I’ve decided that I need to start taking my own advice. For months now, I’ve been trying to encourage a friend to get writing – he loves to do it, but never makes it a priority, never creates time for it, so he is struggling to create a habit.
Ah, habit. My old friend.
I keep saying to him ‘just 10 minutes a day, if you can find that, and do it every day, you’ll make progress.’ And it’s true. 10 minutes a day is all it takes to form a habit. If you do something every day, no matter how short the time, eventually it just becomes part of what you do.
Natalie is 8 weeks old tomorrow. Can you believe it? I can definitely find 10 minutes a day now, even if it seems like an effort at times.
I confess to spending last week pretty much just watching Bones. I watched every episode of Season 5 from Mon-Fri. 5 days, 22 episodes. That’s dedication. That was needed downtime. But now, it’s time to get back on the horse and carve out regular time.
Just 10 minutes a day.
