I want to talk about cementing the wave of dynamic quality into a static quality that can stick.
A while ago I started a morning routine that has worked out well so far. It started with wanting some steady order and purpose in my first waking hours of the day. This desire to improve was the dynamic quality. I made it stick so far by focusing only on going about the routine.
The morning routine is sticking but I want to make it stick a little better. I tend to be lazy about walking Olive and scooping the cat litter on some weekdays and most weekends. I find myself making excuses. I need these habits to stick better.
I discovered this by accident while browsing reddit casually. This is based on the idea that willpower can be exercized like a muscle can. See this Google Talk by Kelly McGoniagal.
The X-effect is designed to increase our willpower in learning a new habit that we could be struggling with. In other words, it promises to transform dynamic quality into a static quality that sticks.
I started my cards today.
Wish me luck!
