Creating a new habit for productivity
1. What is the habit you want to adopt?
Get very clear on what it is you want and the positive impact it will have on your life.
2. Create the simplest version of that habit.
Thinking about the habit, pull it back to a single, easy step. E.g I want to mediate everyday…pull it back I will sit in the spot that I want to mediate just for 1 min and just breath deeply with eyes open and move on.
3. Test it: are you consistently doing this simple step?
Allow at least a week. If you are consistently doing this new habit it’s time to move to the next step, if you’re not then it might not be the right habit, or the step is too big and you need to simplify it even more.
4. Next steps.
Even when you move to the next steps, remain reserved and don’t jump too big just because it’s going well. Going well is great, then to jump too far ahead could spoil your hard work. If you do and you notice you’re not doing it consistently then it’s okay just go back to the last step and repeat it and then the next step after stripping it back to what you had done.
5. You got it!
Great news you have a habit to help you with your productivity! When your practicing your habit fully, consistently, remember to always revaluate it and see if it’s still serving you well.
