Lately I have been reading and listening to a couple of talks on routines. Most people seem to agree that our habits make us the people we are today. You cannot change your life without creating new habits and reviewing the small things you do daily. The most obvious example is the way our bodies look – by looking at somebody you can often tell their eating and exercise habits (or lack of).
Looking at myself now I can see why I am the way I am and it is because of thought patterns I adopted as a child. During my teens I decided that I was going to be spontaneous in life and therefore refused to plan ahead. This thinking sort of worked in secondary school, I started to spot holes during university but now I own my own business – it has blown up in my face. I decided that I wanted to work for myself and adventure into the world of business but the way I live has caused an issue. Because my desire for creative autonomy and financial freedom is bigger than the the pull of laziness – I have had to change.
That buzz word ‘change’ – so big to achieve all at once but major headway is made when we become convicted to master our small everyday behaviour. I have had to ( and am still in the process of reconditioning my mind).
It is Must do Monday. Join me in making a habit of putting first things first and killing procrastination!
