Why does it seem that bad habits are so easy to adopt and stay with, and good habits are so hard? Why is it that good habits are so easy to abandon, and bad ones hang on like dandruff?
Habits seem to anchor to our LEASTness mindset:
What takes the least time? There's habit for that.
What takes the least effort? There's a habit for that.
What causes the least discomfort? There's a habit for that.
What helps us avoid making difficult decisions? There's a habit for that.
What if we made it a habit to think about our habits? And to quite intentionally unhook from some of the bad ones. And to purposefully build into our day/calendar/thoughts/systems/relationships a few habits that move us toward who we really want to be?
No time like the present...
