Reading Gretchen Rubin’s Better than Before.
Habits. They are the architecture of our everyday lives – the quality of our habits become the quality of our lives.
So, I started thinking… Are habits working for me? From the book, and from self-reflection, I know that I am:
- A rebel (resisting both outer and inner expectations)
- Someone who loves novelty; starting new things and less so on finishing them (is this reflective of my lack of determination or willpower?)
- Someone who hates forms of accountability and restrictions
- Embracing freedom, spontaneity, authenticity
So this might be interesting, seeing that habits don’t seem to work well for rebels.
We’ll see. Anyhow, I believe that if I am to surround myself with a list (or couple of lists) of things to choose from in deciding what I might want to do to pursue my various goals, then I would still be alright.
