(53:48) Detail Recap

  • Habits produce results. You can’t start to see the benefit of a habit until it actually becomes a habit.
  • Show up for yourself. It’s always tough when you’re working towards building a habit, but commit to showing up and putting in your best effort. Keep your sights set on what’s really important to you.
  • Life comes in seasons. Be mindful of the season you’re in, whether it’s a season of family, your career, or something else. When seasons start to shift, use this as your sign to reflect on your habits and goals, and realign where you need to.
