This book changed my life in many ways. The biggest way was to direct me in my New Year's Resolutions. I had been in search of an idea for a 12-month system that changed monthly rather than a do-or-die-all-or-nothing-all-year-long approach. I found what I was looking for in the H. For someone change-oriented like me, whose motivation ebbs and flows from day to day (or is that everyone?) this was a perfect approach. For someone who thrives on charts and lists and checkmarks and visual proof of progress, this was just the thing.
So go read the book. (I have a copy that I'm happy to lend out.) Get it from the library if you don't have $30 to spare. Or get it on Amazon if you are more patience-oriented and spend $12. And don't be one of those lame-oes who hates on New Year's Resolutions, okay? Resolutions rock.
Here are mine for the month of January.
~Wake up at 6:15am (this is a work in progress - I'm gradually getting there. Today was 6:40am.)
~Study scriptures for 30 minutes
~Write something every day
~Exercise 5 times a week
~Go to gym (boxing) 3 times a week
~15 minutes of housework (put the house to bed)
~Veggie up! (This one is thanks to Cooking Light magazine's awesome 12HH program - check it out!)
So far, so good. I haven't been perfect every day, but I'm not expecting that. I feel so good about the efforts I'm making, and that's enough for me.
