Well, I am at do 80 of my 300 Day Challenge of reading the scrolls in Og Mandino’s “The Greatest Salesman in the World” book. I am a third of my way through reading the Scroll Marked III.
So how am I doing in keeping up with reading each scroll 3 times a day? The below picture tells all:
I must say that is it challenging to read a scroll three times a day. Some days I have little down time, and am on the go from get up to shut eye. You may notice that I did manage to get five days in a row. These days just happen to coincide with me going to work.
I am making a more conscious choice to set the time aside to read the scrolls. Scheduling time in my diary each day. This is helping to keep me on track a lot better. Previously I used to rely on my memory.
So a key take out for any new habit or goal – write it down and schedule the activity in your diary. The scheduling is important as it means that you are taking it seriously and have set the time aside to complete the activity.
Another take out it to record your progress. As you can see in the above picture, I have written out the 30 days and am marking my progress. Be honest here. You will only be cheating yourself if you don’t record truthfully how you are going. This is feedback on your progress. It is not a judgement. It is only a fact.
You can, as I have, then choose a different behaviour to bring you back on track, and help you to reach your goal.
until next time
