My experience with journaling has shown me the power of a decision. For the last 37 consecutive days, I’ve practiced writing in a journal. At first, it was hard, but at day 37, I don’t have to force myself to sit down to write anymore. On the contrary, I look forward to doing it every morning.
When I decided to keep a journal every day, I didn’t know all the good that it would bring to my life. The act of writing by itself is amazing, but the super power it gave to my confidence to act on the things I know I have to do is compounding. The more I decide, the better my decisions are. The more I decide, the less stressed I am, and the less procrastination I do. The more I decide, the happier I get.
When you decide something, and make it happen, it gives you tremendous power. Each time you follow through on your decision, you become stronger, you have more discipline, and you get a sense of self reliability. You can count on you to do the things you said you’d do!
As you start taking one small decision every day, and do it when you said you’d do it, you create momentum in your life. Procrastination becomes a thing of the past because you’ve built the muscle to beat it. You have a lot of practice and wins taking small decisions and acting on them. This makes you better able at taking on bigger and harder decisions because you know you’re going to make them happen. You’ve proven to yourself you could do it.
Here are a few examples of small decisions you can take to practice:
- decide to say something kind to your partner/friend/family/coworker today
- decide to go for a 5 minute walk after dinner tonight
- decide to follow the speed limit on the way home tomorrow
- decide to add a cup of veggies to your dinner for the next 3 days
- decide to write 1 thing you’re grateful for every day for 7 days
- or decide to spend only 10 minutes on Facebook today
And then just do it.
What’s one small decision you could take today and follow through?
