The benefit of good habits (or in the breaking of bad habits) is in their longevity. Eating one salad isn’t going to balance out years of fried food and sugar. Nor brushing your teeth once isn’t going to win you the best smile award.
But one good act is the step in the right direction.
This is straight forward idea of habits we all understand that on some level.
But when we pile on too much at once (too many habits, too much pressure, and/or massive amounts of expectations), we can easily get derailed and give up.
A good habit has legs. The best ones (the ones that work and provide meaning to our lives) are the habits that are live long.
Something you can reach for (and an ambition worth pursuing)
Something that you can sustain over the long-term.
Something that if you miss a day, you can pick right back up tomorrow. Because as much as today is the only things that matters, what adds up to a life changing benefit is consistent effort and dedication to the habit.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
