Why is it hard trying to keep a habit of writing a bit every day. Seriously, you think this would be a bit easier… Lots of people do it now.

I must confess, its been a lot harder to keep motivated to get things done (GTD) in the hobby sense when I get home from work… Quite a few things are contributing factors:

  • Conserving Power -- I no longer keep my desktop powered 24x7 since we moved into our new place. It's just enough inertia to actually have an effect. Sure I use my laptop, but it doesn't have the same horse power for the heavy lifting tasks.
  • Longer Work Hours -- Not significantly longer, but again, just enough to add up
  • Desktop Location -- The desktop is upstairs in the office. Especially during the summer, it was way too hot to spend extended periods of time up there. I need to reconsider having my guitar up ther as well, as I don't get around to playing it as often as I'd like.
  • Wolfi -- First thing I do when I get home is run around with him, take him for a walk and feed him. Don't get me wrong -- I love it! But its a few hours tacked on to the end of the day.

I know, excuses, excuses. I have a few post ideas brewing and I have a two week business trip coming up which means plenty of idle hotel time to write. Hopefully I’ll get the juices flowing again.
