are hard to make routine.
It is good I am getting this lesson in now rather than waiting for some New Year’s resolution that I was crazy enough to make. I still have time to correct my errors. I have the opportunity to learn and adjust.
I’ve read before that it takes about 3 weeks to a month to establish a new habit. Zenhabits.com http://zenhabits.net/sticky provides some pointers on making a new habit stick – one of which is to focus on one habit at a time- sound advice. Perhaps if I focus on the fitness first and writing second (or the other way around) then I can at least make one of them a habit.
For now my plan is to write when I can, write a few posts at a time if I can, and roll them out as I can. I’ll create whatever time I can to fit it all in but also won’t stress about it too much – there is no use in writing about being a parent to the point that I am a bad parent because I am stressed about writing about… You get it.
So more to come soon – when? Not sure yet but soon.
