on some days, only momentum carries me on
January 22, 2009 1 Comment
So, why am I blogging instead, especially because I have nothing to say today?
I am blogging because I told myself I will try to blog every day for this month, January 2009, to see how it works for me. And let’s face it, the fifteen minutes I would save by not blogging (or the half-hour or hour) will barely make a dent in my to-do list, so why not at least stay on target here?
I do not know other bloggers personally, so I do not know what they get by blogging. What I am hoping to understand is, how difficult or easy is it to share thoughts in a forum that is so public, and yet where the chances are extremely high that I will not be read 🙂 Already, I can see that I tend to share great detail in some areas, and none in some others, and that making some types of entries satisfy me more than others. On January 30, I will start the process of consolidating my learning.
My lesson today is very simple. It is not always possible to think deeply. But it is still easy to continue a habit that is on schedule than to start catching up on stuff that is dishearteningly behind. Momentum helps. Once things fall too far behind, I guess an equivalent of a law of inertia takes shape, and I am sure time management gurus have nice-sounding names for this.
Me, I don’t have time to read time management books, either…at least, I can’t think of them today.
Maybe I should, at the very least, collate my pending list. Maybe it won’t be that big or frightening, and it may not take as long to write it out as it does to fret about it being scattered and uncontrolled 🙂
