A recent lesson in the Alive Time Stoic challenge was about creating a daily schedule and sticking to it. And through that effort, enable a routine’s benefits by committing a schedule, fended times/blocks of what/when, to paper.

Like children who respond well to boundaries, adults too can benefit from daily routines. For anyone chasing a creative endeavor, you innately know it’s all about consistency through daily practice. Scheduling time for writing, or sketching, or reading creates an expectation and anticipation for your mind to shift into focus on these activities at these moments.
