For me, there is a huge satisfaction when creating and checking things off my to-do list. The act of thinking of the tasks, drawing the list, and prioritizing forces you to process the information and get it done. In fact, studies show that taking notes long-hand allows you to remember information better versus just hearing or seeing it.
This morning, in addition to my daily agenda, I wrote up a daily habit tracker for the next 21 days. I decided to focus on two areas: personal and professional growth. For some other ideas, you can focus on health, social media, fitness, cleaning, blogging, or business.
To create your own, think of some positive habits you’d like to adopt. For some inspiration, check out my ideas here—I’ll be adding more as they come to mind. Then, create a grid or use a quad-ruled notebook (I picked mine up from target). I suggest starting with 21 or 30 days because it takes at least 21 days to make or break a habit!
Adding positive habits forces you to go into a value-creation mode. I hope you find this article inspirational. Comment your positive habit ideas below! It is all about the small changes.
