Our resistance to change and growth is strong. A natural desire for security gets confused with a desire for stasis – for no change. This can cause us to actively resist even the changes we desire.
I’m sitting down today to write out three work habits I’d like to adopt between now and Christmas (roughly three months away). I’ll post them where I can see them every day to remind me.
It’s my hope that making them specific, concrete, and attainable will enable me to tackle them every day and build some positive momentum in overcoming my innate resistance.
(For more on the Resistance, I highly recommend this book by Steven Pressfield.)
