Habit Momentum

Day 316 Week 44 Q4 Monday, November 13, 2023

If you have established the right habits, they can carry you forward throughout the day. You do not have to be solving 1000 problems, you can just follow the steps. You have already set up for yourself providing they are flexible enough to deal with the complexities of life. This is not dealing with the complexities on the near side of them. It is instead having determined how to simplify a complex life by working out what to do and on the far side of complexity, then having a simpler situation.

This is one of the reasons to have an actionable vantage point. On the near side of that point, you may still be wondering what to do because you have not yet found the perspective from which to be able to view the solution set. But once you do get to an action of all vantage point, you can look down and see where you are, and where you would like to be, and therefore paths begin to emerge which are suitable to get you to where you need to go.

Being in that zone where you know what to do and you are doing it and it is not taking that much effort because you have habituated the appropriate behaviors, is a really sweet place to be. For, although there is work ahead of you, and it may not be simple, you know that you can do it, and that you are doing it, and that it will get you where you need to go.

So take care in defining what behaviors you think are worth habituating. For they are the ones which will really make your life a lot easier once you have driven them into your normal daily procedure. Whether it is meditating, journaling, doing breathing exercises, working out, or whatever you have to do to get your head in the right place psychologically, it is well worth doing this.

And once you have figured out how to take care of your psychological requirements, and are truly ready for the day, then it is worth developing some sort of a physical routine to cap it off. As when you enter the day, both psychologically and physically prepared, the chance of having a productive, fulfilling life that day go way up.

If you can get all of this done before your workday, commences, then you were ahead of the game of life. Of course unanticipated problems will show up, but they will not be a problem because you are prepared by having taken the time. To create habit momentum, which can carry you through the day. And as you refined these habits or automatic behaviors, they can carry you through large chunks of your life.
