I have decided to cut back on 200wad for now.
Not the writing part, but the interacting, reading and commenting.
I love you guys and we have something special here, but 200wad is becoming another time waster for me, along with Reddit, Facebook and Twitter. It has just become another place to go where I am looking for a "hit" of insight into my own life, by reading about others.
Sure, some of you have some good views on life, happiness, business and being fulfilled but for me, I have realized that it needs to come from within. For too long I have been looking to external things like books and YouTube videos to try to help me. The lightbulb moments of epiphany have not come yet - and I don't think they will.
I have always had that nagging feeling that throughout all of my problems, be it depression or struggling to take action with my online business (probably the same root cause) I have been looking for someone or something that will lead me to take action. I have been looking for that "spark" that might jump start my brain.
But I don't think it exists.
It has to come from within me. I have to want to do these things, improve myself and my life and get what I want, but I will have to work out a way to do it on my own. No book or video, mentor or guru will help me if I can't even open a document and write the next article that might propel my business idea forward.
200wad has taught me that forming a positive habit is possible.
I now need to apply this simple logic to my life.
I will still be here each day, writing, but will try to avoid getting pulled into the rabbit hole too.
Edit: just thought I would also drop this link here about cutting down on attention seeking apps and habits. Useful information.
