Simple Wisdom Tip #136: Atomic Habits
I just finished reading James Clear’s excellent book, Atomic Habits, published in 2018. It is truly a great read! It’s all about easy and proven ways to build good habits – and also to break bad ones. Some experts say that 95% of how our lives turn out is due to the habits we have and use regularly. I don’t know about you but most people I know – and some whom I have coached – could improve their habits. This book is readable and is chock full of useful ideas. Pick up a copy and see what you think.
Simple Wisdom Tip #135: Take Time to Be Kind
In this fast-paced world, we all move a mile a minute and often deal with people quickly and not always thoughtfully. As Stephen Covey often said and wrote, “Be efficient with things but be effective with people.” Showing kindness to everyone with whom we meet and work is the right thing to do but it is also a smart thing to do – for us. Look no further than the proverbs (11:17) – “When you’re kind to others, you help yourself.” Taking an extra few minutes to treat people kindly will pay dividends. Give it a try and see what happens.
