Chains

Inspired by Chris Strom, I’ve decided to create a new chain.  “Don’t break the chain” is based on the idea that consistent, repeated effort brings a successful outcome.  Each day you complete the task, you mark it.  After a while you’ve got a consecutive series of marks which form a chain.  As the chain gets longer, your motivation to not break the chain increases.  It’s not the length of the chain itself that is the key.  It’s that the chain encourages you to consistently and daily repeat the task.  Consistent and repeated task brings improved skill.  It’s that improved skill that’s the point.

My one-year chain is to write daily in this blog.  So, that’s it.  Here’s to day 1.
