The Best Time To Create A Habit Is Right Now

Good morning! I'm currently going through the process of creating (or recreating) a habit. To be completely transparent, it isn't the easiest thing to do as it requires my focused attention and the cutting off of something that used to take its place.

As I take the steps to build momentum, I'm just doing the action in the order that I intend to continue once I'm on auto pilot. As a refresher, all habits have a trigger, routine, and reward.

So, what habit do I want to adopt? What happens right before the desired routine (trigger)? What happens after (reward)?

From a high level perspective, just start taking action today. It probably won't be perfectly executed, but once you start don't quit. Then, as you find it gets easier to continue, make small adjustments that fine tune the habit. Eventually, you will be running at full speed and knocking out all kinds of milestones. Remember, don't quit!

Finally, as I look down the road, understand that things will happen that may serve as a road block or speed bump (holidays, vacations, illness, or even a new responsibility), but through it all keep going.

Are you ready to create a new habit? Maybe you just want to establish an old one. Well, right now is that time. Get up and get going. There is no time like the present.

Let's get it!
