I had the same thing happen this last quarter with my zazen. I set a goal to meditate for an hour every day. I usually do 20 minutes.
At 20 minutes, I never miss a day.
With an hour goal, I missed days all the time because I couldn't find an entire hour to spare in the day.
@lordbowlich So pardon if this thinking is unwelcome my degree is in economics. But for the meditating it seems like the marginal benefit of the extra 40 minutes of meditating just wasn't worth it. But human brains are weird, and want an all or nothing approach. In this case, being able to mark it off your list or not. making a balance to a more achievable cost/benefit ratio switched the flip from always no to always yes.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
