This article on the Entrepreneur website got me thinking. It is based on Tom Corley’s book: Rich Habits – The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals
Do you do things the way you do because you have always done it this way or because you have found that it is the most productive way for you to do it?
For me the easiest thing is to keep on doing things the way I always have, but that does not always lead to the best results. Then it sometimes becomes really hard to make changes, because it takes about 21 days to form a new habit.
It is easy to make changes to the new way for the first few days, but then we often fall off the wagon. You really have to want to make the change because the end result will make your life so much more satisfying, fuller and richer. When you have that vision and goal in mind, you can’t but help do it the new way.
