“Depending on what they are, our habits will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.”
Sean Covey

If you want to improve your life and make it an AMAZING one, start by implementing one or perhaps even all of the habits listed below.

Start by getting your mindset right and implement as you go.

It’s the little things you do every day that counts and builds up in the end.

But make sure you stick with them in order to make them your habits.

Because we are, indeed, as quoted above, the things we do repeatedly.

  • How can this be adapted for a woman working a 3:30pm-1am shift and running a house and wanting to write.

  • Mia, this was such an enjoyable read, I’m really liking the fact to see so many people growing, improving and striving to be better every single day.

    I especially loved what you wrote, I’m going to quote you, I hope that’s ok… 😛
    ”Start by getting your mindset right and implement as you go. It’s the little things you do every day that counts and builds up in the end. ”

    It’s crazy how powerful these tiny habits are. Over time the impact they have on our lives is incredible.

    These are my favorite 3 habits from the 51 you listed:
    – Prioritize your to-do list and go after the most difficult task first
    This one helped me a lot. When you do the most difficult task first, you just want to keep going, everything else seems so easy!

    – Prioritize your health by eating healthy and clean food
    When you eat clean, your mind is clean. The work you produce is so much better, agree?

    – Just start, because tomorrow is not a day of the week
    One task at a time, one day at a time. If you start every single day with that mentality you’ll be shocked at the progress you made in the past month. It’s one of the best feelings. 🙂

    Keep up the excellent work,

    regards,

    – Benjamin Strusnik
