How Do You Spend Your 🧠 Energy?
Did you know that you have finite mental energy each day? We all do. Meaning you can only think and do so much before your brain needs a break.
One of the ways you can make the most of your mental energy each day is through Strategic Positive Habits.
A habit is something you do without thinking, like brushing your teeth. The not having to think about it part is key 🔑.
I love the work of James Clear, author of Atomic Habits. Here’s his visual for what it takes to create a habit.
When you start out at Point A, your new habit will take a lot of effort. As you continue to repeat the habit at Point B it gets easier and more automatic but still requires conscious thinking and attention. Once you’ve repeated that sucker enough times, BAM — it just becomes automatic — you don’t have to think about it at all!
So what Strategic Positive Habits do you want to create in your life?
