One New Habit

As everyone is taking time off to enjoy Labor Day, it’s a great time to think about something disruptive in your life. If there was a camera on your life, it is likely that your routine is predictable – both how you work and play. I like getting some distance from the grind to reflect and think about where I am headed and whether my actions are lining up.

It’s hard to work on so many projects at one time with any decent results. For me, I like taking the time to reflect and work in one new habit that will make a high impact on my work. It will be the one thing that gets integrated over the next month.

Perhaps, your own work feels like it is mere treading water. What if you were able to integrate one new habit that would change outcomes in your life? Here are some ideas that may work for your lifestyle:

If you break your life down by weeks and days and steadily do a repeatable, high-value action, you will be in a completely different place in a year or a month. It’s cause and effect. You increase your probabilities for opportunities to be useful. You will be positioned and ready for when opportunity does knock.

Otherwise, the next down time comes by and you have little to show towards the big goals. Why not be intentional and integrate a new habit that will make a long-term difference?

What could your new habit look like? What would make an impact?
