Hello there and thanks for visiting today.
The above quote embodies the entirely selfish motivation for the creation of this blog. I have some less than useful habits I'd like to shed, so I thought I'd collect some useful tips and aids to my goal, and maybe someone else out there can benefit too.

My main habit that I want to overcome will sound trivial, but over the months and years, it has gobbled up many hours (days and weeks in fact), which otherwise may have been productive. Every time I sit down at the computer, I end up flicking up a Solitaire or Freecell game, and wasting time. I am especially vulnerable when waiting for software to load or internet to connect or anything which doesn't happen nice and quick.

Motivation vs Habit

I liked this Jim Rohn quote I saw on Joe Vitale's Twitter page today.

"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." -Jim Rohn

That's a pretty good indication of how important the formation of new, supportive habits are, in enabling you to succeed, once you decide on a new direction. I've been thinking about this this morning, and wondering, what habits can I adopt, to get over the sudoku/solitaire type addictions I seem so often, to revert back to?
