It’s a new site by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits and author of The Power of Less.
It’s the antidote to the failure of New Year’s Resolutions.
- Pick 6 habits you’d like to form in 2010. Yes, just six.
- Read this blog and the free ebook that comes with it.
- Commit to following the steps I outline for creating your 6 new habits.
- Follow the simple steps, and you’ll have 6 amazing new habits.
Why Only 6 Habits?
Most people choose 10-12 habits they’d like to form, and fail. It’s as common as obesity these days, because while enthusiasm can be at an all-time high at around New Year’s, the knowledge of how to stick with the new habits is always elusive.
But I’ve solved that problem.
The 6 Habits method makes it extremely easy to start, build, and stick with new habits. All you have to do is follow the method.
You’ll form a new, long-term habit every 2 months, for a total of 6 new habits in 12 months.
How Habits Will Change Your Life
Think of it: what if you had done this at the beginning of 2009? You’d have 6 habits, such as:
- Daily exercise.
- Healthy eating.
- Waking early.
- Decluttering and simplifying.
- Creating each day.
With those 6 new habits, you’d be well on your way to being fitter than ever, more productive, more at peace, happier than ever.
In fact, I’ve created all of those habits and more, over the last several years, and using those habits I’ve accomplished a lot: ran 3 marathons and a couple of triathlons, lost 40 lbs. and most of my gut, become a vegan and an early riser, eliminated my debt and tripled my income, became a top blogger with 150K subscribers, and much more.
That’s not meant to be bragging, but to show you that it’s possible.
And I’ll show you how.
So pick just 6 changes to make this year. It’ll be your most amazing year ever.
