93. Habits: An appointment with the better you
Today we explore the concept of breaking out of the ‘average’ mold and embracing personal transformation.
The Power of Reading: We discussed the transformative impact of daily reading. It’s a simple habit with profound effects, expanding our knowledge and perspectives. Why not start with a recommended book list?
Habits as Appointments: We acknowledged the struggle of maintaining habits, but emphasized their importance. Treat them like appointments in your schedule, and watch them become ingrained over time.
Sharing Your Journey: We believe in the power of community. Sharing your challenges and goals with others can increase your chances of success and accountability. Don’t hide your aspirations!
Extreme Accountability: We explored the idea of using accountability and even punishment as motivators. However, we cautioned against the trap of constantly generating new ideas without follow-through.
Disrupting Routines: We stressed the importance of being aware of our routines and disrupting those that don’t serve us. For example, mindlessly using a phone can be replaced with more productive habits.
Designing Your Environment: We discussed the benefits of physical movement in unlocking new thinking and the importance of designing our environment to support our goals.
Expanding Your Circle: We emphasized the need to attend events and workshops outside of your comfort zone, initiate new friendships, and audit your circle of influence. Surround yourself with people who inspire and uplift you.
Hiring to Grow: We discussed the practicality of hiring someone to help grow your business. It’s a big step, but with the right planning and support, it can free up your time and generate income.
Pursuing Discomfort: We explored the idea of seeking discomfort as a means of personal growth. It’s about pushing your boundaries, not reckless behavior.
Remember, small changes can lead to significant growth and success.
To your success,
