(New) Habits are hard to keep

Published on: Dec 15 2013 by DaddyCast

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.
