You continue to miss days in this blog, and instead of kicking yourself over it, you’ve decided to get down to the root of the problem. Why can’t you build the habit of writing every day?

Historically, you’ve noticed patterns in your life — strong desires to perform, utilizing your creativity and effort — only to fizzle out a few days later. You see that it’s not just the blog, but a pattern, a recurring issue, that you wish to understand better.

You wish to not just have good habits, but to know how to build them, and to keep them.

You read in Charles Duhigg’s The Power of Habit that more than 40 percent of actions are just habits. And you know that to build a habit means to rewire brain chemistry, as if you were going against your own nature. Building a habit is hard, and yet becomes easy over time.

It all clicks into place. You realize, all you have to do with it, is follow through.

Being successful with habits is something anyone can do. So of course you can do it, and way better too.

You think of smoking, drinking, other addictive drugs. Imagine if you could use that obsessive power to accomplish your goals. And you remember, it is possible. It’s how the brain works.

Don’t let your dreams be dreams.

You did it. Shia style.
