Clearly I am Doing This Wrong

I was recently shared a blog post by someone who was celebrating a streak of posting every day for 11 years. This is an impressive feat. My own attempt at posting daily has had several occasions where I have failed (six days so far this year). How does he think he has done it?

Habits are much easier to maintain than commitments.

I’m pretty sure that the blog would still have an impact if I missed a day here or there, but once a commitment is made to a streak, the question shifts from, “should I blog tomorrow,” to, “what will tomorrow’s blog say?”

Ahh, now I see my problem. I went from asking “should I blog today,” to, “what will today’s blog say?” Clearly to help maintain a streak I need to start preparing tomorrow's post ahead of time.

Maybe I will start to do that tomorrow...
