It's annoying when I actually make time to write and am excited to write but actually have nothing to write about. It doesn't feel like writers block, for I genuinely want to create something here.
I wrote about this yesterday and writing about this today. I thought I could put this to rest and write something useful... Apparently not.
Now that I've been writing for 60+ days I've realised that this new habit no longer requires any effort to do. It's become a part of my day and I enjoy reading other people's posts too. Actually, now that Medium firewalls the majority of the content they promote to me, I've found that now I read more on 200 WaD.
Forming this new habit has been relatively straightforward because of it's simplicity. If I'm honest, I don't think I've ever actually deliberately put my mind to a task over this long of a time. It feels really good to be consistent.
While there are still tons of other habits I'd love to form, I now realise that I need to find the sweet spot where it's not too hard, it's not too time consuming, it's enjoyable and it aligns my with my values / goals in life.
For example, two other habits I'd like to introduce are practicing the guitar daily and practicing German. Both tasks are scalable but they are also tricky to control because it's not always easy to find content that exactly matches my current level and learning objectives for the day.
Anyway, that's just something I want to work on more, now that I can see it's possible - just like 200 WaD has been.
