Early this week I googled "self-discipline" and I found Steve Pavlina's blog series on this topic. I read the first entry and got pretty enthusiastic about his approach. Before reading much more, I got sidetracked to another of his topics, Polyphasic sleep, which is perhaps one of his longest series. He describes in it his experiment with substantially reducing the amount of sleep he required by taking comparatively brief naps every few hours. What struck me was Steve's attitude of try-anything open-mindedness.
From there I got involved in trying to apply his concepts to my own life. Suffice it to say that I'm still enthusiastic, and, according to Marlene this is having a pretty positive effect on what I'm getting done. However, I've also gotten all tangled up in this mass of new ideas. How do I apply all of this to myself? I decided that as a first step, I'll write at least one blog entry each day chronicling my progress, or lack of progress. So - here's todays' entry - the first one anyhow.
