It has been a year and one day since the last blog I made. I should say, the change of my season of becoming a dad was really amazing but really energy draining and one good habit I lost was writing a blog. Now the problem begins, “how can I start all over again?”
All of us miss or fail in the consistency of doing good things specially productive habits that’s gives us good results. Whether exercise, eating healthy food, reading good books or writing a blog, we have a tendency of losing it and revert to our old habits.
As a leader, restarting all over again is a difficult thing to do. You think about all the excuses why you “can’t” do it or feel guilty that you are just trying to save you face. But whatever beneficial habit you have missed for a long time, I believe it deserves a restart. However difficult it may be, the benefit outweighs the sacrifices.
I know restarting begins in the mind. So let me share these three thoughts with regards to restarting a good habit.
“Remember the why” – I believe going back to the purpose why you have done it can rekindle the passion and activate action. Without the purpose it will be difficult to come back because there is no reason to go back to it. One reason why I am coming back to writing is because I want to make an impact to the next generation through the lessons I have learned this season of my life.
“Remember the impact it has done” – I believe remembering the results of re-doing those good ha bits can inspire a person to start all over. There might be good habits then that didn’t produce as much beneficial results that you expected but, it’s also a great reason to restart because the impact might be more rewarding the second time around.
“Do it” – need to say more? Application requires a lot of courage and strength. But once you get started it can create momentum that will give you a boost to restart those good habits.
What other ways can make a person restart good habits that we’re lost for a long time?
