Today I noticed a fb post by Sam about streaking.  Lest you get concerned that I will be shedding my clothes and heading off down the road, you can rest easy and save your bail money.  I am talking about the other kind of streaking - the hard kind.

You know, the kind that makes a new GOOD habit stick (why are BAD habits so much easier to keep?).  The kind of streaking that you do day after day (after day after day after day) until it is just a part of your life.  The kind of streaking that may not be as fun as the other, but ultimately may be more rewarding.

Anyhow, I like the idea.  I like the idea of good habits sticking and becoming just routine.  I like the idea of doing something purposefully for a period of time until I almost do it without thinking.  I like the idea.

Maybe it's because I have already started a streak.  I started a week ago recording everything I eat every day, and adding the stuff I get accomplished every day.  I bought a new notebook just for this purpose, and have been filling it out every day - for a week.

I'm hoping it will help me eat better and keep focused on things I need to do.  I'm hoping that by recording and seeing and doing, I will develop those good habits that I want.  I'm hoping that this will be the start of a new and better life for me.

And just to think - it all started because I decided to start streaking!
