Probably the toughest thing to do is stay punctual. Fact. You might look at this and be like, “I’m punctual, what’s he even on about?”
Truth of the matter is Humans are creatures of comfort. We stick to doing what we find easy and love doing. New habits die young. That’s what the issue is. We can never stick to something unless we force ourselves to it, and then slowly it becomes a part of our daily lives.
That’s what this post is about. I stopped blogging in February of this year, and it’s not like I didn’t want to. I love the concept, but getting down to it is what made it difficult. It wasn’t a habit I had formed yet, but more of an impulse than anything. So I’m going to try drilling it in, and doing this more often because there’s so much to say, just not in the frame of saying it.
Psychologists say it takes a human three full weeks of doing something so it forms a part of our daily routine. To be honest, three weeks doesn’t even seem like a lot. 21 days. They pass by in a wiff.
Regularity is such a rare feat. by anyone nowadays. It’s not only work where it forms a habit. It happens with socialising, working out, personal goals, or even finishing a book for the matter.
So how about this, whenever you start something that you want to do, but takes an effort- try putting in the effort for three weeks, who knows, it might just pay off in the end.
I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.
