Because I don’t want to stop writing after 30 days, I’m continuing on.

Momentum is important, and after gaining it, I just didn’t want to allow myself to stop. I’ve wanted to become a prolific writer for too long for me to give this up now.

So the writing sails on.

That’s true for writing, and it’s true for any habit.

It’s called habit inertia. “An object in motion stays in motion unless an external force acts upon it.”

When dealing with habit inertia, feelings of laziness, demotivation, and fatigue causes friction that slows down your habit momentum.

Our motivation is the initial push that helps our habit hit the ground running, and we need to push it forward constantly while it’s still not actually a strong habit of ours.

Some people say it takes 90 days to form a habit, some say 28, I say that’s all BS and numbers are arbitrary.

It takes however long it takes you to reduce that friction. So keep doing it until it becomes second nature.

Keep. Moving. Forward.
