Reasons Why?

I've been doing a lot of thinking recently about why. Why make healthy choices and how to make right choices. Sometimes it can be too overwhelming to think about end results and all the little steps involved when you're just starting out. That's why I find it helps me to think about the next right decision. Yes, have a goal, a direction, but don't think (or try to do) step #10 before you've done step #1. Basic, I know.

I'm the kind of person who loves to bounce around, drink in the sunshine, trying to start a million projects at once and only finishing about 1% of them...  working with single minded focus on a task until it's done can be quite the operation for me!

I find it fascinating that we were created with an innate desire to do and accomplish. Life was created with purpose, to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. That's why we should desire to do something of value with our lives. How? Well, our Creator was gracious and gave us the Bible as lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. We can know nothing of truth apart from this great Book. Anything and everything of truth is simply borrowed from the Author of truth, it wasn't created by us as humans. Thank God!

In a nutshell, here are some basic principles that can help us accomplish those seemly un-accomplishable (is that a word? LOL) goals (copied from zenhabits):
  1. Start very small
  2. Do only one change at a time 
  3. Be present and enjoy activity (don't think about results)
  4. Be grateful for every step you take
