It’s well passed January 15, and you know what that means, right? 95% of you have fallen off the New Year’s Resolution wagon. It’s tough. I know. But it doesn’t have to be this way. I’ll change. I promise.
Wait a minute, are we breaking up?
No, we aren’t breaking up. We are examining why you may have fallen off the wagon and are not following through on your commitments. I have high hopes that this is the most interactive post yet (Don’t let me down!). I want you to proudly proclaim what you have not followed through on and why you haven’t followed through on it. I say proudly because I firmly believe in owning who you are. I’ve won a lot of “things” in my life, but I sure have lost a lot of “things” as well. Win/lose, whatever. It is what it is. Accept it and move forward.
One of the things I have failed at, but am still working on, is only checking my cell phone once per hour. Late last year, it dawned on me that I must’ve checked my phone 150 times throughout the day. It’s a habit. “I must break you,” I said to this habit in my best Ivan Drago voice. Why would I want to decrease the number of times I check my cell phone? Let’s break it down…
At 5 seconds a clip, thats 750 seconds or 12.5 minutes of my day spent simply reaching for, and looking at, my phone. If I broke that down into checking my phone only once per hour, that’s 16 times per day or only 1 minute and 20 seconds of my time. I just saved over 11 minutes in my day!
Now it’s your turn. Tell us what you have failed to do. Own it. Post it. Somewhere. Anywhere. Blog. Social Media. Youtube. Hello?
Thanks for reading :)
