Habits and consistency to me have always been about pushing yourself PAST laziness and getting yourself just to simply “do things.”
And they are...But…
They’re also about knowing yourself and your limits. Understanding what it takes to keep a habit sustainable LONG TERM.
I always get too caught up in the excitement of a new project. I bite off more than I can chew, I commit to the fanciest version of an atomic habit that I can think of, then I flop on that habit after a couple of weeks.
The thing about getting fancy, is that fancy breaks.
Understand what you need to survive, grow, and succeed.
And just do that.
Fancy additions to an atomic habit may get you a slight glimmer of attention, but that attention fades. The long term benefit of a habit is its consistency.
Focus on the fundamentals (aka the bare minimum that you need to succeed) and MASTER them.
This is a reminder to myself and I hope it serves some benefit to you =)
Also, if you don’t know what I mean by “atomic habit,” here’s an explanation from bald Jesus, James Clear.
Anyway, here’s my life in a photo dump from the past couple weeks while I HAVEN’T been too consistent.
Also, my friend Paul wrote some kind words about me on his blog. Read his kind words and all his other words here. Paul is great. Thanks Paul =)
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
