Habits and Success

Written by Carole Pagan

I got a big reminder overrepparttar last couple of weeks about what happens when you let your good habits slip - and how easy it is to fall intorepparttar 150379 trap of being overwhelmed.

This week when I am getting back intorepparttar 150380 habit of having repparttar 150381 dishes cleaned up before I go to bed, eating healthy, and actually getting to bed at a reasonable hour, I am seeing again what a difference it makes in my productivity.

We all get in those periods in our life when we feel like we're accomplishing a lot more by letting other things slide - when actuallyrepparttar 150382 opposite is true.

When you letrepparttar 150383 housework slide,repparttar 150384 work you have to put into getting things back in order is horrendous.

Though you think you're saving time by grabbing some fast-food, you're really not saving much time and you're cutting your energy reserves down when you need them repparttar 150385 most.

When you push yourself to work that last couple of hours, even though you could pass out any minute - you're working much slower and making more mistakes. If you go to bed and getrepparttar 150386 rest you need,repparttar 150387 work would get done much faster.

Funny how these things work, isn't it?

So as tempted as I've been to let my business slide for a couple of days, I won't. I don't want to get in that habit. I don't have to put in 8 - 10 - 12 hours everyday, but there are things that need to be done everyday.
