Mark Twain

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Focus


An intelligent man aims at wise action but a fool starts off in many directions.

_____Proverbs 17:24

Changing habits is best done by focusing on one habit to change at one time. Five weeks is a time period given to as by psychologists as the time frame to create a new habit. You try to learn the new habit until it becomes an unconcious part of your routine. Prompts are needed by most of us to keep mindful of our gaols and aspirations. You should be keeping a 'to do ' list which needs to include your new habit so time can be made on your schedule for things like exercise if that is your new habit. All things respod to repetition and after the five weeks of repeating your new behavior, it will become integrated into your routine.

Otherwise you will become like a puppy with two tails.
