“Every great success is the culmination of a thousand tiny victories nobody ever notices or appreciates."~ Brian Tracy

Nobody wins a game of chess in one move. Any victory in war is the result of several battles won. If your goal is to sail around the world, the attainment of that goal will involve many smaller wins/milestones along the way.

As we prepare to kick off the 2021 New Year and identify our big goal, it's just as important—perhaps more important—to identify the small wins, the mini victories, along the way.

This is precisely the philosophy and strategy that The Habit Factor® has taught from day one. By identifying the habits that will carry you toward your big goal, and attaining those daily "victories," the chances for your overall success increases dramatically.

The homework for this episode, for new listeners especially, is to identify the habits that, when performed on your target days, will provide those mini-victories. These not only promote your confidence; they compile into tremendous momentum over time.

So, which habits—three to five habits—can you begin to track that will move you more quickly to your most important goals for the New Year? Once you've identified them, use The Habit Factor's free habits and goals tracking template below, or download the iOS or Android tracking app, and get busy tracking your habits today!

Our 2021 New Year Series continues, so be sure to subscribe!

Enjoy the episode!

“Habit is either the best of servants or the worst of masters.” ~Nathanael Emmons

One Saturday, driving to the office before a Habit Factor Group Challenge event, MG records this quick episode to underscore what seems to elude so many of us: that habit should be used as a tool, one that is consciously constructed, with practice, (following P.A.R.R.) to serve us unconsciously.

This is what is meant by holistic thinking, rather than, "I don't believe in habit," as one "guru" put it to Martin, adding, "I only believe in mindfulness."

That is both a noble and silly proposition.

Habit isn't something one "believes" in. Habit isn't going anywhere, just like the moon isn't going anywhere. Thus, thinking holistically, one can intentionally cultivate the habits that will serve them unconsciously. 

So, what habits are you making your servants?

Enjoy the episode!

"Unfortunately, we're all not going to be lucky enough to have a near-death experience."

During a recent interview (which has yet to air) for another habit-related podcast, host Brian Conroy said something interesting: "You know, I don't mean to sound skeptical, but these other authors, what's interesting...is they've all had near-death experiences."

While the interviewer's point was not lost, the message had a more meaningful application, thus MG's answer above.

Since near-death experiences force us to ask the tough questions, the realization is that we should ALL be "lucky" enough to encounter them.

However, this isn't likely to happen any time soon for most of us, so we'll have to do the next best thing: Use our creative imaginations and pretend we have almost died!

Near death experiences lead us to ask reflective questions, such as, What has my life meant? What have I shared/given? What have I learned? What have I achieved and experienced in this life? Perhaps even better, "If we were to die tomorrow, what would I most regret NOT achieving, learning, or experiencing?"

If beginning with the end in mind is important with a project or even weekly productivity, you can rest assured that beginning with the ultimate end, your demise, is even more important and valuable.

It was Socrates who suggested that, "The unexamined life is not worth living."

So, how are you examining your life?

Chances are, it would help you immensely to put the present in order and give it greater value by imagining a near-death experience to draw out some important answers about how you'd like to live your life going forward.

Enjoy the episode!

Q: How long should I be tracking my habits?
A: How long do you plan on living?

After a recent presentation to an entrepreneur group, the question came up, "How long should I be tracking my habits?" MG's response, "How long do you plan on living?"

Coming on the heels of recent episodes, "Habit Tracking is for Humans" and "What are the Most Important Habits?" the realization is this; we should track the habits that help us achieve our most important goals, for the majority of our life

Taking a page right out of Benjamin Franklin's autobiography, who, after nearly sixty years of tracking his habits (virtues), said of the practice, "though I never arrived at the perfection I desired... I was a better and happier man for the effort." Then, Ben concluded, "I hope, therefore, that my descendants shall follow the example (habit tracking) and reap the benefit."

While tracking habits for the rest of your life may seem extreme, at first, it's efficacy has been proven time and again and has a profound effect not just on one's character but on their productivity and achievements.

Further, as reviewed in a recent episode, some of the most-cited habit studies for humans—for instance, the European Journal of Social Psychology, utilized habit tracking with their participants.

Unlike other creatures, we (humans) have the ability to craft, at will, any habit and skill we desire with PRACTICE. TRACKING REAFFIRMS PRACTICE AND PRACTICE REAFFIRMS DESIRE.

Start habit tracking now keep on trackin'! Be like Ben!

Enjoy the episode!
