We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle
Recently, someone asked me if I had made any New Years resolutions. They wanted to know, "are you having any success?"
In fact, yes, I had written down LOTS of things I wanted to accomplish in the New Year. There were places I wanted to visit, new habits I wanted to create, other habits I wanted to break and routines I wanted to establish.
Here is part of my New Year Resolutions / Goals list (in no particular order):
Become a morning person
Give up diet soda 90% of the time
Read one book a week
Clean out email box
Write a book
Walk dogs daily
Plan and take a SpaceA family vacation
Run a 10k
As for my success in each of these areas, I'm taking baby steps and working to stay focused. I've had some ups and downs, but Im determined to keep going.
Some of the things on my list are easier to accomplish than others. I've been pretty successful at giving up diet soda 90% of the time, but on the other hand becoming a morning person is proving to take much more effort. I'm currently wrestling with the idea of having two cups of coffee to help with process.
