Twelve Months in Year + Thirty Days to Form a Habit Equals

Twelve months in the year. Research shows it takes at least 30 days to create a habit, a long lasting change in your life. Is that good news or bad news? I'm not sure. It means there is no quick fix, unless you want to be on expensive medication for the rest of your life. Here are the twelve small habits that I will pursue in 2007.

1. January - Play Dance Dance Revolution every day in January. Why play a game for an entire month? For those in the know, DDR is not just a game, it's a workout and since we're buried under snow, my way of becoming healthier.
2. February - Work on Mainely Wired business 15 minutes per day.
3. March - Walk outside with my son at least 10 minutes everyday.
4. April - Spend 10 minutes per day reading about investing.
5. May - Wake up 15 minutes earlier everyday.
6. June - Wake up 30 minutes earlier everyday
7. July - Go swimming 3 times a week.
8. August - Write one note card per day to a friend or family member.
9. September - Do something nice for my husband at least once a day.
10. October - Spend 20 minutes a day learning about affiliate marketing.
11. November - Spend 15 minutes a day writing Christmas cards so they are done early.
12. December - Relax and enjoy the holiday season.

Hi Kat,
It looks like you have a good plan for 2007 to improve an already wonderful life. Good for you.
One observation and a question: I can see that you live in Minnesota -- swimming only in July; and, if I were to do something like this, where would I put, "Be spontaneous and do fun things without planning them"?
With all best wishes for continued success and happiness,

Thanks for compliments Bill. I guess I'm always looking for something to work on - life would be boring otherwise!

It's a good list. Not to difficult to achieve and yet each month will bring something new.
I just think it must be rough for your husband to wait all the way to September to be treated nice, ha,ha..
