Breaking good and bad habits.
Confession time ... it's been 8 days since my last blog post.
The next few posts I'm uploading in the sequence of time they would have been available had I been able to keep up my good habits.
What is a habit?
I like to think of it as a ritual, a repetitive task that brings comfort or challenge.
I find it easier to break good habits than bad ones, and much easier to start bad habits than start a good habit.
Why is that?
I think we're all drawn to the easy way out. The habit of grabbing a coffee on the way to work and spending $4 rather than waking up earlier and taking the time to make your own fresh cup of caffeine.
You have to be willing to shift your mindset around habits.
Every morning I make my bed. The first time I decided I was going to do that I struggled a lot, I found it a waste of time, but the more I forced myself to do it, the better I was at doing it out of instinct.
I started the 100-day-project to build the best habits. Trying something new, thinking more creatively and committing to that ritual.
I've learned a lot from my last two 100 day projects, and I felt the guilt of not keeping up with the blog every day for the last week.
I'm here to pick up where I left off, and not give up.
