James Clear is one of my favorite bloggers. He writes a lot about habit formation, and he does the research into what works. He inspires me to do and be better. This keynote speech is about 25 minutes long, and worth it if you need a dose of practical advice for “putting in the reps.” The actions you take provide evidence for who you are, he says. Every action is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. How are you voting for yourself? What identify are you developing?

I took a barn quilt painting class and had a ball.
I did another block in my Block of the Month quilt project.
We went to Indiana to help with our new granddaughter, and on the way experienced the eclipse on the line of totality. (We also met some cool folks from Chicago and California who were pulled off on the same road. They shared photos via email afterwards. Made me love America.)
I listened to the audio book of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North & South, and it made me appreciate a lot of things about my life, about living in America in 2017 vs. Britain in 1855, about opportunities for women, and about my family.
