Idea 3: Examine Your Habits

The Path

One of the things that elude us often are the ones right in front of our faces. They surprise us. Catch us off guard. I was asked recently who am I with and where am I? They were to be taken literally. They were deep questions to ask myself at my core. Am I being true to who I want to be as well as, am I where I want to be? Our habits, they paint a very clear picture. They can be our map for guidance.

How about your habits? What if you sat with those habits for a week, documenting your every move? Somewhere after enough insight you could go back, review them, then decide from there the narrative they tell you. That would be some great guidance as well as self-feedback right?

Here’s something of an idea from James Clear of what they have the power to tell us. How they can empower us to make something different of the life around us. Habits are choices we make. Which means, the power to tell a different narrative is always possible!

“Your habits are how you embody a particular identity. When you make your bed, you embody the identity of someone who is clean and organized. When you study, you embody the identity of someone who is studious. What identity are you embodying today? Who are your habits helping you become?”

– James Clear

How different would our world of work/life be if everyone were super evolved enough to understand this philosophy of self-awareness? Where your thoughts go, so goes your actions. Our actions are our habits. Our habits are the story to ourselves as well as those around us of what’s most important.

Idea 3 to me is really about looking at your habits. What do your habits tell you about what you want from yourself. What do your habits tell others about how you lead, what’s most important, your relationships, and how you want to show up? It’s simple as an idea. Probably why most people overlook what they tell others and ourselves about what’s most important. You don’t like it, tell a different story.
