zen habits: My 12 Habits

My 12 Habits

Last month, I started an ongoing thing that I call my 12 Habits: it's a way for me to focus on one habit at a time, rather than a bunch of them. It's also a way for me to focus on a habit for an entire month, rather than doing one for a week or two, and then moving on to my next interest.

So, if you look in the sidebar, you'll see the 12 habits I plan to tackle over the next year or so. They'll change, as I go along ... what I've put up there is a rough list, and I'm still thinking on it.

My first habit, in November, was writing daily. I cannot claim success with that habit, and I will be continuing to work on it in the coming months. I wrote daily for the first week, but was spotty in weeks 2 and 3, and then wrote phenomenally in the last week. I hope to be more consistent with this from now on, and more consistent with my other habits.

I will be doing a series on the 12 Habits ... one post for each of the habits over the next week or so, talking about what I want to achieve, how I will measure each goal, what strategies I'll use, maybe some links. Another note: the 12 Habits won't be limited to 12 ... after I do the 12th one, I'll move on to the next. I just call it that because I'll be working on 12 habits a year, one per month.

I came across your post tonight and wrote my own 12 habits. Thanks for the concept and for sharing. I've enjoyed reading your blog. You can view my 12 habits at http://blog.ho-ohana.com.

Awesome, Kara! I love your list. I wish you the best of luck. These changes will feel great once you get them going, I'm sure of it.
