Habits, Systems, and Scripts

I’ve been ‘auditing’ various areas of my life.

After being obsessively focused on work for a long time, it’s been helpful to think deeply about the habits and pre-written scripts that I’ve developed across a bunch of areas of life. In most cases, the habits I’ve adopted over the years are a function of taking the path of least resistance than an intentional choice.

Here are some things I’m looking at:

  • Information Consumption (news, email, podcasts, reading, etc)
  • Exercise
  • Eating
  • Prayer
  • Marriage
  • Friendship

Thinking through what I want from these categories, where I’m not satisfied, and asking ‘why’ multiple times until I get the root cause of the delta has been insightful. It’s allowed me to rewrite the default scripts I operate out of and make meaningful change very quickly.

It takes intentional effort & dedicated time to create clarity in your thinking to focus in on what needs to change and to generate the excitement to do it.

Take some time and audit areas of your life that you’ve ignored because of laziness or busyness. It’s worth it.
