one little word sept update | 9.24.19 …


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.

How are you doing with your word? Joining Juliann for September’s  one little word update.

  1. I love your note gathering collection! I have a journal that I keep in my purse to capture things when I am out and that has helped tremendously in remembering!


  2. I’m a note taker and a notebook keeper. I have lists everywhere and somewhere! My main habit that I try to alter is how much news I consume. I give myself time limits and that works best. Also I crowd out news reading with book reading and that works well too.


  3. Well, I thought about mine a lot while we were traveling. I’ve been pretty consistent about honoring the intent of the word, but lost interest in keeping a daily record of some of my specific goals some time ago. Don’t think I’ll go back to that, but I am thinking it’s about time for an assessment.
