4 weeks to build a habit

On January 1st I took over the task to follow up with every day and check what lesson had I learned today.

They say you can form a habit in 21 days, or 28 days. Today it’s 28 days of looking at my day at the end or the next morning and look for the lesson of the day. And still I have to say, the habit has not been formed. I still struggle through finding the time to write.

The habit that is there, though, is the habit of looking at the day, and looking for the lesson, even if finding the time to write it down has proved more challenging.

So this little new rule that I have for this year, to look at every day of the year to look for the lesson of that day, has payed off where it is the most important: to create a mind that is open to learning. And that is beautiful. I feel sometimes we just forget that learning and stretching ourselves is how we are going to become the best version of ourselves.

Now, to take the habit building to the next level, I’d like to share with you a TED talk I just saw, about doing something new for 30 days, and I am really looking forward to see what that something new I will start to do in February.

What would you like to do for the next 30 days?
