Habits and Routines

This is a follow-up to my post last week when I told everyone what my goals were.  Unfortunately, I made minimal progress because I decided to take a week off and enjoy time with my family, whom I haven’t seen in a long time.  I decided that a little family time was a little more important, but now it’s time to get back on my grind.

It’s been a very stressful past couple of months with all of the uncertainty looming overhead and I’m constantly asking myself if it was all worth it.  In the end, I know it will be, but until I secure a job, I will constantly question the decision (and so does my wife).

With all of this moving around, I finally have been able to take a step back and slow down.  I’ve slowly been getting back into everything and creating a solid foundation starting with focusing on my routine and my habits.  By focusing on routines and habits, I will be able to continually progress and use that foundation to spring forward more success.  What does that mean?  By creating healthy habits, I take away the extra time needed to accomplish some tasks because it becomes second nature.  Consider my goal of reading 1 book per month.  If I routinely set time aside at the end of the day, then there is less time required planning it out or wondering when I should read.  If I set up a solid workout regimen, I have less time moping around or wondering what I will workout and when.  All of that would already be established. 

Do you get my drift?  If you want to consistently progress toward your goals, then you need to establish a routine and healthy habits.

In this post, I describe one morning routine to consider.

What am I actually working on?

Again, right now I’m in the prepping phase.  First step was to create my immediate goals.  Now I create an action plan on those goals.  I use my habits and routines to help get me stay consistent and make those goals more achievable.

Instagram takes up a significant amount of time for me since it is my preferred social media platform.  I’m sharing content regularly, but now I’m working on my own content and creating regular interactions with everyone. 

Healthwise, I went and bought a membership at the closest gym to where I’m at and unfortunately, I am not impressed.  One thing I loved about the military: their gyms created the ability for many people to use it.  This gym did not have that same vibe.
