I have mentioned it here and have been talking with a friend about how it takes 21 days to make something a habit. It doesn’t matter what it is, good or bad, 21 days is pretty much the time for your brain to latch on to something and make it routine.
Every new year we hear a lot of talk about people either making resolutions or breaking resolutions. I’ve already mentioned that I am not making resolutions but that I have a plan. Well, part of my plan is to change how I do things. It’s not a big stretch to think that making good habits is the first step to real change.
I did a quick check of the calendar and discovered that there are 51 weeks left in 2013, divided by three that’s 17 good habit forming sections. I am going to make a list of 17 new and improved habits that I want to develop this year. This list will be a work in progress as the year goes on.
Tomorrow I will start the first three week time period. I will call them phases, mostly because that sounds groovy and kind of sci fi-ish. I will let you know how it goes.
