It's been said that we are what our habits are.  I think its a pretty profound statement.  As humans, we are creatures of habit.  We are constantly trying to find a particular routine and then stick with it.  As I have gotten older, I have found that some of my routines are SO ingrained that the very movements I have between one thing and the other are exactly the same as the day before, the week before or even the month before.  I think we do this because we want to be as efficient as possible (at least that's what I tell myself haha).  But we have the ability to choose the habits we want and can work them into our worlds especially when we know there are some that should be there....like right NOW!  But how do you make a new habit your routine?  I have heard it said that for something to become a habit, you must do it for at least 18 days straight.  This means that if you want to change your eating routine, then you need to be on it for at least 18 days.  If you want to quit smoking then those first three weeks will be REALLY tough.  And if you want to improve your life by changing your daily routine, it will take at least 3 weeks of constantly being on track without falling off the bus.  One of the things I want to try is to get up early and do either some of my work then or to do some writing/creating.  I have read that for many very successful people, they use the early morning time to take care of much of their work, or to do something new or create something.  And I am a believer in the fact that you need to test something out before you can say it works or not.  For me to test this, I'll need to go to bed earlier.  This is a tough one for me because I usually do all my computer work then.  But I need to make some adjustment somewhere if the plan is to get up 90 minutes earlier.  If I can finish this post soon enough then I'll start it off tomorrow.  Wish me luck!  Any habit or routine you want to change?  What are you going to do to change it? ;)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
