66 days

1462462987_thumb.jpegSo far his year I’ve done great things, met interesting people, and been to amazing places – hell, I ran my first half marathon and I feel great!

And I want more.

Too often, though, I am on to preparing and fretting about next “big thing.”  They’re all big things, and there’s always another one (thank goodness) around the corner – that’s just life.

I can’t quite remember the phrase, something I heard it years ago, it goes something like this:

I’ve done a lot great things, met interesting people, and been to amazing places in my life. I just wish I would have been there to enjoy them.

Sound familiar?

Yep, that’s me.

So I’ve decided it’s time to develop new habits to better enjoy life’s journey – I have rededicated this site to Habits of the Journey (HotJ).

Let’s get this started.  Conventional wisdom states that you have do something for 21 days times before it becomes a habit, but recent research actually indicates this number is closer to 66 days.

My challenge is to seek out being “in the moment” for the each of the next 66 days, which can be evidenced by an image, a phrase, a song, a quote from a book, a thought … whatever.

Just something about being “in the moment” over the next 66 days to kick-start this habit.  Check out the tag “In the moment” on the side of the blog and let me know what you think.
