Yesterday, the week’s activities and a few sleepless nights caught me. Tiredness smashed my resolve to move, and a migraine wrecked my concentration. When I can’t complete my intended goals, I review my long To-Do list for simple tasks. They are typically mundane jobs—things I need to accomplish. But either they never make it to the top of the list, or they are just downright repugnant. Cleaning the basement bathroom, weeding the thistle-infested, thorn-filled rose garden, and sanitizing the sunbaked, reeking trash bin make the top, or rather, the bottom of my list. They are thankless jobs, and I always reward myself for my perseverance when I finish the chore. Besides, these hot and humid summer days demand a cool drink and an indulgent afternoon of reading.
I always remember my number one priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday I wrote 488 words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
