Habits are a funny thing.

It’s easy to create bad ones and hard to create good ones.

Once you manage to create a good habit, it can start to feel permanent. You almost can’t imagine not doing it. It feels like it’s just a thing that you do, now and forever. 

But in reality, your good habits are NOT permanent. They’re a function of your routine. If your routine is interrupted for an extended period of time, your good habits are at risk. 

If you find that your routine is suddenly out of whack, you might want to step back and take inventory of your good habits. Ask yourself a few questions:

Here’s the thing…

Don’t fool yourself by thinking, “I’ll get back to jogging (or meditating or saving money or marketing my business or whatever) after things are back to normal.”

Things might never go back to normal. And even if they do, it could take long enough that your good habits won’t magically return. 

Guard your good habits fiercely. These are the regular actions you take to improve your life. Don’t let them go.
