Take the choice out of it: a small life hack for building habits
If it’s not on the calendar, it doesn’t exist.
Never has a truer statement been made.
There’s too much going on elsewhere for us to remember everything, so we rely on our calendars to be our proxy memories.
When you promise to meet someone, if you don’t set a time on your calendar, who knows when you’re going to meet them?
The same can be said for building new habits. If you don’t put a time on the calendar, does it really exist?
Take the choice out of it. As soon as you decide you want to pick up a new habit, the calendar is your first port of call. Making a space for it means that when it comes time, you’ve already decided that you’re going to do it. So do it.
(Whether you choose to abide by your calendar or not is the real problem, I guess, but at least now you’re thinking about it!).
