Bust Out of Your Rut

“Change is a good thing- really.”

It’s easy to get into ruts, and some of them are so deep rooted we don’t give them a second thought. If we’re honest though, we’ll realize that much of what we routinely do works against our goals.

You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge, so today, try to examine of some of your routines that might be sabotaging your ambitions. Do you have any?

Over the next week, pay attention to things you do automatically. Then, in each situation, figure out ways you can fine-tune your routines to make them a little more goal oriented.

For example, if you have been trying to fit exercise into your day, instead of hanging out in the lunch room, use your break to walk with a friend. If you’re trying to save money and you have a habit of stopping at Starbucks, why not bring a thermos of coffee to work instead?

Sure, it won’t be easy at first, but with a little tweaking here and there, you really can find ways to change your routine to help you meet your goals. And that’s a good thing!
