I’ve decided that I’m going to write something here every day. Something, no matter what it is.
I’m a voracious consumer of information, and am bothered when I think about how little I produce, and how rarely my reflection gets out of my head. I’ve thought to myself that the two most important habits I would like to establish in my life are regular exercise and regular reflection in the form of journaling. I feel like other habits would follow, and that exercise and written reflection would be a great place to develop from.
Unfortunately, regular private journaling hasn’t become a habit, so I’m going to commit to adding at least one thought to this public journal each and every day. Hopefully doing so will also spur me to delve more deeply into private journaling. In any case, it will prove to myself that I have at least one thought every day, and committing to place these thoughts in a public place will put some pressure on me.
I’m inspired by Overread’s 365 photo blog, which provides an interesting view of a daily discipline. I’m also inspired by Scott Adam’s daily thoughts on the Dilbert Blog. I’m not aiming for Scott’s wit or insight, but I like the idea of having at least a thought a day.
