Once I get into the exercise habit, I actually start to enjoy exercising. At first, I have to make myself do it but after awhile I look forward to it and hate it if I miss a day. But when I stop for any reason – I’m working really hard or get sick – then I have a very hard time getting started again.
The same appears to be true for posting to this blog. For years I said I would never blog; that I didn’t have enough ideas to populate a blog regularly. And the first few posts were difficult but once I got the hang of it, it seemed like everything in my daily life had blog potential Then a couple of weeks ago I became very busy and stopped posting. I wrote five posts between August 1 and August 5, but since then I’ve written one brief post on August 15 (and Martin Eberhard did the hard work for me).
So, I’m adopting the same strategy I do when I need to start exercising again. Just do something! Anything! The initial effort doesn’t have to be that big. Just start. So here it is.
