I believe in the importance of habits and routine. You can’t make impossible things possible without making small steps and small changes. Though on their own they may be small and (seemingly) insignificant, over time they build toward something: a new way of being, the birth of a new business or project, overcoming a long-standing obstacle, or finding the kind of work that you want to give your life to.
Leo Babauta has helped more people think about and build healthy habits than anyone else I know. He is an expert in life change through habits. I can’t stay away from his blog, Zen Habits. He is a minimalist, a father of six, a vegan, the author of a handful of books, and a fantastic guy.
