How I write daily

I grab my flat white.

I sip. I write.

Like clock-work.

The aroma brings clarity. The taste provides focus.

Words fill the page.

I hit publish.

My morning ritual is complete.

Habits

Everyone has habits. Good and bad.

Naturally, we want to stop the bad and maintain the good. But that is easier said than done.

To control your habits, as opposed to allowing your habits to control you, leverage the domino effect.

The domino effect of habits

Every habit has a single trigger action that unleashes a series of actions following. Once the first domino falls, they all tumble down.

To stop bad habits, prevent trigger actions from pursuing.

To maintain healthy habits, consistently pull the trigger.

Example

I write blog posts daily. How?

I drink coffee.

I never write without my cup of joe.

By consistently drinking coffee before I write, I further instill coffee as the habitual trigger that sets my mind in motion to write. With every passing morning ritual, the transition into my writing mindest becomes more fluid.

Why is this powerful?

There are days I don’t feel like writing. The written blog post is sitting on top of a mountain staring down at me. Climbing that mountain is intimidating.

There is never a day I don’t feel like drinking coffee. It’s a much easier task to accomplish.

I use this to my advantage and sip my coffee.

I write.

Like clock-work.

The aroma brings clarity. The taste provides focus.

And my morning ritual is complete.
