We’re not supposed to write down our good habits, but rather just the inverse of our bad habits. There were a few that I needed to recommit to but it was easy to do so. I’m going to remove those at the end of the week, and I’m adding the others that may be challenging.

Here’s my record from yesterday:

  • Exercise aerobically 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week.
  • Track your eating.
  • Eat less than 300 calories of junk food per day.
  • Avoid fast food
  • Floss daily.
  • Sleep at least 7 hours a night.
  • Set daily goals, in writing.
  • Spend 30 minutes each day reading for self-improvement.
  • Do everything in moderation.
  • Think before speaking.
  • Work toward developing relationships every day.

I’m still not consistently tracking my eating, and I’m still overindulging in sweets — I expect there’s a connection there. I would be happy to sleep eight hours a night, but I have a dog who wakes me up around 3:30 every morning, and I can’t get to bed early enough to accommodate that.

But I also am not doing things in moderation. Successful people, Corley says, don’t work insane hours.
