Friday Unwind – Gretchen Rubin – Habits and the strategy of first steps

9 Jan

Good morning everyone! Staying with the idea of building habits in this new year, today’s Friday Unwind is from Gretchen Rubin. She has a book coming out in March titled “Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives.” (http://www.amazon.com/Better-Than-Before-Mastering-Everyday/dp/0385348614/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420768415&sr=8-1&keywords=gretchen+rubin)

As part of the lead up to the release of the book, she has been releasing videos on her You Tube channel sharing ideas from the book on building habits, which is particularly interesting given the time of the year we are in now.

And to state my own thought again, I am not a big fan of resolutions. I am big fan of change, and to make a change requires new or , at least, modified habits. And starting new habits requires, as she references, focusing on the first steps.

Be sure to catch her idea on “Don’t break the chain”….it is something I am trying myself.

All the best, kevin
