You know how we have those moments when an idea pops into our head and we get so excited that we can’t wait to start making that idea come true? And then we imagine the bright, bright…Oh, so bright future – we get overwhelmed with joy and all those amazing things that we’re going to accomplish – until a day, week, maybe a month later (every person is different) that same exciting idea, bursts like a bubble.
Yeah… So far, that was my journey with this blog. 🙂
And that’s OK. Do you know why?
Because new habits are hard to build. I’ve researched many articles about ‘habit implementation’, ‘habit switcheroo’s ‘ etc. And they all have one thing in common – the key is to Focus on the goal, learn from the results (good and bad). And that is the most ‘precise – simple – gives back your hope’ kind of rule that everyone should know when it comes to building habits.
Yeah, I admit, my focus on this blog wasn’t so sharp, and I have the results to prove it. BUT, I do have couple of amazing people that follow me, and that I follow, that somehow, I find my situation not so bad after all.
BUT, I am determined to do better. Because, this project means a lot to me, and it kind of sets the base for something even bigger that I have in mind (sorry guys, no spoiler alerts from this gal 😉 I’m not the one to kiss and tell).
Anyway, The Human and The New Habit is about the acceptance of hard times in life and the acknowledgement that bad times aren’t our final destination. We need to learn how to separate the wishes from the goals.
Let me give you an example.
A wish is: Oh God, I hope my future boyfriend has blue eyes.
A goal is: I am going to be with that man no matter what!
Just kidding. 😀 A wish is something that sounds nice but you know that you won’t die if you don’t get it (a wish is not a ‘Deal Breaker’). Where on the other hand, a goal is a must! Something that you know you want and that you’re willing to do what ever you need to make it happen (And yes, a Goal is a Deal Breaker). Of course, don’t take those two examples I gave you too seriously. I wrote them just for the dramatic effect, to explain the NEED of making something happen.
Who knows, maybe to some people it’s a must for their partner to have blue eyes. People are acceptably and variously weird, and I’m Ok with that. 😀
The point I’m trying to make is: It’s Ok to make mistakes, just make sure you know what mistakes are important – or, what mistakes will help you get to your goal faster and smarter.
After all, that’s what this project is all about – Growing Smarter. 🙂
If you feel like you have something to add, please do. I’m always open to hear from other people. The difference in our perspective is something that also helps us grow.
Kind and warm hugs!
