A momentous day, I have managed to blog for 25 days in a row. So to recap
Writing blog – 25 days
Meditate – 25 days
Brain Training – 7 Days ( I don’t recall missing one but it is saying I have done only 7 in a row)
The writing, editing of the book hasn’t been as consistent as I would like. A better approach is needed, with all the others items they are specific, the writing and corrections aren’t. I started with an hour a day and realised we tend to live busy lives, but that’s just an excuse. I wrote in the morning on the train, I wrote at lunchtime but it certainly wasn’t a habit, it tailed off. That, I need to redress. I am sitting here thinking the best approach. Writing for an hour, an exact hour is difficult. I get on the train, I might have been listening to a podcast or audiobook while walking. I might have started browsing the internet, looking at Twitter or my emails and then start writing. The journey is around forty-five minutes how much of this do I write for? Even the days I write at lunch, I walk to the Library and back and write in between. The idea hits me while I type this, something I tell my daughter to use and I ignore myself, time boxing. The Pomodoro technique, small chunks of time where I do nothing but write. I can make this into a habit. I will endeavour to write in 15-minute segments.
I wanted to continue. I had to cut so many words to fit it all into 250. I am excited about tomorrow. To throw away the shackles of oppression with limited words. To be able to compete with myself, to see how many fifteen minute segments I can accomplish.
