Two-Bit Tuesday: January 2, 2018
Happy New Year, everyone! With resolutions fresh on our collective minds, here are my Two Bits for this week:
"Habit is a cable; we weave a thread of it each day, and at last we cannot break it." -Horace Mann
This year, I'm approaching resolutions differently than I have in the past. My intention this time is to cultivate a couple good habits. My focus is on the process, the repetition, the habit and routine-building. Not so much on an end result.
More on all that later...
Don't be a dog.
Think about a dog chasing a cat. What's he going to do if he actually catches that cat? I don't think he even knows. He just thinks it's a good idea to chase the cat, so he does it. Then he gives up as soon as the chase gets hard or he loses interest.
How many of our resolutions are cats we temporarily feel like chasing?
