Today is my 31st day in a row that I have kept a new commitment to myself, of introducing one new, good habit into my life, and doing it every day.
I am feeling very good about myself and very grateful to Eben Pagan, as I have come this far in moving through his course, which is teaching me to Wake Up Productive.
I am looking forward to the benefits of sticking to my new good habit, and of introducing lots more good habits into my life.
Funny–I felt I just HAD to look it up this morning to remember which day I started, because I had lost count of the days!
During all that time, I only knew I had to keep going, for the good of the life dreams I am pursuing. It is interesting that I let go of keeping an exact count, and that I actually, unknowingly, overshot the target by one day, before I noticed.
Before I went out on my walk this morning, I thought it was only the 30th day, and therefore I HAD to go, especially today! (The tough part of this is to do it BEFORE breakfast, rather than just letting my “morning walk” happen any old time of day, which my experience tells me does not do me NEARLY as much good). This is akin to my good old set-the-clock-forward-to-fool-myself-into-getting-somewhere-early-trick– it only really works if the clock is accidentally fast, or if I forget I’ve done it).
I want to keep it up, from now on, in any case, but I’m really very happy about the 30 day milestone.
In his program, Eben dangled the carrot in front of me that 30 days is a key period for anyone to move toward the necessary escape velocity to get out of the sphere of old habits and beyond, toward new good habits you want create, to widen up your life and move you toward a starry bright, uncharted future, aligned with your truest life dreams.

*BTW, “Escape velocity” is a term I got from him– the other language in the last paragraph is mine.
Also, Eben does not even know that I have written this, and I am not receiving anything for doing so. I just felt moved to express my happiness and gratitude about this).
