After reading The Happiness Advantage two years ago I was turned on to the idea of journaling. I kept a daily journal for almost a year, but recently have fallen out of the habit. When I decided start cultivating better habits, it made sense to start here.
Habit: Work on this blog for at least 1 hour everyday for 66 days.
Start Date: Sunday, 08/02/2015
Projected End Date: Tuesday, 10/06/2015
- Read two books related to writing or blogging that will help me focus my efforts.
- Reach out to two people who can provide insights about blogging.
- Take a Coursera course related to writing.
- Post weekly progress updates on Wednesdays about developing my blogging habit.
Incentive: When I meet my goal of working on the blog everyday for 66 days, my reward will be an upgrade to my blog!
Lofty Goal: Finding my passion
Blogging about cultivating better habits will allow me to reflect on the progress I make. I also hope that by taking the time to analyze each habit I will discover my true motivation behind it. By trying to only cultivate habits that speak to my lofty goals I can hone in on what really drives me.
