It’s late and I did all the things I wanted to today — my first day of freedom. It was glorious. And also not that exciting in the grand scheme of things, so I’ll spare you the details. Instead, I’ll note that I created this blog to help me build a habit of writing regularly, which is why I’m here tonight writing rather than going to bed (which I really want to do). So, I will keep this quick, and send you instead to this fascinating podcast on building habits, which I highly recommend. James Clear, the guest on this podcast, takes a systems view of how we build habits that speaks strongly to me, especially given my current career in cybernetics. Feedback loops are everywhere, it seems.
I also have James Clear’s book on my holiday reading list this year, so perhaps you’ll get a review out of me yet. In the meantime, here’s to building new lives, one “atomic habit” at a time.
