Review of January 2019 a.k.a Humblebrag 🙃
I somehow persevered in writing 200 words every day in January 2019. It's a habit that I have been looking to build for a while. I am so happy to have found this community.
Honestly, I underestimated the magnitude of this challenge. Writing 200 words every day sounded easy peasy. I thought it would be effortless since I have various interests. But I felt like an empty vessel after 15 days. Many days, I was staring at the blank screen. Sometimes I was seeking inspiration from random sources
What kept me going was just the age-old saying, "Believe in the process than the outcome". I just added a reminder to write 200 words a day and made a point to complete it.
I want to build twelve new habits in 2019.
I started 2019 with a keystone habit, writing. My focus for January was to write every day. I am happy that I succeeded.
I will reinforce this habit by continuing the same for February. In the next months, I will focus on improving the quality of the content, improving the diversity of the topics, exploring specific themes in some weeks. Maybe, I will also try publishing a mini-book, like Basile. But I am in no-pressure-just-chill-and-write mode.
I want to thank the few people who read & gave feedback. One comment from my colleague is like permanently etched in my mind. Her feedback was to focus on the idea rather than the flowery words to express it. Thanks a lot for that, Zulfa. I will try.
