No, truthfully, one of my goals in establishing this new blog is to keep myself motivated and on track in finding new employment and figuring out some large chunks of the rest of my life. As such, I intended to post in a disciplined manner and on a frequent basis; it lasted for all of three days. But that’s of course no reason to abandon the enterprise altogether (not that I was considering such an (in)action anyway); I’ve always been better at following the spirit of the law rather than the letter of the law and in this case there weren’t even any letters!
Another, perhaps better, quote for the post’s title might have been this one from Bruno Bettelheim:
The only effective discipline is self-discipline, motivated by the inner desire to act meritoriously in order to do well in one’s own eyes, according to one’s own values, so that one may feel good about oneself may “have a good conscience.”
–B. Bettelheim, A Good Enough Parent, 1987.
But, in this blog I organically established a pattern of using a literary quote for titles and (mostly) using fine artworks for initial illustrations, so… by choosing the Shakespeare quote (Richard III, V.iii.1) I’m actually being disciplined and setting a good example for myself.
New post to follow anon.
