43 Folders writes about Your Personal Suck, i.e., “You totally suck at something, and it secretly drives you nuts every g%^d@*ned day.” Find something that you really want to improve, and improve it.

The personal suck that’s been gnawing at me most lately is my lack of discipline on lots of small projects. I remember to clean the house and work on Otherspace, but I don’t keep up with practicing Japanese or drawing. I’d like to find ways of integrating those into my daily life.

I’ve thought of rewarding myself for doing these things, but I resist that because of the scale of juggling rewards for half a dozen little daily practices. I’m pretty good at doing things at certain times of the day, though that seems to have reached a practical limit. I can do a bunch of things in the morning before I go to work, but I get home at odd hours.

I don’t have an easy answer, but I’m contemplating possible solutions.
