The good ones though? They are often a brass ring.We eye it as we go round and round on the bad-habit carousel. We see it there, standing out amongst all the iron rings – all shiny and hopeful. Then we reach out when we pass by, sometimes getting a fingertip on it, sometimes even hooking a finger on it. But only practice, timing, perseverance, and action (aka WORK) allows us to grab hold of that good-habit ring and hang on to it. One habit that I have really, really, REALLY been wanting to do consistently has been regular writing – like, a daily writing time. But (always a “but” in there, eh?), if I’m honest – all talk, no action is the name of my game on so many of the ideas swirling in my brain.
Except it’s not.Not when I REALLY want to do something, of course. People do what serves them. I’ve had some recent experiences that have kept alive my writing goals for this website, my half-written book, my freelance writing for Twiniversity.com (links to my Twiniversity articles are at the bottom of this article), and several other creative ideas. But, I think that often I try to do too much at one time so it doesn’t stick. One thing that has helped me recently work toward making small habit changes is Not Your Average Fitness Course. This is a six-week daily email course about how to implement tiny changes each day to make the good habits you want to create STICK! It is affordable and the private Facebook group is supportive, encouraging, and motivating.
