In sales, I have learned that getting anyone to change their habits and use your product or service is the toughest part of the job, even if they love the superiority, and ease of use, old habits die hard.

As a woman, I find that giving up old habits, old mind sets is one of the toughest things I’ve ever done.

It’s so easy to fall into what’s comfortable.  But it isn’t always beneficial.

Today I am grateful for gentle reminders, as old habits die of starvation.  They aren’t fully dead yet, but they are looking mighty sickly.

  1. Oh Wendy, I know just what you mean! I try so hard to just live my life free of a to-do list but my old habit of needing to feel as if I’ve accomplished something by the end of each day keeps butting in to my stabs at spontaneity!

    • My to do list doesn’t seem to get done because of “life” getting in the way. I like your take on spontaneity. Instead of embracing the life, I get really down in myself because I didn’t get my stuff done. So I’m really making a conscious effort to not be so rigid, and forgive myself for not getting it “all” done.

      • Wendy, I think it comes from a lifetime of needing a schedule in order to get everything done. My children are grown and out of the house, I am retired and my days are now unstructured…I keep telling myself to embrace the freedom I now have, but instead I keep trying to corral it into a routine! 🙂
