“Habits are like financial capital – forming one today is an investment that will automatically give out returns for years to come.” – Shawn Achor
What kind of ‘habit investments’ have you been making lately? When you create a habit, it can either bring you closer to your goals or pull you further from them. This means your returns could be positive or negative depending on the habit you created.
How do you choose the habits you make a part of your life? One of the most effective ways to keep your habits aligned with your Principle Targets is to keep these in front of you to be read throughout every day and week. As you make the choice to take any action, you are able to ask yourself whether the action is moving you closer to or further from your intended target.
When you are moving closer to your goals, this is a habit to take consistent action on. Implement it every day for 21 days to create a new habit for yourself which will keep on returning positive returns.
If you look at this new action and are unsure or know it’s pulling you the other direction, make sure you are good with the outcome before creating the negative investment. Of course, one of the consequences of making a knowingly negative investment is the effort and time it will take to change it in the future when you want to turn it into a positive habit.
If your goal is creating wealth, does spending 30 minutes on Facebook viewing status updates and clicking on articles get you closer to your principle targets? Know this habit you are creating costs you time know and results later. Using this same 30 minutes to focus on a better action item directed at your goals would result in you investing an additional 125 hours toward your principle target in a year (counting only a typical work week). This is 15 and a half additional work days (8 hour work day) you currently are choosing to invest in surfing Facebook instead of creating more in your life. Shocking, right? Is this how you want to use half a month of your available wealth creation time?
Pay attention to the little habits you create which can have huge implications to your final results. Every action and habit is either moving you closer to or further from your Principle Targets. You get to choose which direction it goes. Choose wisely.
