It doesn’t need to be something that costs you a lot of money to do, either.
1. Learn to draw
2. Decide to read 50 books in a year and keep track of them
3. Volunteer once a week with a local organization
4. Host a regular meetup group
5. Hike all the trails in your local area
6. Grow a windowsill herb garden
7. Sing in a choir
8. Pick a book of recipes and work your way through it
9. Run a mile every day
10. Learn to tailor your own clothes
Really, anything that requires consistent effort on your part is ideal for this method.
Thank you for this.
I just turned 29 and not feeling really happy about it.. about my career, my life and my year, so this speaks to me in a perfect timing 🙂
>Anything that requires some effort and dedication on your part will contribute to a habit of being hardworking and dedicated
this is actually so true. and a lot of people think it has to be something major but even something minor helps this as well. Something as little as committing to making your bed in the morning, every morning, can have a huge impact over time
also what usually lights a fire under my ass is “there are consequences for everything you do, but there are also consequences for everything you don’t do”
I’m not sure exactly why that always motivates me but it just does. I guess it’s because it’s like… if I sit and do nothing, then the consequence for that is I didn’t do anything. But if I just pick any damn thing and do the damn thing, then maybe there are negative consequences to it but there will ALSO be positive consequences from it, which is at least better than just the purely negative consequences of not doing anything to begin with
forget where I heard that idea first though!
