Habits vs. Goals = A World of Difference in Actions and Outcomes
“First forget inspiration.
Habit is more dependable.
Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not.
Habit is persistence in practice.”
— Octavia Butler
In my work coaching leaders to increase their “effectivity,” I am constantly amazed how many leaders have never made the connection that the real game changer in changing behavior and reaching outcomes is practicing habits, and not focusing solely on goals.
Ponder this idea in this blog post from our friends at Farnam Street:
Habits vs Goals : A Look at the Benefits of a Systematic Approach to Life https://www.farnamstreetblog.com/2017/06/habits-vs-goals/
If you aim at nothing, that’s what you will hit. And if your life is full of clutter and piles it is difficult to take focused aim on what’s important.
To help you design a plan for your life for 2017, and get your life organized, I recommend two books that are free audiobook downloads until Jan. 31.
My go to book for life planning and refocusing your life is Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want by Michael Hyatt & Daniel Harkavy. Here is the free audiobook download link, which is good until January 31: http://christianaudio.com/free/
The other free audiobook download is the national bestseller: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. This is more about organizing and decluttering your personal space, but it is amazing, when you have a clean and clear work space, how much easier it is to do the creative and important work of life planning. Here is the free audiobook download link, which is good until January 31: http://www.audible.com/promo/offer/2761/ref=a_at_redeem_pc_redeem_2761?p=TIDYUP1&bp_o=true&source_code=SAHFPEM121616002R&ipRedirectOverride=true
New research reveals surprising truths about why some work groups thrive and others falter.
Read about these findings from Charles Duhigg, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The New York Times, from his new book ‘‘Smarter Faster Better: The Secrets of Productivity in Life and Business,’’ from which this article is adapted.
