Starting a new habit? Maybe daily practice or blogging or early rising?
You will slip. You’ll miss a day or two in your quest. Perhaps you’re about to hit double digits on a practice streak when you miss a day.
Missing a day isn’t the end of the world unless it makes you want to keep missing days. You aren’t a failure because you slipped, but you will fail if you interpret the slip as a sign that you can’t succeed.
Acknowledge the slip and forgive yourself. Get back up off the ground and get another streak doing!
