On Quitting

It’s contagious. First and foremost, it should be known that quitting begets more quitting. Depending on how your self-talk is running right now, this might land on you as bad news. Let me interject. Sure, I hear you. It’s tough to hear that if you’re infected, so to speak, with a bout of quit. It might seem like you’ll never get out. However, there is great news here. 

Not quitting is also contagious.

Not only is not quitting contagious, the size of the thing you stay committed to doesn’t even matter at first. Pick small things. Try having a glass of water every morning after you wake up. Hint: if you pour it before you go to bed and leave it on your bathroom counter, you’ll always accomplish your goal to drink a glass of water first thing in the morning. 

The wonderful thing about this type of contagion is it builds. Soon you’ll not quit your mediation habit. Then, your gym routine and all kinds of other “big” things that we often quit. 

There are two contagious bugs in the air, so I hope you pick the right one to catch. Good luck!
