The secret is every day. Everyday tip #25

I've learned that I am a creature of habit. I've been writing here daily -- I haven't skipped a day so far in 2012 (granted, the year is only 25 days long so far) -- and I think I've become addicted to it.

What seemed like an impossible project has become part of my life.

Now, who knows what the future holds: There is an excellent chance that I will miss a day here or there, but writing here has become a habit in the very best way.

I've read this advice countless times: It is easier to do something every day than to do it sporadically. It's usually applied to things we don't really want to do, but I love writing...just not as much as I apparently loved avoiding it.

Now that I do it every day, it's so much easier to do it.

Try doing it, whatever it is, every day. At least for a while. It works.

Indeed. It works when you do something regularly because you'll get used to the flow and your day wouldn't be complete with doing that particular task. Aside from blogging, what's something that you can't miss doing everyday?

Thanks for the inspiration! Will try to implement something to myself on a daily basis.
