When it comes to our daily routines, we have only two options:
- We can be REACTIVE and deal with things as they happen.
- We can be PROACTIVE and take action.
In other words, we can either be a thermostat or a thermometer.
You see, a thermometer simply tells you the current temperature of something. It REACTS to its surroundings, and will change to match the environment around it.
But a thermostat is different.
The environment doesn’t change the thermostat; instead, the thermostat changes its environment. A thermostat is PROACTIVE in setting the temperature, not just reporting it.
So what’s the difference between living like a reactive thermometer or like a proactive thermostat?
Habits are the real driver of positive change.
Research from Duke University shows that at least 40% of our daily actions are determined by our habits. Unfortunately, some of us let our bad habits drive us. We live like a thermometer, reacting to fires and emergencies as they happen (which is extremely stressful). But some live like a thermostat, intentionally forming their habits instead of being formed by them, which gives them the time and energy they need to focus on what’s important and do their best creative work.
The secret to your success is hidden in your daily routine.
