There are new posts at Life 2000. I hope you are enjoying your week. For the first time in 3.5 years, I find myself without external pressure to post each day. There are no points to collect. There is no money to earn. On the one hand, I find the situation freeing. I can write when I choose without worrying about losing credits.
On the other hand, knowing there is a short-term gain awaiting me is a good motivator. Without it, I sometimes feel as though few people care whether I write anything or not. I also know that once I stop writing for a day, I am likely to continue finding reasons not to write until I have crafted the “perfect” post in my mind. With outside pressures, I knew I had to write something. Once I began typing, I could usually conjure something I liked.
There must be a balance somewhere. So far, I have not been good at finding balance. Perhaps I’ll do better in the future in that regard. The goal is something for which I can strive. Let me know about some of the goals you are trying to achieve. I’d enjoy hearing from you. Certainly would be much better than the spam messages that populate the inbox currently.
