Here’s how it works. He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker. He said for each day that I do my task of writing (or drawing, painting, etc…), I get to put a big red X over that day. “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.” “Don’t break the chain,” he said again for emphasis.

I had forgotten about this blog post of mine. I added the “or drawing, painting, etc…” part for a little clarity, and to show it can apply to anything you wish to apply yourself consistently to. I need to put this into action once we get back in Vancouver next month.
