I’ve tried to blog many times over the years.
My young self has always seen the value in it, but time goes by and the habit fades.
Honestly, it feels the same as working out, or eating right. I know I should do it, but somehow it falls to the side.
Will this time be different? Hopefully. But what’s different?
Accountability. I have people around me who know I’d doing this, so I don’t want to disappoint them.
Momentum. Quantity is the goal (for now). Quality will come. But keep the habit going without slowing down is priority.
Lastly, weirdly enough, working out and eating right also help. Not only having the energy levels to write, but all the good habits sorta reinforce each other. I workout every day and start my day correct. If I’m able to keep up one habit, I can keep up another. Momentum in all things.
I’m a developer and design nerd who’s been in this business for a long time. And yet imposter syndrome and “shoemaker’s children” always stick in my head.
Let’s see what happens. The future is up to me.
