Do you ever stop to look at how you work? Do you call yourself (or others) a creature of habit? Or do you just go ahead and not worry about such things?
I actually find it mildly offensive to be thought of as a creature of habit. I feel like it implies I don’t have the ability to think for myself. That my actions are somehow not mine, or that I am being compared to a robot. Or something.
And yet, when I apply being a creature of habit to what I actually do, it’s obvious that frequency helps me. I find it easiest to write here than on any other of my websites. Why? Probably because I do it most often, I have my flows, my habits, my voice. And it goes quickly.
So how do you get this habit? Is it just a case of buckling down and doing it? Do you have to experiment a lot to know what your voice is? And when is a habit too comfortable and should be changed?
And how much do I have to apologise for using so many question marks in this post?
