Almost everything you do in life is habit.
Think about it. From the moment you wake up, you start into a routine that has been forged from years of repeating the same actions in response to the same cues.
When your alarm goes off, you get up. When you sit on your sofa, you turn on the TV, when you get off the bus, you go to Starbucks for an extra large (sorry Venti for Starbucks aficionados) Caramel Macchiato.
So if your day is full of habits, they must be pretty influential in determining who you are, what you do and where you go in life? Absolutely. But most of us don't realize this. We are told what to think, what to do and how to behave. We are sheep. As soon as you focus on your day-to-day habits, you'll realise that you have a choice and anything in life is possible.
This is where we come in. The Habit Journal is a guided notebook. It's a tool for helping you track, measure and stick with any habit you choose. And this is where it gets interesting.
The habits you choose can lead directly to you achieving any goal you set for yourself. Why is that? Well, goals are simply the end result of executing the right habits every.single.day.
Don't believe me? Who is your hero?
