I just talked with my brother about synchronicities and how they are different from coincidences. A coincidence is buying two lottery tickets and both have the number 23 on them. A synchronicity is being too late to pick your numbers like you normally do and just buying a random set of numbers, and then realizing that the number you always pick, 23, is one of the numbers on the randomly generated lottery ticket.
I found it really difficult to write today. I was back in my old habits of stock checking and consuming instead of creating. Besides catching up on AAPL and AMD earnings reports, things I consumed today were coronavirus epidemic, quantum mechanics and psychology, Osaka University’s iPS cell-based heart cell transplant, and impeachment.
Since the lunar cycle is 29 and a half days long, then I think this feels like a good length of time to create a habit. It certainly doesn’t feel like I have created a habit yet. So, with this new belief, I will embrace my habit of writing every day half-way through tomorrow.
