Developing a new habit is rather difficult but not impossible. I believe a mix of motivation and responsibility is needed. I have heard a lot of “baby steps” when talking about developing a new habit.
Baby steps means starting with something easy and small, but representative towards a new goal. Once you get used to it you can continue adding up some level of difficulty. It has worked great for me when developing the habit of exercising. I started with an 8 minute workout and was able to triplicate the time–still working towards this goal.
This post is my first baby step towards this blog.
I actually like writing
I recently finished an edX course about English Composition by Arizona State University. It was a great course. What I admired most about it was something called the “Writer’s Journal.” We were encouraged to write 20 post entries in a blog throughout the course.
Guess what? I enjoyed the course a lot! Not only because of the great content, but because I had to write a lot about subjects I wanted to.
What will I write about?
Since it is my personal blog it could be anything I want. But I think it will be mostly about: technology, design, productivity experiments, personal experiences and notes about books I read.
