It Should Be Easier
It really doesn’t take that long to write a blog post, right? Just jot down some thoughts into a few paragraphs. Try to sound coherent. Make them relevant.
Okay, so it isn’t easy for me to do this quite as often as I had planned. My goal was to do this weekly at best and bi-weekly at worst. And as you can see (if there are any people acutally reading this), I can barely make it once per month.
Behaviorally, I don’t have the contingencies in place to make writing this blog reinforcing enough to engage in that behavior. I do write. But it is more academic writing for work than for pleasure. And then there is the grading for the classes I’m teaching. But enough of the excuses.
I think I’m settling into my academic routine. Things are going pretty well. Once I get the first Promotion and Tenure documents done, I’ll have more time. And then maybe I can get my contingencies straightened out. Behavior analysis works wonders to change behavior. But it isn’t always easy to do on yourself.
