Try on a habit for one month, like you are taking a new outfit for a thorough test-wear... try it on, live with it for long enough to understand how it fits (or doesn't) into what you want your life to be.
At the end of the month, decide whether to keep the new habit, tweak it, or let it go. With just a little experiment every month you can create an entirely new life by the end of the year. Groovy.
For January 2014 my experiment is "write every day", and I've decided to start a new blog over at ItsAlwaysMorning.com to think out loud about living more intentionally.
Here's my current writing plan:
- Personal growth experiments, inspirational ideas I come across, experiments in work-life balance, and projects I undertake (including thinking about a lifestyle business) will live at ItsAlwaysMorning.com
- Everything I learn about startups as I try to help build Coursefork (my friend Brian's company) will be shared at SteveReaser.com.
- Personal bits and pieces that don't fit into one of those broad themes will continue to land here, as I need to get them out of my head.
So yeah, this is a bit messy, but let's give it a go and see where it takes me!
