We are what we repeatedly do. That is a fact. If you do something long enough it eventually becomes a habit. It has been proven time and time again that 70% of what we do everyday is habitual. Meaning most of the things we do, we don’t even have to think about doing them. When is the last time you had to think about how to put your toothpaste on your toothbrush. Or you had to think about how you will turn your car on. Or when you get into the office, you had to think about how to turn on your computer. The fact is you probably don’t have to think about anything of those things, you just do it. It is a habit.
So what if you changed your habits some? What if you tried to form some new habits? What would that do for your career? Your passion? Your excitement? The psychological change could be reinvigorating for you.
This morning I worked out, pretty habitual for me, I am now sitting in the same chair at the same table, at the same coffee shop, with the same mocha as I do everyday. Tomorrow, I will sit someone else. Just to break the habit, who knows what might happen.
