Here’s how this will hopefully be different. I was reading recently about Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret on Lifehacker. Basically, to build a habit to do something every day, put up a big calendar and put a big X on each day to perform the task. I’m trying this now with the March Photo a Day Challenge, and it’s going pretty well. Haven’t missed a day so far. In an earlier trial, I took a self portrait every day for over two years!
Although, with photos, my big calendar becomes a daily post on Flickr or Instagram. It may sound like I’m breaking Jerry’s one rule, but I think it adds an extra dimension of social responsibility, as I’m participating with friends.
30 Days of Biking has a similar facet, as we are encouraged to post notes and photos from each day’s ride. I will post here with a Flickr photo and a Tweet pointing back.
Wish me luck! And I suggest you may want to try it as well.
