Small, Big Win for the Mind

Champions don’t do extraordinary things. They do ordinary things, but they do them without thinking, too fast for the other team to react. They follow the habits they’ve learned.
— Charles Duhigg, The Power of Habit

New Year resolutions can fill a girl's will with new hope and possibilities or cringe with revulsion. I confess, I am almost certainly one to roll their eyes when I hear new year, new me announcements, but it's only because I'm more than likely sitting with my king-size Kit Kat and thinking, "Dang, I really need to jump on that new year, new me train and get my life together." Understanding the root of my issues, it is but of course the bitter taste of the prior year's unaccomplishments that discourages overbearing new year, new me campaigns. Personally, setting mountain-high goals are intimidating, but learning to tackle huge goals by taking small steps that lead to habits that can easily intertwine with my lifestyle helps with the big picture.  Join me as I share small routine steps I am tackling in 2018 targeting the mind, body, and soul. It is the perfect blend for a #W that easily produces big results when the year ends. First up- a small, big win for the mind:

Read 1 non-fiction book every month in 2018.

Believe me, I am the first person to pick up a good novel rather than a non-fiction but there's so much wisdom out there and personal stories that are so good for the mind! Whether it be relational, faith-based, biography, how-to books, behavioral, success, or self-help- reading one non-fiction book a month is a small change that I know would yield big benefits this year. Below are some reads that Phoebe and I are ready to dig into.

PHOEBE'S 2018 BOOK LIST


GERRY'S 2018 BOOK LIST


So first up on my reading list is to start the Bible Project which is not a book per say, but a Bible reading plan together with the most captivating, creative videos. There's no excuse to miss-out on this reading plan with the Bible Project's phone app called "Read Scripture" that is free to download. I have been using the app since the beginning of the year and I now understand why fellow users rave about the Bible Project. It is fantastic!

 I'll make sure to check-in once in a while on IG regarding my book picks this year for accountability and I'll be back next week to share with you a small, big win step that I am incorporating to my lifestyle this year targeting the body! Stay tuned, Bebots!
