Papa jones here with great news on taking control! What if I told you changing your habits can help you accomplish your goals.
A book by S.J Scott called habit stacking 127 small changes to improve your health, wealth, and happiness.
I haven’t read the whole book because I sample through kindle before buying. And this was a great skim through. I will be purchasing this right after the graduation season to get it all in.
However so far the author talks about making little adjustments to our daily routine to create a better life. All of which take less than five minutes to complete. Scott speaks of improving our situations by making better choices and creating better habits.
Training our minds to take these steps will improve our relationships, finances, and health! By choosing to start my day by making a healthy breakfast I begin to work on my health. If I wanted a better relationship I would take the time daily to reach out to those in my life, and let them know what they mean to me. Whether it be through a letter, phone call, or simple text message.
To give you the little I got so far these 3 habits will begin to improve those areas in our life we are seeking to change.
This was always my area of weakness since I can remember. If I asked you what organized mean what would be your answer? I would call organized as neat, prompt, and coordinated. I always wanted to be organized except I only had the neat and coordinated part down! Being prompt was always my issue. How do I become organized better? With creating better habits.
Do you stay focused throughout your day on what needs to be done? Do you lose interest in projects that take a while to complete? I realize my main problem with getting my goals accomplished is my lack of focus! The book gives insight on ways to remain focus by creating blocks where task must be complete at certain times of the day and celebrate the small wins as they come. Any goal will get accomplished if we tackle the small goals.
Procrastination is the biggest hindrance to anyone wanting to be successful. I may be the only one but I must say that I will wait to the very last minute to get ready, complete an assignment, or make it to the train station! Don’t wait to do anything if you want something make TODAY the day you get it done! Make right now the time to tell a loved one you love them! Make this moment the moment you decide to stop waiting!
My habits are BAD enough to the point where I make more mistakes and errors that I become ashamed at times! What do we want out of life? How will we get it? Well so far This book gives great insight on how to get on that road to attaining the goals you so desperately seek! Positive actions create positive results so let’s get moving!
