We have come to the last of the eight things we believe need to be in place in order for real, sustainable change to happen. In this episode, we are tackling the idea that there is no “finish line” to cross. Change is forever.
- We aren’t simply reaching a finish line, we are changing ourselves. Fundamentally but also dynamically.
- The great thing about that is you don’t have to abandon one to start another.
- This is a great framework to evaluate what you are going to spend your time focussing on – am I willing to do this forever? And if I don’t, what will happen if I quit.
Take a look at the habit that you are most focused on acquiring or maintaining. Ask yourself, “Is this how I want to live my life forever?”
If the answer is no, you have your answer. But if the answer is yes, ask yourself what will happen if you decide to stop practicing this behavior.
How would it impact your progress toward your goals and objectives? What new behavior or habit would you replace it with?
