A break in the routine

Today I was almost going to forget my post here. After going to the gym in the morning I jumped straight into a life planning guide I was writing in Roam Research that I was excited about, which meant that I didn’t stick to my regular morning routine.

I’ve relied on instinct and set routines in the past but they can be very fragile when the cues I’m accustomed to aren’t there. I need to follow my instincts AND have a checklist to confirm that I got what I wanted to get done done.

I’m very happy with the life planning guide and I’m eager to create a few more guides that capture my thinking about different topics (such as productivity and habit formation) so that I can turn them into worksheets that are easy for people to fill out.

Looking forward to delving deeper into Roam and its capabilities, as well as exploring ways I can help others (and myself) bridge the knowing-doing gap.


Good thing you remembered to show up here today. Keep going. #Teamstreak

@therealbrandonwilson Yes! I’m very grateful for that.

@jasonleow And it involved lots of writing so it substituted for my morning writing. 🤣
