…is all you need to master a habit, according to some experts.
Some people with “New Years Resolutions” are already rejoicing now for they have developed a new habit.
Some are probably a bit frustrated because they failed to stick with their goals.
Unfortunately, some developed a bad habit.
I am “all of the above.”
I have maintained a day to day project for 21 days (a surprise). I am fast-food free for 21 days. I have been exercising almost everyday for 21 days. I have been a good consumer for 21 days and I finally opened a bank account.
I have tried to wake up at 5am, but the weather is really a bed weather. I have tried not to buy an article of clothing but the Pajamas were really tempting (blame the bed weather again). I have tried not to drink a cup of coffee in Starbucks but I am dreaming for Chai Latte every night (yes, still about the bed weather).
Either way, I still feel balanced. I am not justifying my failures. It’s just that I want the best of both worlds. Being a failure will always complement success, vice versa.
Screw the 21-day rule. Go for spontaneity. Go for balance.
