Adopting and Maintaining Good Habits

This LinkedIn article from Kamy Eliassi, Founder, and CEO at AudioVizion caught my attention. Your 7 Habits & Your Positive Behavior Change Score is an interesting look back at the late Stephen R. Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, and an exploration of “adopting… habits into… our lives so… they become second nature to us.”

With an interesting, interactive infographic that gives your Positive Behavior Change Score, it’s a thought-provoking exercise in asking yourself some hard questions about habits and change.

Write. Act. Deliver.

My work consumes the last two months of the year. The result? The New Year comes at me before I’m ready to “plan my work and work my plan.” From a personal planning perspective, it’s mid-November for me today.

I’m working a different planning method for 2016. I’m confident I’ll get better results by using it.

An Alternative to New Year’s Resolutions

It originates from a guy I met at a conference in 2005 by the name of Chris Brogan. Over the years, I’ve read his writings, taken a few of his business courses, and I’ve come to appreciate his perspective on business, life, personal responsibility and other topics.

As I have high hopes for 2016, I’m using Chris’s alternative to New Year’s Resolutions (he’s done this for ten years). He calls it “My 3 Words.” Rather than tell you about it, please take a couple of minutes to read the post, and complete the exercise.

If your New Year’s Resolutions are taking on water, consider Chris’s My 3 Words as an alternative to getting things to happen with intention in 2016.

My 3 Words for 2016

My three words for 2016 are:

  • Write
  • Act
  • Deliver

Details of the what and the why of My 3 Words are forthcoming.

If you’ve chosen your 3 Words, please share them in the comments (and on Chris’s website, too, of course). It’s a great way to hold yourself a little more accountable, enroll others’ support, and put some added power into your efforts.

I wish everyone a wonderful, exciting, productive, and healthy (if not belated) Happy New Year!

Let’s make stuff happen in 2016. It’s time to get cracking.


P.S. Thanks, Chris.
