What Do Your Habits Say About You?

When looking at your daily habits, what do they say about you?  Are you hard-working and getting things accomplished?  Do your habits need some tweaking, or are you procrastinating too much?  There is usually a tell-tale sign.

I’ve had ups and downs with these “to do” lists myself.

In life lists are common. We make laundry lists, grocery lists, budgets, schedules, and we should also make lists for our goals.

When our children were small, we tried to implement this habit with them.  We gave them small notepads, and told them they could choose what they wanted, but they had to write and complete at least three goals a day.  They didn’t always like it, but they did do them.  The bad part is, we failed to keeping it going.

As you see in the picture above, the “make up, coffee, and the rest” list will likely guarantee your failure.  It is not specific enough.  Sit down and write out what you really need to do, and continue working on these daily habits to get them to stick.

Start with a few goals and then build upon them.  Three is a good amount to start with.  Other high-energy people will list ten or more goals to do each day.  But, start small and grow your habits.  Persistence is the key.  Make as many goals as you know you will stick with.  To get a clear vision, make a spread sheet of where you are, and where you want to go.  This is also helpful.  You can find more options here.

No matter where you start, write your goals out to develop your habits, and then readjust to fit your needs.

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”

—Zig Ziglar

Habits are important for success.  Let’s work on writing our goals today.

Have a good day!

  1. Hi BG,

    A list of goals is great but I always seem to fall short of them. Either I find something that’s not on the list or I’ve added too much and it just seems to go on and on.

    I need to discipline myself better at this because I know it does work.

  2. Hi Monna,

    I do understand. I have had my battles with lists…but when I do them, I tend to get more accomplished. And I usually do the same too, either
    add more or take some off. It’s a hard habit to get into for me also, but I know it’s worth it. Thanks for commenting and sharing. <3
