Some time ago, I decided to build a new habit - put out a piece of writing every day.

So far, it’s been the hardest habit to build. It is also one of the most rewarding. It is a kind of a mental exercise, that keep thoughts clearer and mind ‘fitter’.

It is said that it takes 21 days to make habit permanent. I didn’t find it true. Twenty-one is a nice number, and has a nice ring to it, but it can take longer, and be much harder than it seems.

Still, it is an essential skill, and I think it should be taught in schools. Along with time management basics, introduction to business, and the principles of psychology.
