11 stealable habits that support my business + creativity

Trying to build better creative habits? Want to build habits that will support your business? Steal these 11 habits of mine!

The music at First Avenue is eardrum-ruining loud and – like an idiot – I’ve forgotten ear plugs. After a few songs I can’t enjoy because I’m certain I’m going deaf, I push my way towards the bathroom. I’m convinced I can fashion makeshift ear protection from tiny, wadded up pieces of toilet paper.

And it is there, in the bathroom stall at a music venue, that I see a quote that changes the way the way I navigate my professional and creative life:

We are what we do every day, so we might as well make it count. Click To Tweet

I ignore the profanities and graffiti surrounding this gem and stumble back into the music, thinking about this. If I am what I do every day, what things should I be doing every day? What kind of life do I want and what can I do every day to help me get there?

I thought about this, friends. I thought about it for the rest of the concert. I thought about it as I drove home. I thought about it as I lay in bed, squinting at the ceiling.

And then I slowly and systematically started to create habits that support theprofessional and creative life I want.

You’re smart. You already know that good habits will get you closer to the life you want. 

And you’re totally aware of the bad habits that are pushing you further from your goals.

But you just can’t seem to make habit change stick. You drink smoothies every morning for a few days and then fall off the wagon. You resist Netflix binges for a few weeks, but then you have a bad day and you’re back at it.

You see other people who seem to have all figured out. You wonder what they know that you don’t. 

“How can she go running every morning? Doesn’t she ever want to sleep in?”

“He never seems tempted to order a third beer. Why not? Where does he get all that self-control?”

“Every day she unpacks some impressive salad she brought from home and I’m over here with my mediocre $10 deli sandwich. Why can’t I be like that?”

I’ve been trying to build a regular fitness habit for a decade, but I wasn’t allowing myself room for any deviation whatsoever. Now I have a whole collection of mini ‘bookmark’ activities that I love to do, so that when I can’t get in a ‘real’ workout, I’m still moving my body every day and maintaining my habit.”  – Erin G.
