Is beBee Becoming a Habit Fractal?
I enjoy reading and the exchange of ideas with interested readers. I used to spend good times reading posts on other platforms and posting on them as well. All of a sudden I found myself much more immersed in beBee and almost solely publishing posts on its site.
Changing habits is not easy. Changing life style and the way we choose to live is even more difficult. I believe lifestyle is the aggregation of our habits and this determines our lifestyles. For example, if I have the habit of eating healthy food combined with the habit of taking my weight regularly to keep a good health then I have an emerging lifestyle based on how my habits interact.
A habit might develop into a series of cascaded habits to form a fractal of habits. To explain, when I am on bee daily then this behavior turns into a habit. If I see selected posts by few bees then I read them right away. If I comment on those buzzes repeatedly then I am building a habit. If I also share the same buzzes then again I am developing a habit. Those habits result in my lifestyle.
The question that I haven't yet answered is pertaining to why did I almost substitute one lifestyle with another in a short time span? Habits hate vacuum and if one habit disappears another habit forms to fill the vacuum. Why did I make the change and leave behind me a fractal of habits? Surely, money is not an issue, but then why?
I believe that we change when two forces act simultaneously. One force is feeling restless where you are because of feeling the injustice. If a platform highlights always the same authors, the majority of authors shall feel ignored. Bad feelings may accumulate to reach a high level of dissatisfaction. In the absence of a suitable substitute the "disheartened authors" shall become prisoners of complaining-based habits. And those habits could lead to bad lifestyles. This may reflect in the negativity with which they comment on.
The other supporting factor is when substitute and powerful publishing platforms comes to life and live to its potential. The complaining authors and readers shall travel to the new platform without hesitation. It is creating a strong internal motivation that made the migration easier
Birds migrate when the weather becomes or close to become harsh and when food is of short supply. It is survival at risk. We humans migrate not only from one country to the other, but also from one platform to another. It seems when we have developed strong motivation that we migrate.
Why then the migration from a bad habit to a good one is difficult? My view is the lack of internal motivation. Like we migrated to beBee with strong motivation from within, we need same motivation to quit smoking cigarettes, as an example.
beBee realizes a great fact that to connect you have to be in the right place, with the right orientation and with no hindrances to accessibility to where you are. It is the same with chemical reactions. No reaction shall happen if molecules (bees) are distant, with the wrong orientation and with hindrances for molecules to interact. Those bees may choose their hives (right location) with clear purposes and with no restrictions allow for bees to connect and react. This is a formula for success.�������i���
