Good Habits Out Of Bad

Good Habits Out Of Bad

Good Habits Out of BadHabits, by definition, are habitual things we do. Whether it be a habit of needing that after dinner cigarette or biting your fingernails during a stressful period, we all are creatures of habit no matter how spontaneous we like to think we are.

What do all these examples have in common? Well, theyre relatively negative conditions. Admittedly, twirling your hair or tapping your fingers on the table are rather benign, whereas smoking is not, but our framework for habits is that they are something to be broken.

Aristotle observed, We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

We are what we repeatedly do.

What habit could you begin to establish today that would have the greatest positive impact on your life? They say twentyone days is all it takes to make or break a habit. What if you got in the habit of listening to a light and sound session every morning for twentyone days? Or better yet, the habit of addressing each and every of your prospects and clients with their unconscious hello?

You most immediate goal may be in the realm of the personal, like contacting your other than conscious and having a good conversation about what you want in life. When you make contact with your other than conscious, talk about consciously creating the space for 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise each and ever day and make that a habit. Twenty one days of twenty minutes of cardio. That doesnt seem like an unachievable goal, does it?

Or maybe your immediate concern is business related. For 21 days program yourself to naturally use one persuasion skill each and every time you meet with a client. Or tell yourself you want to make contact with an affluent prospective client each day for 21 days. And after the 21 days are up, youve set yourself up to have a new, productive, positive habit.

exactly seizing the opportunity at point guard for the Warriors

A little bit of this and that from Warriors practice on Friday

Warriors coach Don Nelson has made it clear that the point guard position is still up for grabs, which isnt good news for Marcus Williams any way you cut it. Watson.

In the process, Williams ended up with a golden opportunity to become a starter on the highestscoring team in the league.

That was the gift he was handed with the Monta Ellis injury.

But its not going well. Just look at the evidence.

The Warriors brought in muchtraveled Dan Dickau once training camp already had begun, and now Nelson, the coach, is talking up littleknown DeMarcus Nelson, a player, as a point guard factor.

Fact is, Nelson has talked a good deal this training camp about DeMarcus Nelson, Watson and even Dickau. Not much about Williams.

On Friday, Nelson acknowledged that Dickaus experience six NBA seasons was noticeable compared with the other three point guards, none of whom has more than two years in the league.

Don Nelson was asked if he thought Corey Maggette could average 25 points per game. He wasnt a fan of the question.

Only if its the right way, Nelson said. I could get Dickau to get 25 points a game but hed need 60 shots. Yeah . only if its the right way. If the ball stops and theres too much isolation, then no, I dont want him to score 25.
