Pre-records are weird. I have a minor obsession when I do these; I think of Paul F Tompkins and his podcast Spontaneanation. He records it sometimes months in advance and for a while at least seemed to take a great deal of delight in telling people he might be dead when they hear it.
I might be!
It also feels like cheating. If this is supposed to be my daily check-in, tuning up on sobriety and good food and better living, why am I pre-recording it? Isn’t that inherently dishonest?
It kind of is.
I guess I am a bit of a cheater.
But the daily part is the _real_ commitment, and if I listen daily, the check-in function works.
I’ve tried road-recording before. It’s possible, and worth setting up for extended jaunts, but for one-day or two-day things, it’s really a pain in the butt.
So I’m committing, like you are, in this moment, to doing a bit better today than yesterday. Not necessarily a lot better. But a bit better.
Or at least trying.
