Daily Habits Checklist (October 2nd – October 29th): “Savor the time you have”

A few changes for this month’s habits checklist: I removed the music habit (where I commit to singing or playing an instrument for one hour a day). Simply wasn’t getting it done, my focus had moved elsewhere, and I didn’t have any clear goals within view. A lack of focus and motivation, I think. But who knows, music might make a re-appearance, it’s still in the general milieu and I still take singing lessons.

In place of the music habit, I’ve brought back an oldie but goodie: the writing habit! Where I commit to writing – in a meaningful form, emails do not count – for at least 2 hours a day. This could be my public journal, or it could be short stories. Stuff that matters, that moves the goalposts.

Relentlessly prune bullshit, don’t wait to do the things that matter, and savor the time you have – Paul Graham
