Habit Review for 2015

Tomorrow 2015 will be over.

I remember January 1st as if it was yesterday.

Interesting theory:

The reason each year seems to fly by faster than the last is that as you age, each year represents a smaller portion of your life.

Here’s a visual example:

If you’re 1 year old, one year is your entire life. If you’re 14 years old, one year is only 7% of your life.

And so on.

That means at 42 years old, a year is only 2% of the time you’re alive, and it gets less with every year!

Seems to be true for me, and while I always ponder about the happenings of the last 12 months during those last few days of the year, I thought I’d take those ponderings public this time.

Since this is a blog about habits, why not make it a habit review?

If I gave Hal 3 words to sum it all up, I know exactly what they would be:

The Miracle Morning.

After being hit by a car and declared dead for 6 minutes, spending 6 days in a coma and being told he would never walk again, today Hal is a top keynote speaker, bestselling author, helps and teaches thousands and oh, he also runs ultra-marathons.

How do you go from being dead to that?

Become your own MEDIC – Why you must leave your comfort zone to find happiness

Look around where you are right now. I guess you are reading this on the big screen of your computer at work, sitting in your height-adjustable office chair, coffee mug right next to you. Or maybe you are at the library, checking facebook, using their free wifi during a study break. Unless you are already home for the day, cuddled up on the couch in your pajamas with your iPad, freshly delivered pizza in the still warm box sitting on your lap.

Wherever you read this, I am betting you are knee deep inside your comfort zone.

I’ve been there. Often times I still am. But then I remember that I must leave it.

As comfy as it gets.
Right in the middle of the comfort zone.

Before convincing YOU to leave it, I would like you to do one thing. No worries, you won’t have to get up (yet). As in the article I talked about, rate your happiness on a scale of 0 to 10. Where do you land? Look at the important areas of life:
