1st of the Month – Pick a Habit Day!

It’s the first of the month, which can mean only one thing… It’s time to start a brand new habit. The logic goes that is takes roughly 30 days to form a habit. So, if you pick a new skill or “thing” to work on for every month, then at the end of the year you’ve not only got 12 kick-ass shiny new habits, but you’ve developed your character along the way. You upgrade the size of your will power reserves, and become a more disciplined person. What’s not to love? For me, I ┬átry new things to push my mind out of it’s comfort zone. This month, it’s not going to be a habit per se (although it could turn into one). The thing I’m worst at.. is definitely art. Damn. I hate drawing, painting, scuplting. I’m rubbish at it. Which is why, for the next 30 days, until the 1st of August rolls around, I’m going to draw a picture everyday. Maybe it will strike some creative well within me. Who knows? So, pick something to work on until 1st of August. And do it EVERYDAY.

“Sow an act and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.” Charles Reade

    Hi Dorine, thanks for getting in touch! What would you like to know more about?

    A great place to start for info on the 30 day challenge is here;
    https://www.ted.com/talks/matt_cutts_try_something_new_for_30_days

    It’s a TED talk about trying new things for 30 days – it’s brilliant!

    Let me know if that was the kind of thing you’re looking for :)

    This design is steller! You definitely know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
    how you presented it. Too cool!
