Think are so much easier to make happen when its a habit.
Have you noticed that often when you break a habbit, it suddenly seems so much more difficult to carry out, though you had easily and routinely performed the activity earlier.
To do things on time is a habbit. Not doing it on time is also a habbit.
Check your twitter timeline, you blog post frequency. Things done regularly get done, and the rest simply get ignored though there might have been bandwidth to do it.
Are you late for the daily morning office cab everyday?
Do you read the newspaper everyday?
Are you late for lunch with your colleagues everyday?
Are you late in your project deliverables every time?
Are you late in coming back home from office regularly?
Do you miss brushing you teeth in the night often?
Do your clear your google reader backlog everyday?
After all, what an inspirational book (or a how-to-lose-weight or a how-to-make-money ) do is to provide guidelines.
If it doesn’t get done, it doesn’t get done.

Giving life to an old and abandoned blog is called reblogging.
I thought about independently and wished to coin this new term today, but alas, found that Raiedzall had already done it 6 months ago here.
Good! If not for the free and wide internet, wouldn’t many invention efforts be duplicated?
How many man years would have been spent on re-inventing the wheel?
and how much more power given to the centralized repositories of knowledge ?
The internet is the greatest accelerator of mankind’s progress.
I hope I am at least the first one to make this quote 😉
More thoughts –
Blog posts get written easily when you sit down to write them and start
Maybe i’ll try to write every wednesday and sunday.

QOTD (quote of the day)
It is hardly as if women leaders do not wield real power in India. 255 Lok Sabha seats have been won in the 2009 elections by parties where women are the absolute and unchallenged leaders. In spite of this, we have seen no change in the number of women Parliamentarians. The idea of reserving seats for a group is based on the pectation that when they come to power, they will use it to help other less fortunate members of the group. Clearly that expectation has been definitively belied.
