I like routines most of the time, like pressing my coffee in the morning, gravel walks with Tischer and bedtime reading. I also like — and rely upon — prompts to encourage other habits in my life. With this in mind, underneath my computer monitor in my office I keep a few items that I like to have within regular eyesight.
One such item is a small sticker about the size of a hockey puck and depicts sort of a speedometer graphic. It reads: Stoke Meter. The “needle” is buried in the red, at its highest mark.
