I read a lot of articles and books on habits and had this article show up in my google feed, I’m sure thanks to the miracle of one’s surfing habits. I share because I like the author’s tone and the information is always worth reviewing, reconnecting, reprising.
Last month, I wrote about my penchant – a fancy word for habit – for writing notes, ideas, thoughts, oops! – I forgot, on any available piece of paper within arm’s reach. I have diligently been working on erasing that habit, with a modicum of success. To date, I’ve whittled notes down to three( or so) receptacles, pictured above. They are, top to bottom:
- Rhodia notepad @ my computer
- Rhodia reverse book – an 8 x8 spiral bound with dot grid paper
- traveler’s notebook/calendar
The last two I generally have close at hand and if push comes to shove, I can always jot down things in my iTools… when I remember.
Habits are hard to make …and/or break but slowly, there is progress.
