I am Sisyphus

Every time I build up some sort of momentum, I have a bad habit of squandering it.

That’s right. Just call me Sisyphus.

He’s the guy that was cursed to roll a large boulder up a hill every morning. Only to see it roll back down to where he started by the end of the day.

I do this with my fitness. I start a routine and once I get the momentum started, I slack off.

And then I have to start all over again.

I do this with my playwriting. After I finish a project, instead of starting something new, I slack off.

And then it’s months or years before I start working on another project.

And I do it with my blog post writing.

Ideally, I’d like to get into the habit of posting weekly. But I don’t even do it consistently every month.

I’ve challenged myself to post daily for short periods of time. And I’ve been able to do it.

But once the challenge is over, the momentum ends too. And I’m back to the beginning.

It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about, either. It’s that I don’t have the energy to write.

It’s like I know where I want to go, but I don’t have any gas in the tank.

The calendar year is coming to a close and I’ve been thinking about all those posts I meant to write…

Fall down seven times, get up eight times. Yep. It’s that time again.

I’m going to push myself to write some of the posts that have been percolating in my head. Maybe a couple of new ones that come up, too.

Time to do another 30-Day Challenge to myself to post daily.

I’ve got my hands on the boulder.
