Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad
Connie’s motivational quote today is by one of her favorite leadership expert ― Stephen Covey
“Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character.”
Do you have any bad habits? Come on, you know what I am talking about! If we know what is considered a good versus a bad habit, why do we have so many darn bad habits?
Most of us have tried to loose weight, get in better shape by going to the gym every day, eat healthier, stop smoking, and the list goes on and on. So if we know what make a habit good or bad, why do we still have so many that often seem to be out of control.
What if I told you there is an almost foolproof way to really change up your behavior patterns – Do I have your attention?? Is this even possible?
