The key to habit change is to start small and take it one habit at a time. Fuck that.

In 2015, I tried to put together an ideal week for me. I planned each minute. I would be productive. I would be healthy. I would be happy. I would properly allocate the different aspects of my life so my social, financial, personal, health and spiritual activities were in balance. I pretty much failed. It's hard. Seems like a good idea to do it again each year. My theory is if you undertake enough seismic changes, at least one or more will stick. I only do this once a year, for a month. In the other months, I do the tried and true one small habit change at a time.

I did have some anxiety during lunch with Austin. It passed. Caffeine? Talked to my ex-wife. I hope she is…
