Being week 33, I am reading about habits, and I borrowed the title for this post from Napoleon Hill’s essay.
This morning I woke up at a reasonable hour – meaning I could have been at the gym earlier than I was. I spent that time reading a book. Not a bad book, but not one that made my current situation a bit better. It just made me late.
I got to the gym and did another abbreviated work-out. I increased my time on the treadmill to 21 minutes, and did some time on the bike. While on the treadmill I read and I pondered the habits that make up my morning.
God has given us the ability to create our own habits. That means that by omission or commission, I create habits that impact my day.
For example, every night I read something, and I usually read it in the morning as well. Lately this has been the Harry Potter novels. Last night it was a Debbie Macomber romance. I enjoy both books. But I enjoy them at a price. This morning’s reading made me re-think the books that I keep on my night stand.
When I got home from the gym, I did a little cleaning up. The nightstand is less cluttered! I have not put something in it’s place – yet. But God has blessed me with a number of books that would make better reading. I just need to choose one.
Well, I have a physio appointment shortly and I need to have a look at the books I already have. I’ll let you know what I have decided to go with tomorrow!
Have a wonderful day. Enjoy the summer while we have it. (I’m back to wearing jackets to they gym.)
