In April, I surreptiously set myself a goal: blog every day. In May, I went public (well, blog-public) with my goal of doing 30 minutes of cardio every day. (So far, so good - by the way.) I am enjoying this incremental approach to change. Maybe oddly - it's much easier for me to do something every day than it is for me to do it three times a week.
I've started reading a lot of "personal development"/"life coaching" type blogs. Recently, I came across a post on zen habits that very much describes my new approach to incorporating good/better habits into my life.
I've taken it to heart, and I'm setting monthly goals: small things I can do every day, habits my "ideal self" would have. For example, my goal in January is to start taking a photograph a day. I really enjoy snapping shots, and I think the discipline of taking a photo a day would up my skeelz. August's goal is to start a medititation practice. I have no goal in December because that time is crazy enough - I need a month to just maintain.
I have one month "open" on the Calendar of Habits. So, I turn it over to you - what habits would you like to incorporate into your life?
