It’s the first of the month, which can mean only one thing… It’s time to start a brand new habit. The logic goes that is takes roughly 30 days to form a habit. So, if you pick a new skill or “thing” to work on for every month, then at the end of the year you’ve not only got 12 kick-ass shiny new habits, but you’ve developed your character along the way. You upgrade the size of your will power reserves, and become a more disciplined person. What’s not to love? For me, I try new things to push my mind out of it’s comfort zone. This month, it’s not going to be a habit per se (although it could turn into one). The thing I’m worst at.. is definitely art. Damn. I hate drawing, painting, scuplting. I’m rubbish at it. Which is why, for the next 30 days, until the 1st of August rolls around, I’m going to draw a picture everyday. Maybe it will strike some creative well within me. Who knows? So, pick something to work on until 1st of August. And do it EVERYDAY.
