It happens every month or two. I feel like I haven’t published and want to get back to posting things regularly. I usually think of what Seth Godin says: write in the editor.
For me, that’s opening up WordPress and going full screen in the editor. When I’m here, I know that I’m writing something for publishing. I can sort of keep that in mind when I’m writing in Evernote or Google Docs and especially MarsEdit. But none give me the “Okay I’m writing to publish this” the way that writing right in the editor does.
Anyway, some bullets. Actually, first, a pizza
- Finally ate at Lucali’s — Well, got a pie from Lucali’s at least. Which was great since it meant that there wasn’t an hour+ wait to get a seat. Everything they say is true. It’s really good pizza. My favorite slice in the world is a fra diavolo from Pizza Suprema. But that’s because it has nostalgia as a major topping for me. But really that’s the one I’d want. And it shouldn’t be compared to a thin crust slice since it’s not apples to apples. What I ate today was awesome and definitely gives me a twinge of sadness that we’re leaving New York in a couple months.
We’ve got some eating to do.
Okay the timer actually ran out so I guess it’s just one bullet for now. Gotta respect the timer.
Today’s listen: BJ Fogg | How the Tiniest Habits Lead to the Biggest Changes (TRAINED by Nike, hosted by Ryan Fisherty) — I read BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits earlier this year (check out my posts with the tiny-habits tag for more) and have started applying some of the idea in it more recently to get back on the exercise/nutrition wagon (ignore the pizza paragraph above). Now I’m wishing that I really tried applying them earlier. But better late than never.
Anyway, something he stresses is having tiny celebrations for tiny wins. (Rather than no celebration at all.) Getting the tiny habit done and feeling good about it will help to make it stick.
Stopping when the 10 minute timer ends and feeling that satisfaction means I can build my writing habit back up. But it does mean to stop and hit publish.
Ok I’m going to do that now.
