I spent day 100 looking back and pulling together 100 things I've learned. Day 200 feels even more momentous and I find myself looking forward. What do the next 165 days have in store for me? Where is all this headed? What will I do at the end? What about next year? (I've jotted down ideas but suggestions are welcome!) I've never really been someone who makes goals or plans very far ahead. This 'little' project may have changed that about me. I find myself thinking if I can do this, what else can I do?
I remember when my oldest was a baby, I was reading all those parenting books trying to find my way in a very new world. Getting him to sleep was my biggest issue and the topic that I read about the most. I was struck by the words "sleep begets sleep" in some baby book I ran across. That was a completely new idea. Weren't you suppose to be completely worn out and tired in order to go to sleep easily? Now they were telling that wasn't the case. It was completely foreign that the routine of sleep might work better than exhaustion.
Today I wonder how many other things this idea might apply to. Do creative habits beget creative habits? How about just habits in general? Perhaps creativity begets creativity. Projects seem to beget more projects. On day 200 I'm wondering ... a year of creative habits begets _____________ .
