Status Report for Creating a Writing Habit

Its All About Measurement

“I have been struck again and again about how important measurement is to improving the human condition.”~ Bill Gates

“Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.” ~  H. James Harrington

Measurements inform me about my progress to creating a writing habit.
  1. Step one: Set a baseline  for future measurements. Three hundred words every two days. I have accomplished this by establishing a new habit. When I sit down to write, I replace the internal image of a black rectangle with the image of a yellow rectangle.
  2. Step two: Set a new goal for the next ten days: writing 300 words per day for five days a week.
