Whether you realize it or not, you are in the middle of performing a habit. Somehow, you made your way onto a computer or smartphone and are now browsing the internet. This is to say, we are all performing some activity we do regularly, and these repetitive behaviors are habits. So when we say we are going to make a new habit, what we are really saying is that we are going to replace one habit with a more desirable one. The point of this blog post is to help you become more aware of your habits and offer some pointers as you set your sights on a new goal. Whether you are looking to make a life change or tweak an existing routine, these five steps will help you achieve your workflow goals.
People face change in every stage of their lives. We choose what schools to attend, when to start or switch careers, where to live, whom to marry, when (or if) to have children. We regularly see change at work with new procedures in response to technology innovation, globalization, and projects. Sometimes change comes in the form of behavior modifications we adjust ourselves, and other times it is trying to sway others to adopt new practices or alter bad habits. And although we are faced with change almost daily, most of us don’t know how it works, how to follow through with it, or if it’s worth the time and effort.
