This is quite informative. I’m somewhat opposite and wish I would change that. I know I could and should, but don’t. I spend 80% of my work day writing or painting and by far not enough promotion. It’s foolish because this is how I pay my bills. I need to bring attention to myself. Every day I’m all like, I’ll post on Instagram, Twitter- except I never do.

I’m going to keep your article bookmarked as a reminder I’m not the only one who struggles with balance even if we’re not trying to balance the same thing. Although, I am in the bad habit of, my phone is ringing- doesn’t answer it. I need to read that editor’s email- has 4,338 unread emails in inbox.

Ironically, we take in more information about changing habits than we do actually changing the habit. That’s how the human mind is designed.
