olw: habit| 8.27.19 …


Google’s definition of habit: “a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up”  – to which I add: especially one that is hard to create and sustain … ’cause as Robert Burns says (and I frequently quote) :

“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft agley

This day, I planned to focus my time and energy – before 12 noon – on these things:

  • post office – to mail 2 packages ~ accomplished …
  • write today’s blog post ~ it is now 3:30 pm and in process
  • stitch on something: don’t just walk into my sewing studio, fondle the fabric or fiddle with a project and then leave ~ hah! I’ve walked past the open door dozens of times but not gone in…so, I guess that counts for somewhat accomplished? 

There are still 4 items on my agenda and the clock steadily ticks… I think I’ll go for a walk and return to my agenda with a clear head, new perspective and hopefully renewed energy.

In case you’re wondering what happened today: I tried to sign up for a new online class and couldn’t log into my account to process the registration. I finally wound up having to create another account.

Joining Juliann and friends for another One Little Word (olw) update!

  1. I think that the things I learned last week with Tiny Habits has been amazing at opening my eyes to how easy little changes are. I love your persistence… truly!


  2. I’m intrigued that the definition of Habit should be somewhat(?) perceived(?) negative. I like to think of habits as constructive, positive routines that help us succeed in what we want accomplish. hummmm…
