Each of us has some sort of goals in life.
Most commonly: win the lottery, don't get fired, avoid eating chocolate around noon...
Few of us, sadly, reach all of them.
We are secretly upset when our intentions don't materialize. Intuitively, we either submerge into depression or self-criticism. Or, the other easier route: denial, excuse-making, and blame.
I know I often do these things.
But what if instead of looking at the end result, we focus on the set of daily actions to apply a fix. The activities responsible for pretty much everything that happens throughout our day. Yes, I'm talking about our habits.
We make lists for all sorts of crazy stuff.
Why not make your own list of good habits?
Crafting a document consisting of good habits won't only help you have good habits - duh. But also, help you avoid having bad habits.
For instance, you'll no longer wonder what to do when you don't know what to do. You'll just pick an item from the "good habit list" and prevent yourself from drowning in pointless activities.
You are interested but you're not sure what to add to your list?
