Lifestyle changes only occur when those changes fit and stick to what you are already doing. A new habit needs a buddy other than your mates, co-workers, or family. Those relationships are already sufficiently complicated without adding more into the mix. Your habit buddy is simply a tactic that works by encouraging your new but timid habit to buddy up with an existing but more experienced one. Long term success is yours when you realise that it is not you having to stick to the new habit rather it is you finding how to make that new habit stick to you.

For too many people, the true answer to why they are not winning is due to bad choices. Simply put – people choose not to win.  Excuses are people choosing not to win.  Believing that taking first place is the only acceptable victory is choosing not to win.  Deciding that your best is not good enough is choosing not to win.

I have decided that one of my daily POMODOROS will now be a squishy one. Simply put, of all the things I need to do each day, I will choose the most disgusting, rotten, smelly thing and just do it instead of pushing it over until tomorrow.

So take one thing. Choose a pomodoro worth of work. Stop waiting for a better time to do it and just get it done now.
