Our habits

Last week I read an article. The article was written by James Clear. James is n entrepreneur, weightlifter, and travel photographer in 20 countries. He knows how to succeed at his passions. Isn’t that something we all kind of dream off every once in a while?

Wouldn’t you love to be working in your passion today? My grandfather and father spent many years working hard to make a living for their families. They did some pretty labor intensive work and my grandfather would do his best to point out to an adolescent John all the professions and people working the professions who did not have to perform laborious acts to bring home the bacon. I may be visiting my grandparents house during a news broadcast and I would hear my grandpa tell me all about how the weather man didn’t have to work hard. The weather man didn’t even need to get it right! That was a great job!

Laborious work is rewarding but it is laborious and hard to sustain. A job in a coal mine is less of a career and more of a job, unless of course we find new ways of extracting coal or even powering and  heating our homes. Than an energy job becomes more than a job. The coal mining job becomes a career in energy.

Changing our jobs to careers and especially careers in a job we are passionate in will take a habit. Habits are routines and behaviors that are repeated regularly. A good habit will result in good things.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

We develop habits by doing good things. This Monday and all week I encourage you to do good things.
