Habits Tend to Surprise

Added on by Sam Davidson.

Before we know it, we've developed a new habit. Funny how this happens. 

Whether we're biting our nails, taking the same route to work every day, smoking, always eating lunch with the same people, or getting our news from the same source, we very quickly and easily become creatures of habits (both good and bad). 

Let's use our natural docility for something good. Challenge yourself to start a good habit, knowing that it just might take hold. 

You could start going to the gym, begin your day by reading great literature, open staff meetings with meditation, start asking a new friend to lunch each week - your choice is wide open. 

Just remember that what seems daunting is actually anything but. Before you know it, for better or worse, you'll be hooked. 

Get hooked on what's better.
