Does it work that way for you? In addressing behavioral issues, do you find that DD is more efficacious in fostering good behavior and the formation of good habits than in stomping out bad habits? Now, I realize that just about every behavior a wife may want to address probably can be characterized as either “bad” behavior or the absence of “good” behavior. For example, is failure to do an assigned chore, like doing the dishes, bad behavior, or is it the absence of a good habit of cleaning up as required. To address that, another spin on the question could be, do you find that DD is better at getting you to add a behavior or establish a good habit than it is in getting you to eliminate a bad behavior or break a bad habit?
The result? My alcohol consumption as dropped dramatically. In fact, over the last two weeks I’ve had alcohol only twice, both involving video-conference meetings with teams or customers that were expressly designed to be “virtual happy hours” just to keep people connected. I'm also eating a lot better than usual; kind of the opposite of what others seem to be experiencing or are worrying about experiencing:
So, it’s been nice getting some experiential verification that work really is the driver of a fair amount of my bad behavior and, when that environment is changed I revert to a healthier way of living.
