Habits, and the outcomes.

New blog post – habits and the outcomes – 90 second read. 

My last three posts have been on the theme of change.  You can view those here:

Power of consistent small changes  / A game of motivation and willpower / Win the morning and win the day

For this post I wanted to wrap this theme up, and then I stumbled across an instagram post James Clear had shared.

He’s just released a book called Atomic Habits.

I’ve not read it yet, but I’ve got a feeling it’s worth a look. What I saw summed my last few posts up so well I decided to share some of his words.  They may come across a little ‘black and white’ but they’re also straight to the point…here we go:

-Your outcomes (in life) are a lagging measure of your habits.

-Your net (financial) worth is a lagging measure of your spending habits.

-Your weight is a (real life) lagging measure of your eating habits.

-Your knowledge is a lagging measure of your learning habits.


Of course, there’s much you can’t control in life, but habits go a long was in creating the life you lead.

I’m not so bold as to say ‘you must do this’, merely sharing what I have learnt from my own experiences over the past few years – a lot of which came from an 18 month period of travel, change, and adventure – of which I wrote about in my book Adventures In Happiness.

Something to think about?  I know I’ve got work to do!  But it’s work that is both worthy, and rewarding.

Have a good week.
