Hey everyone, I hope you've been well. It's been a quick minute since I've posted here, so think of this as a fresh start! However, my lack of activity actually helps build the point of this post. It can be SO easy to stray from important daily tasks, trust me I know. I should be given an award for procrastination, and an honorable mention for putting things off. I tend to write off the less pressing things on my daily to-do list as tomorrow's business. I mean, if it doesn't require my immediate attention, it can wait right?
Everything that we do on a daily basis is considered a habit. Remembering to brush one's teeth, waking up for work, and even eating three times a day are all ingrained daily activities that we have repeatedly taught ourselves to partake in. Completing other things in a timely matter counts as a habit too, and straying from it can hurt your work ethic in the long run. It's true! Your overall effectiveness can be drastically decreased if you stop doing it on a regular basis. The European Journal of Psychology dictates that a habit takes an average of 66 days to reaffirm. That's two damn months too many! Take it from a true procrastinator: Save yourself some work, and keep up with your practices.
P.S. I promise to make more impressionable posts in the near future, but hey, here's a start, 65 days to go. At least the cover art for this post is kinda cool, right?
Things to Remember: Form that habit, Stay on task, and don't break your work streak.
