I'm not a huge motivational quotes or inspirational person, but I thought this might be a nice occasional feature for the blog. Will I do it every week? I'm not sure, but let's start off, try to set the habit (see what I did there?), and see how I do.
I firmly believe that the only way to achieve all those goals that I set up every year and every month is to work on them every day. Goals are only achievable by systems and habits that we establish and follow-through on.
How long do you need to establish these habits? Good question! There are lots of great online resources for helping you make a positive change a habit. I personally don't do a lot of 30-day challenges because I don't feel it sets enough of a habit for me though it may for others. I need a lot more than 30 days to make something a life-long habit! When I set a goal, I know I have to make that habit a part of my life every day, or I'll never stick with it.
So this quote from Robert Collier, a self-help and motivational speaker, is very appropriate today.
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out.”
This year I'm setting new habits and systems that I hope will carry me through to 2020 and beyond. I'm trying to write every day on a small side project, walk or stretch every day, be mindful of what I eat every day.
