So here I am again, a month since my last post and lamenting about how hard it is to get into a groove. Same thing with exercise; I’m training for a 5K in July and for 3 weeks it went well. I was following my prescribed training program and feeling really great about the progress I was making when, what do you know, something came up and one missed night led to 2 missed nights and now here I am, over a week since I left the program. At least I got a brief jog in earlier this week (even while traveling).
To me blogging is a lot like exercising. I know I should do it; it’s good for me mentally (and physically); I actually enjoy it once I start; but there’s always something that seems to take priority. The kids, work, chores at home, you name it. I know it takes something like 3 weeks for a new activity to become a habit so why do I keep falling just a day or so short? Anyone have any tips? Perhaps scheduling it into my day every day? I have a friend who, when he asks if I exercised that day, will respond with “Well did you have time to sleep? Because if you slept you had time to exercise.” Yes, in theory that’s true. But, again, why is this so hard?
The Daily Krier is running commentary on what's happening in my life on a regular basis. I write about things that interest me -- my family, my hobbies, my career in marketing. The blog was born from my interest in writing, my need to become more involved in all things related to social media, and my desire to start on my personal brand. The blog title is a play on my last name. It's technically pronounced "kreer" but everyone pronounces it as "cry-er". The mis-pronounciation lends itself extremely well to the title, don't you think?
