If routine is working against your own goals do something to change it.
Change is good! We just have to learn how to do it.
You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge, so today, try to examine of some of your routines that might be sabotaging your dreams. Do you have any?
Find the problem.
Over the next week, pay attention to things you do automatically.
For each situation you identify, figure out ways you can fine-tune your routines to make them a little more goal oriented.
Take action little by little.
Example 1: If you have been trying to fit exercise into your day wake up 10 minutes earlier two days per week, then 3, then 4. Suddenly it will become a habit to wake up earlier even 20 minutes every day and you will get those sacred minutes for your exercise routine as part of your new routine.
Example 2: If you’re trying to save money and you have a habit of buying a coffee from the Coffee Shop every morning, why not having your coffee at home instead? You can do this twice a week and you will be saving $5, then 4 times a week and you will be saving $10. If you do it $5 days a week you will start saving around $50 dollars a month very easily.
It won’t be easy at first, but with a little tweaking here and there, you really can find ways to change your routine to help you meet your goals. And that’s what we want, don’t we?
