When Good Habits vanish

By Khalil Gdoura - May 07, 2020

Habits.. they are ironically easy to establish and easy to.. abandon. A few months ago, I committed to learning a new language, following a serious yet gentle program : 30 minutes every morning before anything else.

That worked like a charm until the day I wondered : "let me do it later, I want to save this moment of freshness to start my work early". Well, I did not find that precious time & energy later. The days after were dictated by that insane, stubborn perfectionism which subtly debunked my habit to the point that I totally forgot it.

Lesson learnt : If you succeed to implement a tiny habit, do not rush it, do not let that "selfish" inner voice interfere unless your habit does not match your goals and values anymore.
