Best laid plans  26/90

Blog Post created by PastTense on Jan 3, 2020

If anybody is keeping track (and I am) I owe 3 blog posts that I missed in order to make 90 posts in 90 days.

How did I manage to miss 3 blog posts?  It all comes down to inadequate planning.

I knew we would be on the road for two days but thought I could hot spot my laptop to the internet and write while we drove.  As it turns out, we didn't have quite the cell phone coverage I thought we had.  I kept losing the signal and had to start over.  In fairness, I only did it twice before I gave up in frustration.  So I had a plan, but it didn't work.

One post was missed because I let the day get away from me.

Poor planning and no planning leads to failure as soon the REAL LIFE starts to happen.

You know what?  That has happened to me in previous quit attempts, too.  I thought I had a plan; but the plan disintegrated as soon as I hit a bump.

 

I wrote down my quit plan.  And when I felt myself entering dangerous areas, I challenged myself to 90 posts in 90 days to make sure I was anchored to this site.  I am learning from my mistakes.  I am course-correcting as I go.

I am here to keep the quit.
