Developing Habits

We all have habits ingrained in our lives. Most of our good habits (if any) take us to eventual long-term success, and our bad habits take our time, health, happiness and money. Make a list of what all you do as a habit daily and see which ones are good and which ones are not.

Habits like spending hours on social media, binge shopping, and lying on the couch are a few examples of bad habits.

Planning Ahead

Life is unpredictable, but planning is still important. Use your phone's calendar and to-do list, or install an app to create daily and weekly plans:

  • Plan even for small errands.
  • Keep in mind that things take longer than you expect.
  • Block chunks of time, or an entire day for a task.
