I have mentioned being a fan of James Clear many times here on the TEM Blog. This tweet is a great example of why.
“A habit is a lifestyle to be lived, not a finish line to be crossed.”
I have framed a habit in my head as having a finish line many times. Maybe not explicitly, but that’s how I’ve approached them theoretically.
This is a call to action over the long haul. Sustainable change is what we are really looking for.
And as a bonus, here is a reply to the above tweet which also resonated with me:
Frequency over intensity! I have successfully created new habits in the practice room, as a writer, as a podcaster and as a small business owner using frequency as the engine so this is a good reminder!
