The Creation Habit

Sometimes, I wonder if I am making progress in controlling my behavior in everyday life.

There are moments when I take a step back and think that I have about the same amount of discipline as I did a year ago. There are other times when I think that I have gotten a lot better at controlling my behavior and the sky is the limit. Those initial thoughts depend on what mood I am in at the time. I can go either way.

But when I think that I have not made progress, I remind myself of This blog immediately disproves the thought of me stagnating.

This is one of the great benefits of creating something. There is no denying its existence. Which, of course, could be a good or bad thing.

In this case, it is a good thing. I can look back at this blog and see disciplined action.

But, it was not just the content that kept me coming back.

Writing this blog has become a habit. I was planning on not writing a post this Monday. But I could not stop myself from doing it.

It is somewhat of a paradox.

Being disciplined in writing this blog has created a situation where I lack the discipline to stop consistently writing in this blog.
