A few days ago, I posted the quiz, Are you an abstainer or a moderator?
As one reader pointed out in the comments, the abstainer/moderator split seems related to another tendency, at least in me — that I find it’s easier to do something every day than to do it some days.
For instance, I post to my blog six days a week. I take reading notes every day. I write in my one-sentence journal every day. Many people have told me that they find it easier to exercise when they exercise every day.
If I try to do something four days a week, I spend a lot of time arguing with myself about whether today is the day, or tomorrow, or the next day; did the week start on Sunday or Monday; do I deserve a break, did yesterday “count,” etc.
