As you age, you begin to notice echoes of your parents in your day-to-day behavior. This is particularly difficult if, like me, one those parents was a waste of carbon. There are times when I am surprised or even amused at things — for example, I talk to cats the same way my mother does (same tone, same words, same rhythms of speech) — and there are times when I am horrified by things, like when I do or say anything like my father would have done.

In the interest of being successful at the overhaul I’m enacting on my life, I’ve realized that I need to combine small changes to existing habits using habit stacking rather than trying to make one gigantic change and eventually failing at it. “Eating a healthy diet” isn’t something that happens overnight.
— Jack Kerouac
I Never Finish Anyth
A great piece on the execution of ideas.
